– Comprehensive Gammex(R) Surgical Range and a Wide Selection of
Examination Gloves Offer Optimal Protection and Prevent Infections and

Ansell Healthcare, a global leader in barrier protective solutions, is
the developer of the Gammex(R) medical gloves, a series acclaimed by surgeons
worldwide for its exceptional combination of high protection and comfort
levels. Present for the third consecutive year Ansell will be demonstrating
its latest innovations at Arab Health (http://www.arabhealthonline.com/),
Middle East’s leading healthcare exhibition, from 25th to 28th January 2010
(Booth XC35).

At the Ansell booth, visitors will discover the Gammex(R) range in both
latex and synthetic materials. The flagship of Ansell’s surgical glove
offering has been embraced by healthcare workers the world over for its
combination of superior protection, comfort and great sensitivity. Gammex(R)
PF is considered to be one of the safest surgical gloves on the market, with
‘undetectable’ allergen levels, according to FITkit(R) tests.

The Gammex(R) range recently welcomed a number of synthetic solutions,
the Gammex(R)PF IsoDerm(R) and the Gammex(R) PF IsoDerm(R) Sensitive, both
latex-free polyisoprene gloves for surgeons with a type I latex allergy
and/or who treat sensitised patients. They complete the Gammex(R) PF
DermaPrene(R), a powder free, latex free, and accelerator free glove
providing an ideal solution to avoiding Type I and minimising Type IV
allergies and that has become surgeons’ first choice in synthetic gloves
throughout Europe.

On top of powder free solutions Ansell will demonstrate its innovative
HydraSoft(R) technology which has been designed to retain moisture and
rehydrate the skin, despite continual glove wearing and frequent contact with
astringent hand cleansers and disinfectants. The HydraSoft (R) technology has
been incorporated into Gammex(R) PF HydraSoft(R) and Gammex(R) PF Underglove.

Arab Health will also be the opportunity for Ansell to introduce its
international educational programme, AnsellCares(R). The AnsellCares(R)
on-line and off-line continuing education platform shares know-how with
healthcare communities around the world. Ansell also offers a wide range of
educational resources for preventing and managing latex allergies and
chemical sensitivities which can be accesses from the website
