FLUID BARRIER PROTECTION

LifeThreads fabric repels liquids - they bead up and roll off rather than soaking in. This prevents staining and lowers the frequency of laundering, lengthening the life of the garment and reducing energy and water use. Crucially, together with LifeThreads antimicrobial impregnation, this reduces soft -surface contamination.

ANTIMICROBIAL TECHNOLOGY

The ultra -lightweight fabric used in all LifeThreads garments is impregnated with an EPA -registered antimicrobial agent that ruptures the cell walls of bacteria and other microbial pathogens, quickly killing them. The agent doesn't break down or leach from the fabric with repeated washing—it lasts for the garment's useful life. In particular, LifeThreads fabric is highly effective against important pathogens like Staphy lococcusaureus (Saureus), including Methicillin-resistant Saureus (MRSA), and Escherichia coli (E coli). In every test performed, LifeThreads textiles reduce bacterial concentrations on the surface of the fabric by more than 99.9%.

MOISTURE WICKING

Moisture wicking LifeThreads fabric work 24/7 to keep you cool and comfortable in a fast moving work environment. The fabric works to pull any excess moisture off the body. This creats a much cooler, breathable fabric than traditional blends.

ANTIFUNGAL TECHNOLOGY

LifeThreads' antimicrobial compound so blocks the reproduction cycles of fungi—much more complex than those of bacteria—that cause problems like dandruff, athlete's foot, and ringworm as well as more serious conditions like the fungal lung infection aspergillosis. Given that fungal pathogens now cause more deaths than malaria worldwide, such protection is increasingly important to healthcare environments.

LifeThreads' scrubs are engineered with some of the most advanced technologies in the world. These innovative technologies inhibit the growth of unwanted bacteria directly on the fabric surface — and will last the useful life of the garment. LifeThreads incorporates four innovative technologies that co-exist with our soft, comfortable and stylish apparel for healthcare professionals. LifeThreads fabrics are treated with an EPA -registered antimicrobial active ingredient and binding agents that protect the fabric from pathogens found in clinical settings while at the same time  blocking fluids and suppressing unwanted odors
