Studies show scrubs and lab coats can act as significant sources of microbial growth, especially when worn by healthcare providers who move from patient to patient in hospitals.
Microban provides these medical fabrics with effective, long-lasting antimicrobial protection. Our unique formulations are designed to keep scrubs and lab coats cleaner for longer.
During initial planning stages, Microban invites clients to share thoughts, opinions and feedback. Our engineers take these discussions with them to lab. After extensive testing, Microban’s R&D team determines which additive mixture best suits your specific antimicrobial protection needs based on your product's specific properties, environments and uses. Once this treatment is ensured to have proper antimicrobial performance, durability and product compatibility, we help clients 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.
Disinfectant and health claims and applications require finished products to be registered with the EPA under FIFRA. And they may also require clearance as medical devices by the FDA before they can be placed on the market. It’s important to note that treated article applications cannot claim antimicrobial protection beyond protection of the product itself from antimicrobial stains, odors and/or deterioration. They are not designed to protect users against illness or as a substitute for normal cleaning or hygiene practices.
Microban has the resources and industry experience you need to help navigate these complexities and to realize custom-engineered antimicrobial solutions within the healthcare sector.
Microban technologies are not designed to protect users against illness, and Microban makes no claims as such. Normal cleaning and hygiene practices should always be maintained.
