If a lab jacket style is preferable, Tronex SMS551 Series with snap-front closure and soft knit cuffs and collar is designed to provide reliable protection and comfort. These durable, fluid-resistant lab jackets are ideal for moderate fluid-exposure settings.
Lab gowns are also a popular option, offering full-body coverage. Tronex 5800CHEMO Series Gowns meet AAMI Level 2 specifications for fluid resistance and features specialized construction and high-comfort design and fit. 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. A preferred disposable glove to clean lab tools, Tronex 3649 Series Latex Exam Gloves are specially formulated extra-thick gloves with 12” extended cuff length and puncture resistance.
Tronex 9128 Nitrile “NEW AGE®” Exam Gloves are crafted from an innovative nitrile material formulation that fosters exceptional fit and feel properties while offering chemo-rated barrier protection. For those with sensitive skin, Tronex 9770 Series Nitrile “NEW AGE®” Exam Gloves feature a specialized accelerator-free nitrile material formulation designed to further reduce the possibility of dermatitis while providing exceptional barrier protection.
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.
