Cardinal Health recently introduced its Flexal Nitrile exam glove that offers the flexibility and barrier protection of a nitrile glove with the tactile sensitivity of a latex one.

Developed in response to customer requests for a strong, comfortable, synthetic glove with the tactility of latex, the Flexal exam glove features a textured-fingertip that provides enhanced sensitivity over traditional nitrile gloves without compromising reliability or durability. As the newest nitrile glove in the Cardinal Health portfolio, Flexal provides a high-quality and cost-effective alternative to latex and nitrile gloves currently available in the market.

"Cardinal Health developed the Flexal Nitrile exam glove to improve a clinicians sense of touch while maintaining confidenc e in its barrier protection," says Lisa Ashby, president of category management for the medical segment of Cardinal Health. "We continue to innovate our product portfolio to provide cost-effective solutions that will help our customers improve the quality of care, and were pleased to offer this alternative in Flexal."

A powder-free addition to Cardinal Healths exam glove portfolio, Flexal complements the Esteem®, Flexam®, InstaGard®, and Triflex® product lines and the Esteem, Duraprene, Protegrity® and Triflex families of Cardinal Health surgical gloves.
