"In the seven years that I've been in law enforcement, I've put myself at risk for catching a communicable disease because gloves aren't enough to prevent a needle stick... I think officers today have a greater chance of getting stuck with a needle than being shot." - Adam Burns, a South Florida police officer and advocate of the Ampel Probe
Why Gloves Alone Are Not The Solution
While gloves are a step in the right direction towards sharps injury prevention, gloves alone are not enough. All to often, glove manufacturer advertisements can be very misleading. Their product photographs and promotional videos can lead viewers to believe their gloves will prevent a needle stick. However, upon closer inspection of these advertisements there is always a disclaimer stating that their products are only cut and puncture resistent and that they are not puncture proof. In fact, there is not one manufacturer of protective gloves that will guaranty their product to be puncture proof. Not one. Unfortunately, these misleading advertisements can lull a user into a false sense of security placing them at even greater risk of a potential accident. This is not in the best interest of the customer.

Ampel Probe User Testimonials
DON'T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT... TAKE A MOMENT AND READ WHAT PROFESSIONALS FROM AROUND THE WORLD HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE AMPEL PROBE...
"The Ampel Probe is not another gadget to wear or store in your box but an essential
tool to protect your life in so many ways, everyday. Personally, during
my years in Special Operations and as a First Responder in the medical
field, wish I could have had access to at least one Ampel Probe tool.
The manipulation and especially the stand off distance provided by the
tool is essential to the peace officer, bomb technician, investigator
and paramedic whether you are collecting evidence or using them to
conduct personal pat down searches."
