Probe covers

Sterilizable Cariflex polyisoprene products are easy to process into thin films that exhibit good transparency for producing medical probe covers.  This latex material does not contain natural rubber proteins to reduce possible Type 1 patient and technician allergic reactions.  Cariflex polyisoprene probe covers retain its shape to fit probes securely over time.  The films are also durable and can withstand exposure to gels and fluids to which it may be exposed. Cariflex polyisoprene latex meets USP class VI requirements, allowing manufacturers to produce low toxicity probe covers that can potentially be used in sensitive areas where biocompatibility matters.
