4 APRIL 2013, Iselin, NJ – Ansell, a leader in protection solutions, today launched the MICRO-TOUCH® Denta-Glove™ Nitrile examination glove, a 100% nitrile solution that eliminates the risk of Type I (latex) allergies for dental professionals and patients alike.1
Designed to help ensure a safe working environment and excellent patient care, the MICRO-TOUCH® Denta-Glove™ Nitrile features textured fingertips to facilitate safe handling of instruments in wet or dry conditions.
