Standard Practice for Assessment of Resistance of Medical Gloves to Permeation by Chemotherapy Drugs
Scope/Abstract
1.1 This practice covers a protocol for the assessment of resistance of medical glove materials to permeation by potentially hazardous cancer chemotherapy drugs under conditions of continuous contact. An assessment is made based on the permeation (breakthrough) of nine chemotherapy drugs through the glove material over a certain period of time.
