Patent Issued for Apparel and Textile Fabric with Antimicrobial Properties
Date:5/6/2013

RIDGELAND, Miss. (PRWEB) May 06, 2013

Bert Rubinsky, CEO of Medical Grade Innovations (MGI), is announcing he has been issued a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office on fabric with antimicrobial properties. The patent number is 13/207,392.

Data from as far back as 1969*, shows that conventional fabric – poly-cotton used by medical institutions and clinics contributes to bacterial pathogen growth. In addition, bacterial pathogens can survive on poly-cotton up to 60 days if unwashed. Independent tests done at Accugen Laboratories showed that B++ fabric was 99.9% effective against inhibiting leading hospital acquired infections including Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, E. coli, Klebsiella and Pseudomonas.

“We have our police officers in bullet proof vests and our firefighters in fire retardant clothing. Our chicken farmers even follow strict operational procedures when it comes to apparel,” said Rubinsky. “Our medical professionals and those seeking medical care de
