Medelita Offers New Caribbean Blue Medical Scrubs

Medelita®, maker of breakthrough performance medical scrubs and lab coats for both men and women, is excited to announce a new color option for their popular medical scrubs. Just in time for summer, Medelita is calling to mind tropical beaches and warm sunny days with the introduction of Caribbean Blue clinician scrubs for women and scrubs for men. Flattering on all skin tones, this modern and professional color is a statement of quality and achievement with name and title embroidery in the clinician scrubs teal option or men’s scrubs cocoa option. Caribbean Blue scrubs will be available for pre-order on July 1st with shipping commencing on July 15th.

The vast majority of scrubs on the market today are boxy, ill-fitting, and un-flattering. These shapeless, unisex uniforms fail to portray the level of

professionalism of those working in healthcare and dentistry. As an Emergency Medicine Physician Assistant, Medelita Founder Lara Manchik, PA-C found herself constantly frustrated by uncomfortable fabrics, horrendous fits, and frumpy silhouettes. By founding Medelita, she set out to create a paradigm shift and offer high quality lab coats and scrubs consistent with the level of prestige and achievement earned by doctors, surgeons, dentists, PAs and other medical professionals.

Unlike most companies, Medelita offers different styles and colors in medical scrubs designed specifically for men or women. With Medelita, medical professionals are no longer forced to wear the bulky and uncomfortable unisex medical scrubs that became prevalent during the last five decades. Featuring ergonomic design features, Medelita scrubs allow professionals a wide range of motion and comfort.

In addition to looking good and feeling comfortable, Medelita medical scrubs are also designed to be both functional and durable. Medelita scrubs are made with a special performance drirelease® fabric with FreshGuard® – making them moisture-wicking, quick drying, and odor-resistant. Drirelease® fabric pulls moisture away from the skin and help to regulate skin temperature, minimizing sweat and discomfort. FreshGuard® is bacteriostatic; it neutralizes and inhibits the growth of bacterial odors – virtually eliminating odor from the uniform.

Logos embroidered on lab coats and medical tops demonstrate pride and accomplishment to colleagues and patients alike. Medelita often refers to embroidery as, “the closest thing to wearing a diploma”.

As per request by existing customers, the company has added several professional logos to their existing list which include: the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS), the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), the American Association of Endodontists (AAE), the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), the American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS), the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA), the American College of Physicians (ACP), the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), Dental Caduceus, Veterinary Caduceus, American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA), the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), the society of Dermatology Physician Assistants (SDPA), and Texas Nurse Practitioners (TNP).

Many of the above professional organizations contacted Medelita directly to submit their logos. The organizations recognize a synergy with the quality and professional image that Medelita put forth, and thus selected the company as their preferred vendor for lab coats and scrubs. Medelita is honored to provide such services as well to offer a vast number of professional organization embroidery options.

Medelita, a leader in online scrubs and lab coats, is honored to have affiliations with numerous professional organizations within the medical and dental industries, including the American Medical Women’s Association and the American Academy of Physician Assistants. Receiving approval to embroider such prestigious logos is indicative of the exceptional quality in craftsmanship and tremendous attention to detail, by Medelita.

Medelita founder, Lara Manchik, PA-C says, “We spend a tremendous amount of time and energy ensuring that every single inch of fabric, trim and finishing detail is perfect. But truly, when a new customer receives their first Medelita lab coat (or clinician scrubs), the very first thing they see is the embroidery. It is their mark of achievement, their symbol of dedication and professionalism that must be displayed with the utmost quality and attention to detail. That is our commitment to our customers and colleagues. We are excited to provide this additional service to our prestigious customer base.”

The embroidered logos are digitized in-house by the expert embroidery team at Medelita, and are stitched directly to the medical uniforms rather than being applied as a typical patch logo. For both custom logos and Professional Organization logos, Medelita embroidery exudes the very highest level of quality and professionalism while making a bold statement to patients and colleagues alike. Medelita often refers to their embroidery services as “the icing on the cake”, allowing medical professionals to display their titles and affiliations with pride and sophistication.

Customers Give Medelita Lab Coats and Scrubs Rave Reviews

Medelita®, maker of breakthrough medical scrubs and lab coats for female clinicians, was founded on the premise that quality medical apparel should be both beautiful in appearance and high in performance. At a time when unisex medical uniforms dominated the market, a woman’s only choice was to shop on price; today, that paradigm has changed and the value of a garment is defined by a high level of product and customer satisfaction, as reflected in accolades from loyal Medelita customers.

