Buy Examination and surgical Gloves Online

Medical gloves are disposable gloves used during medical examinations and procedures that help prevent cross-contamination between caregivers and patients. Medical gloves are made of different polymers including latex, nitrile rubber, polyvinyl chloride and neoprene; they come unpowdered, or powdered with cornstarch to lubricate the gloves, making them easier to put on the hands. There are two main types of medical gloves: examination and surgical. Surgical gloves have more precise sizing with a better precision and sensitivity and are made to a higher standard.

Size

Examination gloves are available as either sterile or non-sterile, while surgical gloves are generally sterile. Examination gloves are sized in XS, S, M and L, some brands may offer size XL.

The sizing of surgical gloves are based on the measured length across the palm in inches, at a level slight above the thumb's sewn. Typical sizing ranges from 5.5 to 9.0 at an increment of 0.5. Some brands may also offer size 5.0 which is particularly relevant to women practitioners.
