Ansell has announced that it has, through its subsidiary Ansell Healthcare Products LLC, reached an agreement to acquire gammaSupplies, a company that specialises in Validated Sterile RABS/Isolator long gloves. Headquartered in Florida, gammaSupplies Sterile long gloves are used in pharmaceutical and biologic manufacturing facilities around the globe.
gammaSupplies was founded in 2010 to fill the need for off-the-shelf, validated sterile personal and product protection gloves. Through validated and proprietary processes, the company developed the first portfolio of gloves that met SAL 10-6 and exceeded IEST standards for lack of particulates.
“This acquisition is another critical step in further expanding our life sciences offerings,” says Joe Kubicek, president healthcare global business unit at Ansell. “The Validated Sterile Isolator & RABS gloves and sleeves from gammaSupplies together with our current cleanroom protective glove and clothing range will help customers improve protection and productivity within critical environments.”
