Launched on February 4th, 2013, Under Scrub garments are now available for purchase through Amazon.com. Under Scrub garments are technical long and short-sleeve base layers that reduce the bacteria that cause infections.

"We are excited to be a part of Amazon.com," states Kim Zeytoonjian, CMO of Under Scrub, a division of Silver Lining Textiles. "This is a great opportunity for us to be involved with a multi-national electronic commerce company. Amazon attracts over 180,000,000 users a year. To be able to get a revolutionary product like ours out to such a large market is very exciting."
The silver ion, anti-microbial technology used in Under Scrub garments has proven to rapidly reduce pathogens like MRSA in a matter of minutes. "To distribute this technology through the Amazon.com portal and reach such an expansive customer base is monumental," states Jason Katsapetses, Founder & CEO of Silver Lining Textiles and the Under Scrub brand. "Imagine the impact we will have and the people we will help."
Infection protection happens on many levels, whether in a community or hospital setting. The Under Scrub brand is giving people an option that does not require any active participation. It is a simpler way, along with hand washing and general awareness, to create a cleaner environment for patient care and healthcare delivery.
