The Powder-Free Radiation Attenuating Gloves from Biodex provide increased protection from direct x-ray beam and scattered radiation, and reduce harmful radiation exposure during any procedure requiring the use of fluoroscopy.
Just .007" thick, these gloves provide superior performance and dexterity over thicker, conventional radiation gloves. The reduced thickness allows for more flexibility and greater touch sensitivity while decreasing finger fatigue & all factors critical when working with delicate instruments. Applications include fluoroscopy, radioisotope handling, radiology and nuclear medicine.
Because these gloves are powder-free, lead-free and latex-free, they offer a reduced risk of natural rubber latex allergies and are an environmentally friendly alternative to leaded gloves.
Powder-Free Radiation Attenuating Gloves meet the following attenuation values:
- 58.7% attenuation at 60KVP HVL = 2.3 mm Al
- 49.9% attenuation at 80KVP HVL = 3.3 mm Al
- 44.6% attenuation at 100KVP HVL = 4.3 mm Al
- 40.6% attenuation at 120KVP HVL = 5.6 mm Al
All gloves are shipped sterile and ready to use in single pair packages.
