PlatinumCode Launches New, Improved, Ultra-Thin Nitrile Gloves

New nitrile exam gloves offer superior protection with ultra-thin 0.03g material

MINNEAPOLIS, March 31, 2014 – PlatinumCode, a leading manufacturer and supplier of specimen identification, transport and collection products for the healthcare industry, announced that they have launched a new and improved line of ultra-thin nitrile exam gloves. The latex-free and powder-free gloves were manufactured to offer superior stretch and to improve the safety of healthcare employees and patients.

As a manufacturer of nitrile gloves, PlatinumCode wanted to dramatically improve the overall construction of the glove – starting with the thickness.

PlatinumCode Vice President of Sales, Steve Griffith explained, “Because most of our gloves are used by phlebotomists, we wanted to specifically cater to their needs. Their feedback indicated that gloves need to not only be extremely safe, easy to put on, and protect against injuries, but also thin enough to feel an infants pulse – and we believe we achieved just that.”

PlatinumCode will offer Nitrile exam gloves in five sizes and are ambidextrous to make for easy donning. The gloves feature an ultra-thin construction (.03g thick), with nitrile construction for extra protection, and superior stretch for nearly zero tear. Gloves also feature textured fingertips for better grip, yet also allow for excellent pulse-finding capabilities.

“Over the years, we have manufactured a large number of gloves and have also tried the competition, and we have found this glove to really have all of the features we had hoped for – the ultimate in protection, ultra-thin construction and excellent stretch,” said Griffith, “Overall, we are very excited to officially launch these.”

PlatinumCode officially launched the gloves today, March 31, 2014 and they are available for purchase on or by calling 888.446.9965 (item number 3037NB).
