Evaluation of Integrity of Gloves Used in a Flow Cytometry Laboratory

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of normal use on latex glove integrity in a flow cytometry laboratory. The gloves were tested using the 1,000 μL watertight test and met industrial standards (less than 4% leakage) before, but not after, use. More durable gloves, or more frequent changes of gloves, may be needed to ensure adequate barrier protection for laboratory workers during routine procedures.
