BioSmart® is a patented technology, engineered into the fabric, that binds chlorine from the wash to the surface of the fabrics, the chlorine inhibits the growth and spread of bacteria. Here’s how. When laundered as directed with an EPA-registered chlorine bleach*, BioSmart® binds the chlorine to its surface, which then kills 99.9%** of many common bacteria and viruses.
BioSmart® technology is available in items such as medical labcoats, medical scrubs, privacy curtains, aprons, butcher coats, workshirts and pants through selected partners.
The fabric technology recharges with chlorine during each washing, thus providing a longer shelf life and optimizing value for manufacturers, laundries and consumers alike.
Independent, outside testing has demonstrated that when BioSmart® fabrics are laundered according to care instructions with EPA-registered chlorine bleach*, the chlorine kills 99.9** percent of common bacteria and viruses including:
There are many ways to break the chain of transmission including general safety, hygienic practices and implementation of a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point plan (HACCP). However, there is always the element of human error present. BioSmart® adds an extra layer of protection against contamination.
BioSmart® fabrics have passed the ISO skin irritation and skin sensitivity tests. BioSmart® has not been tested to allergens. If an allergic reaction is suspected, the individual should avoid continued use of a BioSmart®.
