Synthetic surgical glove
Biogel PI Indicator Underglove
Synthetic (non-latex) surgical underglove for use alone or as part of the Biogel® Puncture Indication® System™
Biogel® Indicator® Underglove is a sterile, powder-free, synthetic, polyisoprene surgical glove that reduces the possibility of glove-related latex protein sensitization because it is made from a synthetic elastomer.
The gloves provide levels of fit, feel, and comfort comparable to natural rubber latex because synthetic polyisoprene shares similar molecular structure to natural rubber latex.
The underglove is blue in color and can be worn alone or as part of the Puncture Indication SystemTM, as the smooth surface is specifically engineered for unparalleled ease of double-gloving.
Recommended for use in all general surgeries or surgeries where latex allergies are a concern for patients or clinicians.
Tested according to ASTM 6978-05 and approved for use with chemotherapy agents. Please refer to permeation details for breakthrough times.

* AQL = Acceptable Quality Level refers to the maximum number of defective products that could be considered acceptable during the random sampling of an inspection, in this case freedom from holes in gloves.
A recent published study analyzed the clinical and operational costs related to the use of natural rubber latex gloves. The study found that the costs associated with latex allergy events and latex-related O.R. teardowns outweighed the line-item costs of synthetic or latex-free gloves. After the facility converted to Biogel synthetic gloves, they were able to reduce their overall costs by 25%, saving over $74,000.
Are your facility’s glove choices allowing safety and savings to slip through your fingers? Maybe it’s time to take a closer look at the power of a partnership with Mölnlycke. To learn more about the study or have a Biogel expert contact you, please click below.
