Difference between disposable lab coats, disposable isolation gowns, and disposable surgical gowns

Disposable lab coats, disposable surgical gowns, and disposable isolation gowns are all commonly used in hospitals or laboratories for personal protective equipment.

A. Disposable isolation gown

Disposable isolation gowns are used to protect medical personnel from contamination by blood, body fluids, and other infectious materials when in contact with, or to protect patients from, infection.

Disposable isolation suits are recommended for the following situations.

a. When contacting patients with infectious diseases transmitted by contact, such as patients with multi-drug resistant bacteria infections, etc.

b. When implementing protective isolation for patients, such as patients with large burns, bone with the treatment and care of transplant patients.

c. When the operator may be splashed by the patient's blood, body fluids, secretions, and drainage receptacles.

d. The need to wear isolation gowns when entering key departments such as ICU, NICU, protective wards, etc. should be determined by the purpose of medical staff entry and contact status with patients.

Disposable isolation gowns are usually made of non-woven materials or combined with materials with better impermeability such as plastic films. Integrity and toughness are achieved through the use of various nonwoven fiber joining techniques rather than geometric interlocking of woven and knitted materials. The barrier garment should be able to cover the torso and the entire garment to form a physical barrier to the spread of microorganisms and other materials. It should have abrasion resistance, impermeability, and tear resistance. At present, there is no special standard in China, only a brief introduction on the donning and doffing of isolation gowns in the Technical Specification for Isolation (isolation gowns should have a rear opening and be able to cover all clothes and exposed skin), but there are no relevant indicators on specifications and materials. Isolation gowns can be reusable or disposable without a cap. From the definition of isolation gowns in the Technical Specification for Hospital Isolation, there is no requirement for impermeability, and isolation gowns can be waterproof or non-waterproof.

B. Disposable lab coats

Disposable lab coats are to prevent healthcare workers from being infected and are in single isolation.

Disposable lab coats are recommended for the following situations.

a. When in contact with patients with Category A or infectious diseases managed according to Category A.

b. The latest infection control guidelines should be followed when exposed to patients with suspected or confirmed SARS, Ebola, MERS, H7N9 avian influenza, etc.

C. Disposable surgical gowns

Surgical gowns play a two-way protective role in actual use. First, the gown creates a barrier between the patient and the medical staff, reducing the probability of the medical staff coming into contact with potential sources of infection such as the patient's blood or other body fluids during surgery; second, the gown can block the transmission of various bacteria that have colonized/adhered to the skin or clothing surface of the medical staff to the surgical patient, effectively avoiding the spread of multi-drug resistant bacteria such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE), etc. (VRE), etc. Therefore, the barrier function of surgical gowns is considered critical to reducing the risk of infection during surgery.

They are used when invasive treatment of patients is performed in specialized operating rooms after strict sterilization.

Surgical gowns should be impermeable, sterile, one-piece, and without a hood. The general surgical gown cuffs are elasticated for ease of wear and favorable for wearing sterile hand gloves. They are used not only to protect medical personnel from contamination by infectious agents but also to protect the surgical exposure site from sterility.

Disposable lab coats use in the laboratory

Aseptic production is strictly related to the survival of pharmaceutical companies, and whether the laboratory's sterility assurance is up to standard also has a profound impact.

The human body can be considered the largest source of contamination in a sterile laboratory, and the human sterile protective equipment is related to the success or failure of the cleanroom's sterility assurance. Cleanroom protective clothing can be divided into two categories according to whether it can be reused: disposable lab coats and repeatedly cleaned and used protective lab coats.

Today, many laboratories tend to choose reusable protective clothing. This is because reusable suits can be washed, dried, and sterilized several times and are considered more economical. This is not the optimal choice in terms of either cost or result. The reasons are as follows.

A. Repetitive protective clothing can cause contamination and consequent loss to the laboratory

For laboratories, process contamination can lead to significant losses in the drug production process. A contamination event in a sterile laboratory can have very serious consequences. Contamination can lead to costly downtime, increased production expenses, as well as product recalls, and potential risks to human life.

Reusable laboratory gowns are typically made of woven polyester blends, which can degrade after multiple washes and sterilization cycles. After an average of five washes, the bacterial barrier rate of these suits decreased by more than 25%. The results reveal the real but invisible contamination risks that reused suits pose to aseptic manufacturing environments.

B. The cost of reusing cleanroom protective clothing is much higher than the expected cost

The process of cleaning reusable cleanroom suits involves several steps, such as sorting, multiple washing, drying, cooling, and testing, each of which can compromise the quality of the suit if not handled properly. This process needs to be repeated every time the suit is used. Therefore, each step in the cleaning process itself poses a risk of bacterial contamination and consumes a lot of money.

Material degradation from repeated use of protective clothing is significant at the sub-micron level, which is sufficient to allow bacteria to penetrate the clothing and cause contamination. The quality of the suit degrades more rapidly than predicted, and as the number of washes increases, the effectiveness of the suit decreases further. The cost of reusing cleanroom suits is much higher than expected. The number of cleanroom suits that can withstand repeated use is much lower than predicted

Advantages of disposable lab coats

a. Predictability. Disposable lab coats are washed once to ensure the optimal and predictable performance of new suits.

b. Data transparency. All data on the lab coat is accurate and clear.

c. Easy to put on. Unlike reusable protective clothing, some disposable lab coats have innovative design features that prevent the protective clothing from touching the floor during wear, which can effectively prevent contamination.

d. Highly comfortable. Protective clothing made of SMS is not only comfortable but also breathable.

e. Consistent performance. Disposable lab coats provide consistently excellent performance and ensure the highest level of sterility.

f. Vacuum-sealed packaging. This practice provides better assurance of a sterile environment.

Securing a sterile environment is an important aspect of sterile laboratory management that cannot be ignored. When selecting the right protective clothing for aseptic production environments, it is important to choose disposable lab coats with the highest bacterial barrier rate. Purchasing personnel should use the data from various research studies as a reference to select scientifically effective disposable sterile protective clothing for the laboratory.

ANTITECK disposable lab coats support aseptic dressing and reduce the risk of contamination, effectively blocking dust particles and bacteria from penetrating and isolating human contamination. With the correct wearing process, the protective clothing will give full play to the aseptic protection effect.
