Operating room gloves

The differentiation criterion for surgical gloves or medical disposable gloves is the classification of sterile or pathogen-free (“low-germ” or “non-sterile”) products. As a rule of thumb, pathogen-free, i e. non-sterile gloves are sold in large packaging units and sterile ones are aways linked in pairs. Disposable medical gloves have to comply with European Standard 455 (EN 455).
