Which nitrile glove do I need? A guide to Shield gloves

The range of Shield gloves is available in three different colours – adopting a traffic light system for straightforward selection of the glove type most appropriate for your task.  Each glove type is designed for a different type of hazard that would be present in your lab – general risks, biological risks and chemical risks. This traffic light system makes it easy for you to select the most appropriate glove at a glance.
