Henry Schein Medical is now distributing Ansell Healthcare Product’s AlphaTec Model 214 gowns to practitioners in North America. These gowns feature DuPont Tyvek 1222A fabric and advanced chemical protection to enhance the safety of frontline medical workers.

Also, Henry Schein is supporting Ansell’s #NetworkofHeroes program, which offers support to non-PPE manufactures, as well as DuPont’s #TyvekTogether program, which partners with companies such as Ansell to help increase the supply of Tyvek garments.

“Henry Schein and Ansell share a commitment to help enhance the accessibility of reliable and durable gowns as well as the safety of frontline healthcare professionals,” said Brad Connett, president of the US Medical Group at Henry Schein.

“We are pleased to partner with Ansell and to leverage our strong distribution and supply chain network to increase the availability of its AlphaTec gowns featuring Tyvek 1222A fabric,” Connett said.

“Amid the soaring demand for personal protective equipment, partnering with Ansell can help us to deliver greater access to gowns our customers can rely on to help them safely delivery care to patients,” Connett said.

The long-sleeved, water-resistant, non-surgical gowns feature rear-fastening closures that tie at the neck and waist; concealed, non-latex elasticated cuffs; and bound seams.

Available in two sizes, M/L and XL/2XL, the gowns also feature advanced barrier protection with DuPont Tyvek 1222A fabric, which is intended for protective apparel such as coveralls, hoods, sleeves, and non-surgical isolation gowns.

“We are thrilled to partner with Henry Schein, whose extensive physician customer base can help us ensure greater reach and ultimately improved safety,” said Paul Bryce, vice president and general manager of Ansell Chemical Solutions SBU.

“Together, we are committed to helping ensure the safety of our frontline heroes,” Bryce said.
