Metallic Silver Scrubs to Fight HAIs?

December 31, 2012

Infinitude Clothing has partnered with Noble Biomaterials to incorporate X-STATIC Antimicrobial Technology into a new line of medical scrubs, viagra white coats, surgical hats and caps, and stethoscope covers.

According to a press release:

X-STATIC antimicrobial technology permanently bonds textile fibers with a layer of 99.9 percent pure metallic silver. The silver layer creates an ionic shield that inhibits the growth of bacteria and fungi directly on the surface of the fabric. It provides permanent protection for patients and staff between launderings, lasts the life of the product and since its inherent in the fabric, does not require modification in staff behavior.

“We recognize the importance of infection control in healthcare today,” said Dr. Gil Ortega , board-certified orthopedic surgeon and founder of Infinitude Clothing. “Infinitude Clothing powered by X-STATIC technology will allow our customers to not only look and feel great, but better equip them in the battle against healthcare associated infections.”
