Sterile Garments Details
VAI’s disposable garment product line has been redeveloped and newly designed specifically for the needs of an aseptic cleanroom operation. The disposable garments have been refined to include more flexibility while maintaining a tailored design that works for all body types. VAI’s disposable garments provide 100% garment sterility assurance and a significantly reduced chance of gowning contamination, while keeping the comfort and breathability when compared to traditional, reusable garments.
VAI’s SMS garments are built using high quality spunbond-meltblown-spunbond (SMS) nonwoven polypropylene fabric @ 60g/m2 basis weight. This fabric type has high strength and outstanding moisture vapor transmission, which translates to overall increased operator comfort. Raw materials are quality assurance tested and lot controlled. Select the SMS garment line when comfort and breathability is the highest priority and minimal to moderate splash protection is required. The SMS garment material has excellent bacterial filtration efficiency.
VAI’s MP garments are built using a heavy weight, non-woven, high quality microporous coated material. The MP disposable garments are extremely tough and fluid resistant and have superior barrier performance. This MP fabric has the best particulate performance in its segment. MP fabric is suited for use where maximum protection to product or wearer is required. The MP material has excellent liquid resistance, and creates an impervious barrier that prevents passage of bacteria and non-viable particulates through the garment material.
SMS garment configurations include classic coveralls, coveralls with attached boots, coveralls with attached hood and boots, open face hoods, hoods with integrated face mask, and frocks. MP garment configurations include classic coveralls, open face hoods, hoods with integrated face mask, knee-high boots, protective sleeves, and frocks.
Disposable garments are packaged in VAI’s, patented, Easy2Gown fold system. The Easy2Gown design is a fold that makes a proper aseptic gowning procedure an easy process instead of a routine challenge. This allows operators to have fewer manipulations while donning these garments, therefore, reducing cross-contamination.The Easy2Gown system incorporates a patented fold that was designed to minimize contact between the operator and the outside of the gown. By presenting the inside of the gown upon opening the packaging, the sterile outside is protected from the transfer of contamination during the gowning process. The user is able to gown with minimal contact to the sterile, outside, portions of the gown. To learn more about our Easy2Gown system, click here.
