In this new video, we show you why when choosing our high-quality nitrile isolator/RABS gloves you are choosing the best protective gloves out there for not only you but the products you are compounding. 

Which Nitrile Isolator/RABS gloves should I choose?

Isolator/RABS gloves and their glove boxes play a vital role in protecting wearers and their products from contamination in cleanroom environments, safeguarding their well-being and product integrity in the face of potential workplace hazards. 

Our high-quality BioClean™ Nitrile Isolator/RABS portfolio consists not only of gloves, but also mittens, sleeves and sleeve/glove systems, all of which are individually triple-bagged in easy-to-open PE, enabling simple, convenient access. They are truly the best choice for workers seeking the perfect blend of comfort, protection and performance. 

But which gloves should you use for your specific application? The answer to this question hinges on a number of factors, not least the type of hazard faced and the level of protection needed. 

BioClean™ Nitrile Isolator/RABS gloves: What sets them apart? 

Nitrile is a synthetic, non-solvent based, FDA approved polymer and is an ideal material for parenteral drug manufacturing. With excellent antistatic properties preventing the buildup of static electricity, Nitrile is ideal for use with solvents and powders. Nitrile can withstand temperatures of up to 120°C and is autoclave compatible. It can also be sterilized by Gamma Irradiation and sanitized with Vaporised Hydrogen Peroxide (VHP) and Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA).

BioClean™ Nitrile Isolator/RABS gloves
are washed, processed and packaged within a cleanroom environment, ensuring the gloves are an ultra-low contamination risk before being introduced into the isolator glove box. Resistant to chemical hazards of varying severity (including cytotoxins), BioClean™ gloves are also powder- and latex-free, resulting in greater resilience and a lesser risk of Type IV latex allergies.

Their optimal comfort levels are coupled to a robust nitrile formulation that can withstand punctures and tears, making them the obvious choice for workers who require reassurance and genuine peace of mind. 

If you’re looking for isolator/RABS gloves that offer the highest level of protection, look no further than Ansell’s BioClean™ Nitrile range.
