Tired of walking around in the same boring scrubs that everyone else wears? Starting to feel a bit like an automaton? Well, Patho Phizz, a small Nevada company started by a critical care nurse, is putting a bit of fashion into the everyday. They are using actual micrographs of pathogens to create fabric patterns for scrubs. On right you see Clostridium botulinum turned into a perfectly attractive scrub. The company also has Candida and E.coli scrubs. The other Clostridium, the pungently memorable C. diff is unfortunately not yet on the list.
Explanation for the inspiration:
Remember back in Microbiology 101, peering at bacteria, fungi, and histology slides under a microscope? Did it occur to you: “Eureka: I’ll devote my life to creating fabric patterns based on these sublime entities, and manufacture the world’s most unique scrubs with this cloth!?” It did to our Senior Research Staph at Patho Phizz. Since that fateful moment, we have dedicated our waking hours to coaxing from the microbial and pathological world the hippest, the sickest, the jaw-droppingly-most unique & original scrub tops humanity has ever beheld.
