Subject: Methaneseleninic acid gloves?

We had a question about the correct gloves to wear when working with  
Methaneseleninic acid. The Sigma/Aldrich MSDS helpfully says "Handle  
with gloves", but given the stench and high toxicity of the material,  
the researcher (and we) would like something more specific. The  
process is weighing out and dissolving the powder in water.

Any information would be appreciated.
