Nitrile gloves are naturally latex free, and are designed for those with latex allergies or sensitivities, or for those treating patients with these conditions. Disposable nitrile gloves can be worn on either hand, and are more resistant to punctures or chemical damage than regular gloves. Nitrile gloves are used to protect both the patient and the practitioner, and are designed to promote a safe and sterile workplace. Purple nitrile gloves are tinted so they can quickly be distinguished from other gloves. In an emergency situation, you can be sure you have the right gloves when you select the ones with the purple tint! Nitrile gloves are available in several sizes, and are designed to protect both the hand and the wrist. Purple nitrile gloves are powder free, and are useful when powder contamination is a concern. Some medical tests can be affected by powdered gloves. Disposable nitrile gloves can be purchased in bulk for hospital or lab use from a medical supplier.
