Celebrating our 26th year, Digitcare® Corporation has been operating since 1988 as a manufacturer and distributor of non-sterile and sterile examination glove products, which include powdered and powder-free latex exams, textured and smooth finish powder-free latex, synthetic non-latex exams and a variety of high-risk and specialty gloves.
Digitcare was originally founded by a clinical AIDS research doctor and UCLA faculty member, Michael Wool, MD and May Sun, whose family owned a latex plantation and glove factory in Malaysia. Recognizing the dangers of infectious fluids in clinical settings, Dr. Wool concluded manufacturing gloves that were thicker than conventional exam gloves would offer better protection. In 1990, John Hopkins University confirmed this concept when it published a study showing Digitcare’s exam gloves had the lowest barrier failures of all brands tested. It was Digitcare’s response to this landmark study that helped establish Digitcare as a leading innovative provider of quality exam gloves.
Digitcare® offers an extensive range of non-sterile, sterile and specialty gloves representing the most current technology and best performance available in the exam glove market today. Under the leadership of Bill Jordan – President, CEO, Digitcare is establishing itself as one of the leading exam/specialty glove manufacturers in the United States. Digitcare is also positioning itself as a quality – value leader in the Acute Care and Alternate Site markets. One of Digitcare’s objectives is to continuously look for new and unique niche glove products such as our 24″ sterile powder-free latex exam glove.
Mr. Jordan is also intent on positioning the company for continued growth through the next decade. The cornerstone of Digitcare’s growth will be Quality. Digitcare was originally registered ISO9001:2000 compliant in September 2008. We achieved additional success in this area by becoming ISO9001:2008 certified in October of 2009. We have established a rigorous series of Quality Benchmarks in the key areas of Customer Service & Satisfaction as well as Product Quality & Innovation. Our quality commitment correlates to delivering class-leading, customer focused products and services.
In addition, Digitcare® qualified nearly half of our products as being NFPA® 1999 – 2013 certified through Underwriters Laboratories® for our specialty EMS gloves. Digitcare believes that following a growth plan rooted in quality and exceeding customer product performance requirements will be one of our key success factors.
Digitcare’s factories are all ISO 9001:2008 certified. Our factories have implemented procedures to continually monitor and measure specifications throughout the manufacturing process. This helps insure that quality specifications are met.
In 2008 Digitcare® mandated that all of our gloves be manufactured to an Acceptable Quality Level minimum of 1.5 versus the FDA required AQL of 2.5 (0.65 for most of our EMS Gloves!). AQL is similar to a percentage, which means nearly 2.5% of the gloves in a given box can be defective and still pass FDA requirements. Digitcare’s lower AQL means fewer defects for better protection.
Digitcare’s sales organization was reorganized in 2010 to give better coverage to our Acute Care and Long Term Care end-user customer base.
Digitcare® has consistently designed and manufactured gloves that surpass FDA and ASTM requirements. Digitcare® has participated in numerous studies and independent laboratory tests, all of which have demonstrated Digitcare’s high quality and performance. Digitcare® products have successfully qualified for certification through UL® and ISO 9001:2008 after years of preparation and testing. Digitcare® does not simply claim quality; Digitcare® backs up its products with verified independent testing, published results and numerous certifications.
For the best combination of Quality, Comfort, Protection and Value, choose Digitcare®.
