Vestagen Technical Textiles Launches Online Retail Store
Groundbreaking Advance in Infection Control Available Directly to Consumers
(ORLANDO, Fla.) April 20, 2010 – Vestagen Technical Textiles announced that its innovative line of nanotechnology-based medical apparel is now available for sale online. At www.VestexProtects.com, nurses and other medical professionals can learn more about Vestex™ technology and purchase their own Vestex garments through the secure online store.
“The launch of this retail site is a great step forward for us,” said Ben Favret, president and CEO of Vestagen. “While the bulk of our sales come from hospitals and health care institutions, we want every nurse and physician to have access to Vestex technology.”
Vestex garments feature a dual action technology to reduce the threat of clothing contamination in health care settings. The fabric is impregnated with nano-sized particles, which change the surface area of the fabric, increasing tension and creating a barrier to fluids such as blood and vomit. After the repellency feature sheds bulk contaminants, the Vestex antimicrobial property rapidly eradicates any remaining microbes on the fabric –99.9% are eliminated in fewer than 10 minutes. In addition, Vestex minimizes odor and is naturally self-cleaning, helping to keep medical personnel clean, cool and dry.
“Vestex absolutely repels substances,” says Wilma Schmidt, a registered nurse at Lakewood Ranch Medical Center in Sarasota, Fla. Schmidt recently spent 10 days volunteering in Haiti, administering medical care to earthquake victims at St. Francis hospital.
“Wearing Vestex in Port au Prince gave me an added feeling of protection,” Schmidt says. “I felt more confident and safe knowing that fluids would just roll off my scrubs, and nothing would permeate.”
Vestex garments are currently available in lab coats, scrub tops and pants, and long-sleeved T-shirts, with prices starting at $26.99. Scrubs come in sizes XXS-XXXL and are available in ceil blue, royal blue or jade green, with more colors continually being added. Vestex garments are backed with a product guarantee and ship within one business day. For more details and to purchase, please visit www.VestexProtects.com.
