1 Product Launch Presentation January 2008 Gammex ® PF XP™ Extra protection for handling cytostatic agents January 2008, Ansell Healthcare Europe Marcus Heimann, Group Product Manager Professional Healthcare Ansell Europe 2008

2 Agenda Gammex ® PF XP ™ Technical Features and Benefits Healthcare risks associated with cytostatics Leading the research on cytostatic permeation ACPP: Results corresponding to real life conditions AnsellCares Support Documentation Regulatory Requirements (Personal Protective Equipment) Promotion & Launch Pack January 2008 Ansell Europe 2007 Gammex ® PF XP™ Extra protection for handling cytostatic agents.

3 Technical Features & Benefits - Indigo blue colour for easy identification of personal protection in a high risk environment - Optimized wall thickness (10% thicker) secures ACPP permeation times for effective barrier protection - Low risk of pin-holes due to increased wall thickness, visual inspection and water leak testing before packing GL I AQL 0.65 leads to high barrier protection (1) - Polyurethane lining with hydrophilic and hydrophobic elements facilitates damp donning and double gloving (1) - Improved grip level to secure safe handling of laboratory equipment - Provides superior comfort to avoid hand fatigue (specifically against Z+ from Berner) January 2008 Ansell Europe 2008 Gammex ® PF XP™ Extra protection for handling cytostatic agents.

4 Low allergenic profile of Gammex ® Technology. - Protein and Endogenous Allergen Reduction Leaching (P.E.A.R.L.) Technology that delivers a glove with extremely low extractible proteins, reducing risk of latex sensitization (Typical values are below < 10 µg/g (Modified Lowry / HPLC). Fitkit ™: Non detectible (very low allergenicity) – Sum of the four clinically relevant allergens measured below > 0.03 µg/g (9, 10, 11, 12) - Unique (PV100) accelerator becomes gases which are completely consumed during processing leaving non detectable chemical accelerator residue thereby reducing the risk of contact dermatitis.
