Regent Biogel LR962 and Bericah Finessis Zero size 7

Post by Tightgloves » Fri Jan 31, 2020 4:35 pm

Hi all

Does anyone know where can I buy some Regent Biogel LR962 (clear, not yellow) size 7 gloves for a reasonable price?
I live in Italy and I only found some 50-pairs packs for about 190€! I'd like to buy a few pairs.
Someone has some of them to sell?

Thanks!

Ebay presently (February 2020) has two listings for size 7 latex Biogels:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RUBBER-LATEX ... Swm~daaLTe [3 pairs for £5.99 plus postage]

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Biogel-Steri ... SwMmBVzyj- [10 pairs for £18.20 plus postage]

Both sellers will ship to Italy.

If you are concerned about the difference in colour (you say you want "clear not yellow") then I think the difference is mainly caused by the photography, and not in the actual colour of the gloves themselves. The Biogel natural rubber latex gloves are a translucent straw (pale gold) yellow in colour, and do not vary much in my experience. The Amazon listing shows them looking much whiter / paler than I have usually seen them. I do not know of any option for "clear" or "white" Biogel gloves in natural rubber, although some of the other types of Biogel may be different in colour. (They make synthetic rubber versions - not nice in my opinion - and also some coloured ones for use in double gloving situations.)

Happy hunting and even happier gloving!

Hi, majikic
I already have many surgical gloves and the ones I prefer are a pair (I have only a pair of them!) Maxitex Neuro PF size 6.5. They are very thin. Also the LR962 should be very thin. Some other Biogel gloves are thick...

Also Finessis Zero gloves are very, very interesting. The problem is that I don't find surgical gloves like them in small quantities for a low price...

Hello Tightgloves,

My apologies, you are correct that type LR962 is NOT the standard Biogel glove. But looking at the manufacturer's data it seems that LR962 is also not a specially thin glove: instead it has an extra grip on the outer surface, and is designated "Biogel M":

https://www.molnlycke.co.uk/products-so ... /biogel-m/

You may need to tick the box that says you are a medical professional to see this page, but no further details or proof are required. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, past the images & videos on gloving technique, to see the actual order codes. The glove numbers here are 962 followed by two digits representing size, so a size 7 is 96270, size 8.5 would be 96285 and so on.

If you're looking for THIN Biogel gloves, then you should consider the Biogel Super Sensitive, with has type number LR975:

https://www.molnlycke.co.uk/products-so ... sensitive/

They also make a thin version of their synthetic (polyisoprene) glove, which is called the "Biogel PI Micro", LR485...

https://www.molnlycke.co.uk/products-so ... -pi-micro/

Looking again to eBay, there is a seller in Spain (who will ship to Italy) offering the Biogel super-sensitive:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Biogel-Super ... Sw72JdXDs7

This Spanish seller (cyberbiotics) has a very good range of other surgical and clean-room gloves for sale - I would strongly advise looking at their other items. These include the Ansell Encore Latex Micro in a size 7 (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ansell-Encor ... Swxehc5vSu ) and Vasco Sensitive surgical gloves, also in size 7 (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vasco-OP-Sen ... SwAitdXSNP ). Both of these gloves are thinner than usual and might suit your preferences.

There's also a seller in the UK with Biogel Super Sensitive in size 7.5, but maybe that's too large for you:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Molnlycke-Bi ... Sw4RNdNw4o

Notice again the difference in colour compared with the Amazon photographs; again I would suggest this is due to the photography rather than real differences in the colour of the gloves (though some of course may be batch-to-batch variation and also age, which tends to darken the rubber). I hope this helps! (And yes, the Maxitex PF Neuro is a very nice glove, I had some of those myself but in a larger size 8 :-) )

Hello, majkic
You're right. I already saw something on ebay, but years ago I bought many gloves for a cheap price. Now I see only single pairs for something like 9€ and you have to add about 2€ to shipping charges for each pair more, then buying one or more pairs the price is 5,50€/pair + 2,50€ for shipping... :(
In 2004, I bought 5 pairs of Ansell surgical gloves for £1 +£1.78 for shipping! :) (ebay: themanwithnoname69)
In 2011, I bought 5 pairs of polyisoprene surgical gloves for £10, shipping to Italy included, from the same seller.
Now I've looked for that seller, but I didn't found him. :(
I've bought also from the_science_geek, but he doesn't sell anything at this moment.
