A clinical study on 25 prediagnosed Type IV allergy participants found no reactions when using Biogel® NeoDerm®1.

Help is at hand for allergy sufferers

The Biogel® NeoDerm® surgical glove is safe for healthcare professionals susceptible to allergic contact dermatitis (Type IV allergic reactions) and to chemical additives, and it minimizes the possibility of glove-related latex protein sensitization.

Safety first with Biogel®

Every Biogel® glove (100%) is air-inflation tested and visually inspected for quality and user confidence. There is AQL freedom from holes in an industry-leading 0.652 after packaging and sterilization. Biogel® is proven to have the lowest glove failure rate among major competitors. Non-Biogel gloves are at least 3.5 times as likely to fail than Biogel® gloves3.
