LifeThreads (www.life-threads.com) is a life sciences company that manufactures and distributes professional medical apparel which are protected from harmful pathogens found within institutional medical environments.
LifeThreads products are protected against harmful bacteria which may cause healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) such as staphylococcus – including MRSA – and E coli.
LifeThreads products are treated with zinc pyrithione, an EPA-registered, antimicrobial additive that is embedded into the textile during the manufacturing phase. It protects the treated fabric and attacks bacteria’s ability to reproduce and absorb nutrients which eventually leads to elimination of the bacteria.
The antimicrobial additive has an efficacy that lasts over the life of the product through multiple industrial launderings.
All of LifeThreads' products are extremely durable, comfortable and fashionable. The products compare favorably in cost in contrast to other solutions in the market.

The garments produced by the company, and the EPA-registered additives used in manufacturing, are completely safe for our employees and for all users of the company’s products. The company’s products adhere strictly to the OEKO-TEX® standard.