Medelita Lab Coats

“I received my new lab coat today and it is beautiful finally, a lab coat that doesn’t look like I’m wearing a big white bag and feel like sandpaper,” said Mary Beth H., PA-C, of Loma Linda, Calif. “The workmanship is so nice. It looks like it was custom made and fitted for me. The detailing gives it such a clean, superior look. Thank you for making a great product!

Considered to be utilitarian by some, the frumpy, unisex scrubs and lab coats provided by hospitals for female employees fail to deliver the confidence and composure that professional attire should convey. Medelita strives to meet the needs of women in healthcare.

“I saw the write up about your coats in the e-mail from AMWA,” according to Desiree C, physician from Dover, Mass. “I never thought about getting my own coats before (for over 30 years). I’ve always worn the thin, horrible ones the hospital provides. I’m looking forward to receiving yours.”

“I must commend Medelita for its outstanding commitment to serving health professionals, for having beautiful attire is an important component of delivering effective medical care,” said Linda S., a satisfied customer from Westbury, NY. I look forward to ordering more items from the company!”

Many companies touting designer lab coats overlook performance and functionality for the sake of appearance, but Medelita addresses both with high performance fabrics and feminine tailoring.

“I purchased a lab coat from [Medelita] at the CAPA conference this year. Just wanted to let you know that I LOVE IT! I get compliments all the time on how tailored and professional it looks, said Tiffany H., PA-C from Sacramento, Calif. “I’ve gotten blood on it more than once and it beautifully rolls right off. And I love that I can wash it, throw it in the dryer and it comes out looking like the day I bought it, stainless (and no ring around the collar which has been a problem with previous white coats over time), and without wrinkles. Thanks for making such a great product!”

For the first time ever, women in clinical settings are rewarded with fit, functionality and form in a product that is a staple in their wardrobe but that wears like a custom-made outfit.

“You can be assured I will be passing this along to friends, colleagues and family (mom and sis are also doctors!),” said Silddly A. MD from Doral, Fla. “This is exactly what we have all been waiting for! As you said, the lab coat is our ‘suit’, and it should look the best. The feminine but classic look is perfect.”

“I am SO happy with the scrubs. I wore them for the first part of the photo shoot, and I think they looked marvelous,” stated Margaret A., PA-C from Palo Alto, Calif., who won an award in her field. “The material is wonderful, and I never thought scrubs could be so flattering. I love the shape. I am so glad I bought the items. I’d been thinking about it, and then that award was the impetus for a treat. And a treat they are! Thank you so much for your excellent customer service.”

In addition to women working in healthcare, Medelita lab coats are worn and appreciated by those in academia and other laboratory settings, who need a garment that commands respect as effectively as it repels fluids.

“Let me just tell you how pleased I am with the coat. It is even nicer and better than I could have expected. The quality, durability, everything about it down to the embroidery is excellent,” remarked Ashley T., PhD in Toxicology from Raleigh, NC. “Frankly I just cannot put into words my happiness when I see how liquid and other materials that normally soak right through my old lab coats just seem to bounce off of your lab coats, it is so wonderful that I just cannot bring myself to put the old ones back on while my new one is being laundered!”

“I do love my Medelita scrubs,” said Ellen S., MPAS, PA-C from Houston, TX. “A patient spilt his pancake syrup on me the other day and I just went to the sink and it washed right off. It dried just as quick. Awesome!”

Women are seeking out Medelita’s practical and stylish solution to perfunctory unisex medical uniforms and are delighted to receive them as gifts, as described in this customer’s experience purchasing embroidered lab coats.

Made from 100 percent high-denier cotton, the Medelita lab coat is designed specifically for women with a focus on fit and function. The fluid resistant lab coats are treated with Advanced Dual Action Teflon® fabric protector, which allows fabric to repel and release stains. Tailored for a feminine shape, the coats feature traditional side slits, French finish inside seams and hidden inside pockets that are great for carrying handheld devices and mobile phones.

Established Ink Stain Remover Is A Must-Have For Clinical Professionals Wearing White Lab Coats

Medelita®, maker of breakthrough medical scrubs and lab coats for female clinicians, today announced the addition of the breakthrough stain remover Amodex® to its extensive line of products. Internationally known as one of the best products available for the removal of ink stains, Amodex can also be used in the removal of food stains, blood, and makeup from clothing, furniture and other household surfaces.

“Worn in hospitals and in clinical setting, white lab coats inherently get dirty and are subject to permanent damage, if stains cannot be removed. Ink stains are a common culprit as pens tend to leak in pockets and the dominant sleeve tends to pick up ink while a clinician writes,” said Lara Manchik, founder, Medelita. “Even with the most advanced fabrics and treatments, ink stains are still a problem. That’s why we are pleased to add Amodex Ink and Stain Remover to our line of products. After much research, we have found that Amodex is the best product to get pesky ink stains out of our lab coats.”

