Ansell Healthcare Unveils New Packaging for Exam Gloves

RED BANK, N.J. -- Ansell Limited, a global leader in barrier protective healthcare products, unveils new packaging that makes it easier to identify the companys premium quality examination gloves. The new packaging is based on consultation with customers and the changing marketplace, and makes it easy to identify and select a quality Ansell exam glove with clear user information.

Due to latex allergies, powder sensitivities and other developments in the market, we recognized the need for packaging that makes it easy to identify glove type, said Heather Campbell, Ansell Healthcare Products LLCs Product Manager for Exams. Our new packaging allows medical professionals to quickly and confidently select premium exam gloves based on their requirements or preferences. As we continue to expand our portfolio of products, we realize that packaging which simplifies glove identification is imperative to meet the needs of our customers.

A full, color-coded palette has been developed for easy product identification. The all-new packaging features color-coded brand banners on the upper left and a color-coded sizing and material icon in the upper right. A no-latex symbol is prominently displayed on latex-free products, and a material bar details the specific gloving material on the prime display panel of the box. The clear design and consistency of the packaging makes it easy for nurses and other medical professionals to view glove size and material, as well as to determine whether the glove is powder-free or powdered, and latex or latex-free.

Over the next 12 months, the packaging will be incorporated into the complete Micro-Touch® glove line, including: DermaClean®, Powder, Elite®, E.P.® Gloves, Affinity®, NextStep®, Nitrile, Nitrile E.P.®, NitraTex® Sterile, and Smooth Nitrile. The new packaging will also be used for Ansells Conform Plus® and PerryTM X-AM® gloves.
