X-STATIC, the silver-based fiber technology, is now available in healthcare textiles, its maker announced. This new technology will aid facilities in implementing a proper soft surface bacterial management strategy as part of a larger effort to reduce healthcare associated infections, officials with Noble Biomaterials said. Soft surfaces (lab coats, scrubs, privacy curtains, bed linens) make up 90% of the patient care environment but are often overlooked in everyday infection prevention practices. X-STATIC fibers are permanently bonded with a layer of 99.9% pure metallic silver. This silver layer creates an ionic shield that permanently inhibits the growth of bacteria and fungi on the fabric surface, according to the firm.
