Biogel® surgical gloves

Superior protection

Biogel® is the world’s leading brand for high quality, technically advanced surgical gloves for healthcare professionals. Biogel® surgical gloves set the standards in protection and comfort, and have a superior puncture indication system for enhanced safety.

Biogel® is the only major surgical glove brand with a non-pyrogenic range, reducing the chance of irritation, fever and inflammation – reducing the need for costly post-operative interventions.
The wide range includes powder-free, low-protein natural rubber latex gloves and powder free synthetic surgical gloves that vary in sensitivity and texture to suit different comfort and protection needs Biogel® has an industry-leading freedom from holes AQL* of 0.65. The industry standard requirement for AQL* is 1.5. The lower the number, the fewer the holes and the higher the quality of glove. Biogel® is proven to have the lowest glove failure rate among major competitors. Non-Biogel gloves are at least 3.5 times as likely to fail than Biogel® gloves 2 .
