Mydent International, Hauppauge, NY, introduces Defend® Silpure-Treated cotton poly scrubs with antimicrobial properties. Silpure is ionized silver that is woven into textiles during the manufacturing process, resulting in fabric with antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. Since Silpure is a treatment and not a coating, it cannot be washed away and will remain effective for the life of the garment, according to the company. Scrubs treated with Silpure not only help reduce the risk of cross-contamination, they stay cleaner and fresher because Silpure also kills odor-causing bacteria.

Defend Silpure-Treated Cotton Poly Scrubs are a 65/35 blend, with v-neck scrub tops and drawstring bottoms. The drawstring pants have a rear hip pocket; the v-neck tops have set-in sleeves and a left breast pocket. They have safety-stitched seams and reinforced stress points. They are available in five colors in small to extralarge unisex sizes. As with all Defend products, Silpure-treated scrubs come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
