Biogel Eclipse Indicator

Biogel Eclipse Indicator makes double-gloving feel better than ever before

In some cases, it can take up to 120 days for surgeons to feel comfortable with double gloves1. Thanks to a unique pretreatment process, Biogel Eclipse® Indicator® is a breakthrough in fit, feel and comfort, and eclipses conventional latex. It is the double-gloving solution that preserves your dexterity and sensitivity.

Great fit, feel and comfort – Biogel coating makes gloves easy to don even with damp hands, and soothes the skin to prevent moisture loss1, 7

A low AQL* of 0.65 after packaging and sterilization, is achieved among many things through 100% air inflation inspection prior to packaging

Clearer, faster and larger puncture indication system means you can detect up to 97% of punctures

Competing glove types are at least 3.5 times as likely to fail3

Every glove is non-pyrogenic, sterile and powder-free glove, and this reduces the risk of post-operative complications

The only manufacturer with an exclusively powder-free surgical glove range

Why is comfort so important for double gloving?

(mm:ss)

  • Biogel Eclipse latex gloves are typically 30% softer than Biogel® Surgeons – that means more comfort
  • It is essential that surgical teams are able to operate in comfort and confidence to focus on the task at hand
  • The need is for gloves that maximise comfort, dexterity and ease of use
  • Up to 26% of surgeons report removing their standard double glove solution due to reduced sensitivity and dexterity4 

* AQL = Acceptable Quality Level refers to the maximum number of defective products that could be considered acceptable during the random sampling of an inspection, in this case freedom from holes in gloves.
