How Antimicrobial Technology Works in Our Underscrubs
Ruby’s antimicrobial underscrubs contain silver, which kills bacteria, fungi, and certain viruses. Silver is a positively charged ion, which targets microorganisms, causing the following actions to kill them:
Silver ions bind to membrane proteins on the cell wall that are responsible for the transport of substances in and out of the cell. Blocking this transport contributes to the death of the cell. These same ions find their way inside the cell and bind to its DNA (thus disrupting cell replication). The silver also blocks the cell’s respiratory system, which destroys energy production, also contributing to cell death.
With this antimicrobial technology on board, you can rest assured that Ruby is helping you keep work at work by minimizing the germs you take home. Germs are killed on the inside of the garment as well, keeping you fresher and more confident.
Ruby’s long sleeve underscrubs are a favorite for women, nurses, and healthcare professionals everywhere. They move in all the ways you do. Raglan sleeves let you reach where you please; thumbholes keep your sleeves down when the occasion calls for it; and the extra length keeps you covered no matter which way you stretch and bend.
