GMP FOR SURGICAL GLOVES
A Glove is a protective device. A Surgical Glove is much more than a protective device - it is a MEDICAL DEVICE, used in invasive surgery in a sterile area. A good glove therefore should not have any bio irritants present on the glove, which can cause health hazards to user and patient.
Natural Rubber Latex is the best Polymer for Surgical Glove as it provides optimum barrier properties, elasticity, comfort, fit and cost, and it has been used for Centuries.
However, recently Latex Gloves have come to be associated with Latex Allergies. What causes the allergy? Is it Natural Rubber Latex or the Manufacturing process adopted within the last two decades - first to meet increased demand and subsequently to reduce cost to sell gloves at a cheaper price due to competition, since supply currently exceeds demand?
It is the unscrupulous manufacturing practices that contribute to latex allergies from gloves.
The critical parameters that need special controls, apart from the physical properties and dimension for Surgical Gloves are:
- BARRIER PROPERTIES
- BIO BURDEN LEVEL ON GLOVES
- BACTERIAL ENDOTOXIN LEVELS
- MOISTURE CONTENT ON GLOVES
- RUBBER CHEMICAL RESIDUE
- LEACHING AND QUALITY OF WATER USED
- EXTRACTABLE LATEX PROTEIN
- QUALITY AND QUANTITY OF DONNING POWDER
- PACKING MATERIAL AND PACKING SYSTEM
- STERILIZATION PROCESS AND STERILITY ASSURANCE
