Readigloves Nytraguard ChemoPure Nitrile Gloves

The Readigloves Nytraguard ChemoPure Nitrile Gloves are highly versatile medical gloves that protect the user in both clinical and laboratory environments. 

These lightweight, durable gloves allow the wearer to handle tasks with great sensitivity and dexterity, as well as being resistant to rips and punctures. The Nytraguard ChemoPure Nitrile Gloves are designed to protect against chemical and viral penetration, including chemotherapy drugs, which can be highly toxic. These gloves are non-powdered to eliminate skin irritation and contamination. 

Applications of the Readigloves Nytraguard ChemoPure Nitrile Gloves

As a Class I Medical Device with chemical-resistant properties, the Nytraguard Chemopure provide protection in both clinical and laboratory environments. Example applications include:

  • Medical examination
  • Medical general purpose
  • Routine patient care
  • Care for the elderly
  • Professional care in the home
  • General tasks
  • Dentistry
  • Ambulance/paramedic use
  • Heavy gauge medical setting tasks
  • Hospital administration of chemotherapy drugs
  • Laboratories
  • Salon chemicals, such as dyes and perming solutions

Non-Irritating Materials

The Readigloves Nytraguard ChemoPure Gloves are nitrile gloves and are made with synthetic materials rather than natural latex. The main material is called acrylonitrile butadiene. This product does not contain latex or styrene or chemical accelerators and are powder free, so are suitable for those with intolerance to latex.

Thanks to this advanced film formulation, the ChemoPure is that it has been independently certified to Article 11B of the PPE Directive 89/686/EEC, as a Category lll complex design device.

Chemical Protection

One of the most hazardous tasks for a clinician is the administration of highly toxic chemotherapy drugs. As the European standard, EN 374-3, does not directly address the resistance to cytotoxic drugs, ChemoPure has been independently tested to the more rigorous ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) standard D6978-05.

This standard measures the breakthrough resistance to a mandatory list of seven drugs, plus two more of the manufacturer’s choice. ChemoPure performs extremely well, even against the most aggressive drugs, Carmustine and ThioTEPA.

Please see the table below for a breakdown of the ChemoPure's resistance to various chemicals.

Chemical Protection Level Breakthrough Time (minutes)
Sodium Hydroxide 40% 6 >480
Ethidium Bromide 5% 6 >480
Formaldehyde 37% 6 >480
Phenol 0.1% 6 >480
Sodium Hypochlorite 10% - 13% 6 >480
Sulphuric Acid 50% 6 >480
Methanol 1.5% in Water 6 >480
Gluteraldehyde 50% 6 >480
Isopropanol 70% 1 >10

Shelf Life
