Coming next month in JACS and online now: Novel test method for the evaluation of fluid leakage at the glove-gown interface and investigation of test parameters

F. Selcen Kilinc-Balci, PhD; Zafer Kahveci, PhD; and Patrick Yorio, PhD, report in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons (JACS) on a novel method they developed to evaluate fluid leakage and assess performance improvements with new gowns and gloves. Their method uses a robotic arm, which simulates arm movements made by health care personnel during fluid exposures.
