Briefly describe the
product: Life Threads,
a life sciences company
focused on infection control and management,
offers a line of antimicrobial scrubs designed to
act as an added layer of protection in healthcare facilities.
The garments are treated with an EPA-registered, zinc-based
additive that inhibits the growth of bacteria on the fabric’s
surface by 99.99 percent. They are also antifungal with odor
control and feature fluid-barrier technology, repelling dangerous fluids that medical professionals encounter.
Made with a soft polyester-cotton blend, Life Threads’ scrubs
can be laundered using the same protocols as conventional
equivalents with no impact to the antimicrobial characteristics
for the life of the product.
Describe what sets this apart from others available on the
market: Life Threads produces the only medical apparel using
the zinc-based additive, offering antimicrobial and antifungal
protection with comfort, durability and cost-effectiveness
when compared to similar products.
InstruSafe’s Instrument Protection
Briefly describe the
instrument protection trays protect and
organize surgical instruments during the sterilization, transport, and
storage processes. Each tray is FDA 510(k) cleared for a
variety of sterilization cycles. Our trays are constructed
of highly perforated aluminum with retractable handles
and silicone feet. Instruments are secured by soft and
durable silicone holders made to fit each specific instrument within the base and cover to provide 360 degrees
of protection. Our fully customizable trays offer the
potential to reduce instrument repair and replacement
which are typically caused by mishandling of trays during their day-to-day use cycle.
Describe what sets this apart from others available on
the market: InstruSafe trays are fully customized to virtually any instrument set and can be reconfigured at any
time to accommodate changes in preference or needs.
I made a change that makes
our hospital safer for our
patients and employees.
