Antimicrobial Fabrics for Scrubs and Lab Coats


Cleaner Scrubs Start Here

Studies show that scrubs and lab coats are a significant source of microbe growth in the healthcare industry. With healthcare providers who move from patient to patient in hospitals, preventing the growth and spread of microbes through the use of antimicrobial fabrics is critical for patient health and protection.

Put an End to Offensive Odors with Antimicrobial Fabrics 

Microban® odor control technology is designed to provide medical fabrics with both effective and long-lasting antimicrobial protection. Our unique odor control formulations are applied directly to the fabric during the manufacturing process and work to keep scrubs and lab coats cleaner for longer.

A Custom-Designed Approach for Every Product

Our product developers at Microban provide turnkey solutions for each unique product application from antimicrobial fabrics to household products. During the initial planning stage, Microban invites partners to share thoughts, opinions and feedback. Our engineers take these discussions with them to lab. After extensive testing, the R&D team determines which additive mixture best suits your specific antimicrobial protection needs based on a product's specific properties, environments and uses.

Once this treatment is ensured to have proper antimicrobial performance, durability, and product compatibility, we help partners begin masterbatch production. Although the product development process is complete, our support team continues assisting partners with patent and regulatory counseling.

Expertise in a Highly Regulated Field

Products with disinfectant applications are required to register with the EPA under FIFRA, and may also require clearance as medical devices by the FDA before they can be placed on the market.

It is important to note that treated antimicrobial fabrics cannot claim protection beyond the product itself from antimicrobial stains, odors, and/or deterioration. Microban antimicrobial products are not designed to protect users against illnesses or be used as a substitute for normal cleaning or hygiene practices. Even with antimicrobial fabrics and protection, normal hygiene practices should always be maintained.

Microban has the resources and industry experience you need to help navigate these complexities and profit from custom-engineered antimicrobial solutions within the healthcare sector.
