Biogel® puncture indication system

Safe gloving, for all situations, all patients and all clinicians

Thanks to a coloured indicator glove that is worn under a neutral one, the risk of infection can be reduced for both clinicians and patients. The Biogel® puncture indication system is a double-gloving solution available in a wide range of gloves: Biogel PI Indicator® System and Biogel Eclipse® for exceptional comfort and softness.

Available in both latex and non-latex options

Alerts you with visible evidence of a perforation, in the presence of fluid, as it happens

Biogel double-gloving puncture indication system has a 97% accuracy rate in identifying punctures1

Clearer, faster and larger puncture indication system means you can detect up to 100% of punctures

The proof to back it up

 

Spots the risk

Surgeons using Biogel® Eclipse® Indicator noted 97 percent of glove punctures in the presence of fluid – enabling informed decisions about cross-infection.1

Reduces blood contamination

A study found that the blood contamination of hands was reduced from 13 percent with single-gloving to two percent when surgeons double-gloved.2

Safety first with Biogel

Every Biogel glove (100 percent) is air-inflation tested and visually inspected for quality and user confidence. There is AQL freedom from holes in an industry-leading 0.653 after packaging and sterilization. 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 gloves3.

Clear indication means less risk

Not all gloves are alike – the Biogel double-gloving puncture indication system provides the clearest puncture indication1. This enables informed decisions about cross-infection.
