The hospital is the scariest place to be in the face of Earth because of the countless harmful microorganisms lurking in every corner and waiting for victims. But for healthcare workers, it's a place to literally survive because their livelihood largely depends on it. Significantly, the efforts of scientists paid off in the development of different types of antimicrobial or antibacterial fabrics used in tailoring medical scrubs. For Landau scrubs – bioshield – is the protection from bugs.
Bioshield is the technological fabric innovation that protects medical workers from harmful pathogens and deadly viruses. It's basically an antimicrobial coating that uses highly durable microbiostatic barrier for garment protection from microbial contamination. Its bacteriaBarrier prevents the growth of wide range of algae, bacteria, fungi, mildew, mold and yeast along with the odors associated to them. And according to independent testing laboratories, the technology can even effectively work against e coli, klebsiella pneumonia, staphylococcus aureus, and a number of other salmonella strains.
How does Landau bioshield work? The active ingredient of the technology, which is called Bioshield® 7200 or Organosilone, is an environment friendly mechanical process for preventing growth of pathogens. Through forming of positively charged polymer, the Organosilone is enabled to chemically bond to the fabric and act like a bed of microscopic spikes, piercing the cell walls of microbes upon contact with the garment. Landau bioshield does not create any dislodgeable residue, odor, leaching, off-gassing, migration or diffusion of the molecule, hence, safe for healthcare workers and patients alike. And with its extreme durability, even repeated washing will not be able to necessarily undermine organosilone effectiveness. Even the color of Landau antimicrobial scrubs is significantly and safely protected.
This good news is furthered by the USDA approval and EPA registration of the Bioshield technology as safe for use, even after contact with food surfaces. So, when it's protection that you want to prioritize, Landau scrubs with bioshield technology are perfect for you. Meta lab coats also provide similar fabric innovation.
