Lab gowns are also a popular option, offering full-body coverage. Tronex 6866BH Over-the-Head Gowns with impervious film & thumb hooks provide excellent protection while retaining comfort and breathability during extended wear, which is ideal for applications where there is a high risk of fluid exposure. Fluid-impervious coating provides leading barrier protection against exposure to blood, bodily fluids, chemicals, and other infectious substances.
A range of additional options are available depending on need and preference.
Disposable gloves for lab protection
While some lab work may require non-disposable work gloves, disposable gloves are often chosen for routine laboratory work for convenience and cost effectiveness. Latex and nitrile formulations are the most popular and protective in lab settings. It is important to choose the appropriate glove type – i.e., chemical resistant, heat resistant, etc. – for the hazard present.
Chemo-rated examination gloves are considered a top choice for a range of lab applications as they offer barrier protection from bloodborne pathogens as well as resistance to chemotherapy drugs and other chemicals.
Tronex 9393 Nitrile Chemo-Rated Exam Gloves are crafted from an innovative nitrile material formulation features enhanced tensile strength and durability, offering added softness for
comfort and reduced hand fatigue.
For lab work that requires additional protection, Tronex 9662 Nitrile Exam Gloves offer a heavy-duty, extra-thick style, chemo-rated style with 12″ extended cuff and fully textured surface for optimal strength, puncture resistance, barrier protection, and chemical resistance.
As with all protective lab wear, finding the right lab glove is a matter of preference balanced against careful consideration of the particular setting and protection needs.
