The widely acclaimed SHIELDskin™ gloves provide you with the highest level of “compliance, comfort and protection”. SHIELDskin™ nitrile/polychloroprene gloves have been specifically designed for laboratory use to protect your assays against contamination and to protect you against biological and chemical hazards.
The widely acclaimed SHIELDskin™ gloves provide you with the highest level of “compliance, comfort and protection”. SHIELDskin™ latex and nitrile/polychloroprene gloves have been specifically designed for laboratory use to protect your assays against contamination and to protect you against biological and chemical hazards.
SHIELDskin™ gloves are classified as Category III PPE against the mortal or irreversible risks as defined in the PPE Directive 89/686/EEC. Only Category III PPE gloves are likely to provide the necessary personal protection needed in a laboratory.
SHIELDskin™ nitrile/polychloroprene and latex gloves have been specifically designed for laboratory use to protect your assays against contamination and to protect you against biological and chemical hazards.
A minimum length of 260 mm/10.3″. SHIELDskin™ gloves are the first laboratory gloves to meet the minimum length requirement for liquid proof protection as specified in EN 374-1:2003. By offering 10% extra length compared to standard length laboratory gloves (240 mm) and with extra thickness, they provide optimal protection against biohazards and chemical splashes.
SHIELDskin™ gloves have an Acceptable Quality Level (AQL) of 0.65, representing a performance Level of 3 according to EN 374-2:2014. This level of protection in standard laboratory gloves has never previously been available and will provide additional confidence in meeting biosecurity procedures. Microorganism resistant per EN 374-2:2014 Level 3 (AQL 0.65) and virus resistant per ISO 16604:2004 Procedure B.
SHIELDskin™ ORANGE NITRILE™ gloves are accelerator-free, whilst SHIELDskin™ Bright Latex 300 are free of thiazoles and thiurams thereby limiting the risk of type IV allergic contact dermatitis (or type IV delayed hypersensitivity). Furthermore, there are non-detectable levels of chemical allergens using aqueous solution extraction (Phosphate buffered solution) and High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) assay method for quantitative analysis.
The SHIELDskin™ ORANGE NITRILE™ gloves are 100% latex-free providing a solution for those seeking to eliminate or minimize the risk of Natural Rubber Latex type I allergy (or type I hypersensitivity).

SHIELDskin™ is a range of gloves specifically developed for laboratory use and focuses on meeting the needs of users in terms of comfort, compliance and protection. They are registered according to Council Directive 89/686/EEC as Personal Protective Equipment Category III (Complex Design), offering protection to irreversible risk and have been tested according to the 2003 version of the standards. The synthetic gloves in this range are manufactured using a proprietary multi-polymer formulation, whilst the unique unique bicoloured appearance is based on a double dipping process. This twinSHIELD™ technology means that users enjoy double-walled protection. The colour ORANGE, typically associated with higher risk applications, allows for easy colour differentiation.
