A Wide Variety of Medical Examination Gloves

Henry Schein is a leading supplier of medical exam gloves. There are two major factors when selecting the proper medical glove: barrier protection and allergen content. Henry Schein understands that all patients are different — therefore, we manufacture and carry a wide variety of exam gloves, including:

  • Latex gloves: Latex gloves are the most common type of medical glove, and they are known for their elasticity, comfort, and fit. However, some people are allergic to latex, so non-latex gloves are a good option for these individuals
  • Non-latex exam gloves: Non-latex exam gloves are a good choice for people who are allergic to latex, or for those who need a glove that is less likely to cause allergic reactions in their patients
  • Vinyl gloves: Vinyl gloves are the least expensive type of medical glove, but they are also the least durable. They are often used for short-term procedures that do not involve contact with bodily fluids
  • Nitrile gloves: Nitrile gloves are a good all-purpose medical glove. They are durable, puncture-resistant, and resistant to chemicals. They are also a good choice for people who are allergic to latex
  • Sterile gloves: Sterile gloves are used for surgical procedures and other procedures that require a sterile environment. They are available in a variety of materials, including latex, nitrile, and vinyl
  • Aloe gloves: Aloe gloves are lined with aloe vera, which can help to moisturize and protect the wearer's skin. They are a good choice for people who have sensitive skin or who are prone to dryness
  • Synthetic gloves: Synthetic gloves are made from a variety of man-made materials, such as nitrile and neoprene. They are often used by people who are allergic to latex or vinyl
  • Chemo and radiation gloves: Chemo and radiation gloves are designed to protect the wearer from exposure to chemotherapy drugs and radiation. They are typically made from thick, durable materials such as nitrile or neoprene

When to Wear Medical Exam Gloves

The CDC guidelines states that all health care professionals should wear gloves when coming into contact with blood, bodily fluids, and/or when other hazardous waste may be a possibility. Henry Schein has hundreds of varieties of different styles and sizes of exam gloves at competitive prices. Learn more about our products or log in to start purchasing.

Latex Gloves

  • Made from natural rubber latex

Nitrile Gloves

  • Made from synthetic rubber
  • More resistant to punctures and chemicals than latex gloves
  • Good alternative for those with latex sensitivities
  • Commonly used in health care settings due to their superior chemical resistance and barrier protection against blood-borne pathogens
  • Increased durability and longer shelf life

Vinyl Gloves

  • Made from synthetic materials, specifically PVC (polyvinyl chloride)
  • Do not offer the same level of barrier protection as nitrile or latex gloves, especially against viruses and bacteria
  • Known for their comfortable fit and excellent flexibility
  • Have low particulate and protein content, making them suitable for use in environments that require a low particulate count, such as cleanrooms

Safe Medical Glove Removal

The CDC's recommendation for safe glove removal is:

  1. Grasp the outside of one glove at the wrist. Do not touch your bare skin.
  2. Peel the glove away from your body, pulling it inside out.
  3. Hold the glove you just removed in your gloved hand.
  4. Peel off the second glove by putting your fingers inside the glove at the top of your wrist.
  5. Turn the second glove inside out while pulling it away from your body, leaving the first glove inside the second.
  6. Dispose of the gloves safely. Do not reuse the gloves.
  7. Clean your hands immediately after removing gloves.

What are the Best Medical Gloves for Sensitive Skin?

We understand the importance of providing optimal protection without compromising your comfort. For individuals with sensitive skin, we highly recommend considering gloves made from nitrile material. Nitrile gloves are an excellent choice for those with sensitivities as they are non-latex and hypoallergenic. Unlike latex gloves, which may trigger allergic reactions in some individuals, nitrile gloves offer a gentle touch while maintaining a high level of durability and barrier protection. Their soft and flexible composition ensures a comfortable fit without sacrificing tactile sensitivity. By choosing nitrile gloves, you can confidently safeguard yourself and your patients, ensuring both safety and comfort during medical procedures.
