Ansell Healthcare is a worldwide leader in hand protection for healthcare practitioners.
In hospitals and non-hospital settings
At Ansell Professional Healthcare, we manufacture and market a wide range of surgical and examination gloves.
Our extensive portfolio of powdered, powder-free and synthetic examination and surgical gloves provides appropriate barrier protection for all healthcare professionals.
In hospitals, caregivers use our standard surgery gloves and specialty gloves for micro-surgery, orthopaedics and X-ray protection;
our complete range of examination gloves.
In non-hospital settings, the same professional gloves are used by
independent nursing professionals;
Our recent history contains a number of milestones that place us in a class of our own:
we launched the first disposable surgical gloves in the 1950s;
on top of our own internal development, our portfolio has expanded with the acquisition of Smith & Nephew's line in 1995 and of the Micro-Touch range in 2000;
we pioneered the marketing of synthetic, accelerator-free surgical gloves;
over the last year we have played a major role in the switch-over of different markets from powdered to powder-free gloves, or from powder-free to synthetic gloves.
Our R&D department is also engaged in ongoing research to develop the next generations of natural latex and synthetic products. All these achievements have contributed to Ansell's solid reputation as a manufacturer and supplier of high-quality, innovative medical gloves.
The use of Ansell examination and surgical gloves protects professional healthcare workers and patients alike. The key need of allergy prevention is met with high quality, low-allergen latex gloves as well as latex-free gloves (surgical and examination). Offering optimal ease of use, the latex-free gloves match the recognised comfort of latex gloves.
Professional caregivers recognise the outstanding quality of our entire range, including:
DermaPrene Ultra, a synthetic, accelerator-free surgical glove;
Encore, a top-of-the-line surgical glove range for all types of surgery;
Gammex PF, a new generation of powder-free latex surgical gloves;
Micro-Touch, a superior examination glove combining comfort and safety.
