ChemoGLO™ Wipe Kit
importance of use
Antineoplastic agents are harmful to healthy cells and tissues as well as to cancerous cells.
Pharmacists who prepare these drugs or nurses who may prepare and/or administer them are the two occupational
groups who have the highest potential exposure to antineoplastic agents.
ChemoGLO™ historical data shows that 80-90% of sites tested have at least one area of detectable drug residue on surfaces
in preparation and administration areas. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommends that
employers develop a medical surveillance program to monitor the safety of the employees working with hazardous drugs.
This recommendation includes using baseline data and ongoing monitoring of environmental hazards as a way to assess the
potential risk of employee exposure to hazardous drugs.
Using the ChemoGLO™ Wipe Kit is the easiest, fastest, and most reliable way to get quantitative data on potential hazardous
drug exposures at baseline and for ongoing risk assessments.
