Many healthcare professionals require a lab coat, from consultants, medical scientists and technicians, to GPs, pharmacists and vets. The white lab coat was not always synonymous with the medical profession. It was first adopted by scientists. It was only in the late 19th Century, when new discoveries and breakthroughs in medicine showed the importance of cleanliness in preventing disease that the medical profession turned to the white lab coat as a symbol of sterility and cleanliness.

The Finishing Touch
To add the perfect touch, don’t forget that you can add embroidery to your lab coats to create the perfect look for you or your team. We can add a name and/or department and can facilitate most logos too! For details of our embroidery service and how to add embroidery to your order, you can take a look at the details of our embroidery service.
Oh and one last thing! Studies have shown that lab coats can harbour bugs, so always make sure to wash yours at least every week, and more often if it gets dirty!
