Where Infection Protection Begins

For over 35 years, Shepard Medical Products has been an industry leader in the field of Infection Protection for the medical and other industries. We are the only infection protection products manufacturer dedicated exclusively to the growth and vitality of Independent Pharmacies. We offer products that are value-added in a commodity arena, far superior to any Big Box offering.


Our CareMates medical examination gloves meet or exceed all ASTM Standards for infection control. CareMates Nitrile medical examination gloves meet ASTM D6978 for resistance to permeation by 46 Chemotherapy Drugs and Fentanyl. Our USP 800 compliant Nitrile includes a patented low dermatitis formula. CareMates Nitrile is the glove of choice for chemotherapy and home infusion treatments and is perfect for compounding and retail pharmacies.


Our exclusively trademarked CareMates Vytrile™ gloves are a high-quality synthetic alternative to Latex gloves yet are still competitively priced. They meet ASTM F1671, tested for 0% viral penetration and 0% alcohol permeation. This medical grade, latex-free, powder-free glove is sturdy, soft, and flexible for a comfortable fit, an ideal glove for in-store vaccinations.


We also produce our full line of branded exam gloves and masks (CareMates, WorkMates, UltiMates), as well as private label. We are your "first call" for infection protection products.
