Biogel® puncture indication system

Safe gloving, for all situations, all patients and all clinicians

Thanks to a coloured indicator glove that is worn under a neutral one, the risk of infection can be reduced for both clinicians and patients. The Biogel® puncture indication system is a double-gloving solution available in a wide range of gloves: Biogel PI Indicator® System and Biogel Indicator® System

Available in both latex and synthetic options

Alerts you with visible evidence of a perforation, in the presence of fluid, as it happens

Biogel double-gloving puncture indication system has a 97 percent accuracy rate in identifying punctures1

Clearer, faster and larger puncture indication system means you can detect up to 100 percent of punctures

The proof to back it up

Spots the risk

Surgeons using Biogel® Eclipse® Indicator noted 97 percent of glove punctures in the presence of fluid – enabling informed decisions about cross-infection1.

Reduces blood contamination

A study found that the blood contamination of hands was reduced from 13 percent with single-gloving to two percent when surgeons double-gloved2.

Safety first with Biogel

Every Biogel glove (100 percent) is air-inflation tested and visually inspected for quality and user confidence. There is AQL freedom from holes in an industry-leading 0.653 after packaging and sterilization. Biogel is proven to have the lowest glove failure rate among major competitors. Non-Biogel gloves are at least 3.5 times as likely to fail than Biogel gloves3.

Clear indication means less risk

Not all gloves are alike – the Biogel double-gloving puncture indication system provides the clearest puncture indication1. This enables informed decisions about cross infection.
