"We congratulate PurThread for their outstanding work and their commitment to innovation," said Shawn Osborne, the TechAmerica Foundation Chairman. "They were outstanding in their category, which included tremendous innovations. We thank them for their contribution to the growth and innovation of our vibrant industry."
PurThread's category win singled out excellence in a product or service dedicated to the integration of technology in the manufacturing process. It is particularly focused on the rapid transfer of science and technology into manufacturing products and processes. PurThread's innovative process embeds antimicrobial properties into raw textile materials, before the fabric material is spun into yarn and woven into textiles. This ensures the effects of the PurThread active ingredient will not wash off or wear out over time. Currently, PurThread develops scrubs, lab coats, privacy curtains and linens with antimicrobial properties, as well as base layers and polo shirts.
"We're thrilled to have our antimicrobial technology recognized with this American Technology Award," said Bill O'Neill, PurThread VP of Infection Control Applications. "While our technology protects fabrics from bacteria and other organisms, our goal is always to develop products that improve the patient environment. This award affirms that PurThread is on the right track. "
The winners were announced last Thursday at the Technology and Government gala dinner at the Ronald Reagan Building inWashington D.C. Hundreds of industry and government leaders attended this premier technology networking event.
PurThread Technologies an emerging leader in antimicrobial textile technology and scientific research, is dedicated to developing continuously active soft surfaces that show a measurable difference in reducing bioburden in clinical environments. PurThread products range from healthcare textiles, such as privacy curtains, sheets, scrubs, blankets, and lab coats, to an array of freshness products for other markets such as the military, emergency first responders and performance athletic wear.
