Contrary to conventional medical gloves that serve only as a passive barrier between microbes and your hands, AMG antimicrobial gloves can play a pivotal role to reduce cross-contamination and microbial transmission by using its microbe-killing mechanism.
The AMG antimicrobial glove is designed to kill microbes on the outer glove surface rapidly upon contact. Its key ingredient, a photosensitiser, is incorporated on the outer glove surface. Upon exposure to light, the photosensitiser reacts with oxygen in the immediate vicinity to generate singlet oxygen. This singlet oxygen is highly reactive and rapidly oxidises multiple structures of a microbial cell (including lipids and proteins), thus leading to the death of microbes.
Ultimately, AMG antimicrobial glove minimises the risk of microbial transmission from an infection source to a susceptible patient.
