Adenna Inc.'s Phantom Latex and Shadow Nitrile: Black Gloves for Police and Prisons

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - August 19, 2009) - Adenna Inc.'s Phantom® Latex and Shadow® Nitrile black color exam gloves are becoming the favorite gloves of law enforcement, correctional facility, homeland security, border control, DEA, and postal personnel, and they allow quick identification of unsafe light-colored substances, such as drugs.

Phantom® Latex exam gloves have the lowest allowable protein claim by the FDA to minimize rubber latex sensitivity. The fully textured surface provides an excellent grip, and the smooth interior finish provides easy donning and comfortable wear.

If you are sensitive to rubber latex, Shadow® Nitrile exam gloves are made for you. They are made of synthetic material, and are latex free and powder free. Through proprietary technology, Shadow® nitrile gloves are made softer, more flexible and stretchier than other nitrile gloves for comfortable wear. They also offer excellent puncture and chemical resistance.

"Buyers beware! Watch out for some black color gloves on the market today that are not medical grade or exam grade. These gloves are so called 'B-grade' or industrial grade and they are not suitable for certain applications in law enforcement or correctional facilities. They are in fact exam grade rejects. They do not pass quality control or are products that failed the FDA and ASTM's standard for healthcare uses," says Kevin Toshima, Business Development Manager of Adenna Inc.

Exam gloves provide barrier protection against bloodborne and other infectious pathogens. When coming in contact with blood, body fluids, or hazardous material, it is critical that you wear "medical grade" exam gloves. The FDA only allows medical grade exam gloves to be labeled with the word "EXAM" on the packaging. Both Phantom® and Shadow® gloves are exam grade and are made with the most stringent quality control meeting or exceeding the FDA and ASTM standards.

These gloves are packaged 100 pieces per box by weight, and they are available through authorized safety supply and healthcare supply distributors, including Henry Schein and Patterson Dental Supply. Contact them today to order or to request your free samples.
