ISELIN, N.J. (Jan. 9, 11:15 a.m. ET) — Ansell Ltd. has acquired virtually all the assets of Preferred Surgical Products LLC for an undisclosed amount.

The deal was made through a business unit, Ansell Healthcare Products LLC.

Ansell, a global manufacturer of gloves and condoms, bought the privately held developer of technology and products used for infection prevention because the firm’s “technology fits well within our Sandel brand of health care safety devices” and expands the firm’s safety offerings, according to Anthony Lopez, president and general manager of Ansell Medical Solutions.

Preferred Surgical’s infection protection products include antimicrobial disposable surgical table linens, surgical equipment covers, ultrasound covers and covers for radiology equipment.
