“Scientists develop world’s first antimicrobial medical gloves”
” Medical glove makers Hartalega has funded and supported antimicrobial research and development firm Chemical Intelligence UK to develop new gloves.
The University of Nottingham microbiologist professor Emeritus Richard James, and chemist and Nottingham alumnus Paul WighDr Paul Wight were also involved in the development of world’s first non-leaching antimicrobial medical gloves.
Professor James said: “I am delighted that my lifetime’s research into bacteria and antibiotic resistance has directly informed the science behind a practical tool that will have a major impact on medical care in the future.”
The gloves are said to include new active microorganism-killing molecule, which can prevent the spread of bacteria to and from surfaces and people.
According to the University of Nottingham, the gloves achieved up to a 99.9% kill within just five minutes of contact in independent testing.”
