I've tested ShieldMaster Purple Knight (Lot #'s 2313 S-2, 1358 S-2,
and a sample from an unidentified lot), Kimberly Clark Safeskin
Purple Nitrile (Lot # 30225-1B), and N-Dex 6005PFM (lot information

Ongoing testing within this very limited sample indicates that there
is significant variation in test results among brands of chlorinated
nitrile gloves.  I wish to stress that these results are very
preliminary and by no means conclusive. I am sharing this
information with the DistList not as a recommendation or
contraindication of any specific brand of glove, but rather to
underscore the need for more testing in this area.
