Product Alternatives

Cardinal Health offers latex-free alternatives for many products that commonly contain natural rubber latex, including the following:



Our investment in synthetic alternatives has resulted in the industry's most comprehensive line of alternative materials, including some of the industry's leading products manufactured using neoprene, nitrile, PVC and synthetic coatings. Our market-leading Protexis™ powder-free surgical gloves (formerly known as Esteem® surgical gloves) incorporate our proprietary manufacturing technology to create a polyisoprene glove that fits, feels and performs so much like a latex, you'll have a hard time believing it's not. Our Esteem® Stretchy exam gloves feature an exclusive "stretchy" latex-free, powder-free formulation that offers all the protection of a synthetic while delivering latex-like comfort and flexibility.

Presource® Products and Services

We go beyond kitted medical surgical supplies to create comprehensive procedure supply chain management solutions that improve operational efficiency. Cardinal Health has responded to the growing need for latex-free products by providing a portfolio of several Presource® PBDS modules for commonly performed procedures. Using these modules means immediate patient preparation by your staff. Each latex-free module includes all appropriate supplies for perioperative care. These perioperative supplies are then bundled together according to patient care events.