Amodex is an eco-friendly, non-toxic lanolin cream that was specially developed to remove ink stains from fabrics, skin and other surfaces. Amodex is the only liquid cream stain fighting formula that is not a solvent but instead a soap, which is non-corrosive and won’t harm skin or clothing. A versatile product, Amodex not only works wonders on ink, but also effectively removes stains that clinicians may run into on a daily basis such as blood, iodine, coffee, tea, chocolate, lipstick, or just about anything else that would leave a seemingly permanent stain.

Trusted by customers, Amodex is rated number one by a leading consumer magazine. Popular ink makers have lab tested and recommend Amodex for the removal of unwanted marks on fabrics and skin. Medelita has independently tested Amodex and found that it is the best product on the market for removing stains from its high performance lab coats and scrubs.

Made from 100 percent high-denier cotton, the Medelita lab coat is designed specifically for women with a focus on fit and function. The fluid resistant lab coats are treated with Advanced Dual Action Teflon® fabric protector, which allows fabric to repel and release stains. Tailored for a feminine shape, the coats feature traditional side slits, French finish inside seams and hidden inside pockets that are great for carrying handheld devices and mobile phones.

In addition to high quality lab coats, Medelita provides a line of performance women’s healthcare apparel, including clinician scrubs and nursing scrubs, which are available for purchase at www.medelita.com.

Returning visitor conversion rate is up 72.50 percent, from 7.82 percent to 13.49 percent. This significant increase reflects the strength of Medelita products in a marketplace that offers limited choices for quality lab coats and scrubs.

The company attributes the garments’ high value and performance to building a solid return clientele base and is receiving unsolicited testimonials about its products superiority, fast turnaround and courteous customer service.

Medelita’s innovative approach to medical apparel was born out of necessity when founder, Lara Manchik, emergency room PA turned entrepreneur, failed to find alternatives to the frumpy, unisex medical apparel made for the male figure and representative of a time when men dominated the field.

Made from 100 percent high-denier cotton, Medelita lab coats are designed specifically for women with a focus on fit and function. The fluid resistant lab coats are treated with Advanced Dual Action Teflon® fabric protector, which allows fabric to repel and release stains.

Medelita Ushers in a New Era of Performance Lab Coats and Scrubs

Innovative medical apparel features performance fabrics, pockets for smartphones and other modern medical tools

Medelita®, maker of breakthrough medical apparel for female clinicians, has developed a line of high performance lab coats and medical scrubs featuring performance fabrics, modernized fit, and features that align with current medical trends, for a new generation of healthcare professionals.

“The medical profession has evolved in many ways, including the use of technology to assist in the day-to-day activities of clinicians, and the stark white traditional lab coats have undergone some modernization as well,” said Lara Manchik, founder, Medelita LLC. “Our lab coats use the same high performance fabrics athletes wear, and maintain a crisp, authoritative appearance without sacrificing fit, comfort or durability. Physicians, dentists, veterinarians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants wear their lab coats, on average, 2000 to 3000 hours a year, so it’s critical that the garments are purposeful and functional.”

Like their predecessors, today’s medical professionals demand garments that stand up to the rigors of working in healthcare; however in a field that has been traditionally resistant to change, younger generations of clinicians are increasingly using technology, such as smartphones, to assist in their jobs: Pharmacology programs allow doctors and PAs to check for drug contraindications, lab result and imaging interpretation as well as standard protocols for symptoms.

Like these modern medical advances, Medelita’s innovative approach to medical apparel was born out of necessity when founder, Manchik, emergency room PA turned entrepreneur, failed to find alternatives to the frumpy, unisex medical apparel made for the male figure and representative of a time when men dominated the field.

Made from 100 percent high denier cotton, Medelita lab coats are designed specifically for women with a focus on fit and function. The fluid resistant lab coats are treated with Advanced Dual Action Teflon® fabric protector, which allows fabric to repel and release stains. Tailored for a feminine shape, the coats feature traditional side slits, French finish inside seams and hidden inside pockets that are great for carrying handheld devices and mobile phones.

The High IQ® Easycare Plus helps fabric resist wrinkling and retain a soft, smooth, clean appearance. Technologically innovative, durable and fashionable, Medelita sets a new standard in professional coats. Owners of Medelita lab coats and scrubs spend less time cleaning, reduce the use of environmental resources, and save money as they are not frequently replacing permanently stained coats.

In addition to high quality lab coats, Medelita provides a line of performance women’s healthcare apparel, including clinician scrubs and nursing scrubs, which are available for purchase at www.medelita.com.
