Have you been lost in the sea of lab coats? There are literally hundreds of different kinds of lab coats out there. There are different lengths, different cuts, different features, even different colors. Here are a few guiding steps to help you find your perfect match!
1.) Know the guidelines from your employer. In many places there are rules on what kind of lab coat is allowed at work. Make sure you know these rules when you are searching for your next lab coat.
2.) Do you work with microorganisms? If so, go with an antimicrobial lab coat which helps protect your lab coat from the growth and multiplication of a broad spectrum of microorganisms.
3.) Pay attention to the fabric mix. If you want a softer and heavier lab coat, pick a mix that has a smaller ratio of polyester to cotton (the average tends to be around 80% Polyester and 20% Cotton).
4.) Pick something you like the look of. With a variety of different buttons, white dyes, etc., you will be sure to find something that catches your eye and will look great on you!
