Introducing FITkit™

Quattromed has developed FITkit™, a sensitive and accurate immunological test for determination of latex allergens in natural rubber latex (NRL) products. This innovative method is the first ever test for the measurement of clinically relevant NRL allergens, and enables standardization and quantification of individual allergens. The allergens showing the highest “potential” (type I allergies) are the following: Hev b1, Hev b3, Hev b5 and Hev b6.02. 

Producing low allergen gloves has always been  Ansell’s top priority and thanks to the company’s unique manufacturing process, this goal has been achieved over the past years, helping Ansell to produce top quality, low protein, state-of-the-art, surgical gloves. 

This is borne out by FITkit™ tests on Ansell gloves which demonstrate practically no detectable allergens across the entire range of surgical gloves. Such results cannot be claimed by all surgical glove manufacturers – and some are not even FITkit™ tested. 

To be certain – insist on FITkit™ testing – insist on Ansell surgical gloves!
