Vestagen is a Medical Technology Company

Vestagen Protective Technologies, Inc. is a medical technology company founded in 2009 to develop and market high performance textiles for healthcare and other demanding applications. Vestagen’s VESTEX® Active Barrier1 fabric is a unique combination of technologies designed to address the major unmet need for continuous-wear, comfortable garments for healthcare workers and their patients by minimizing the risks associated with unanticipated fluid exposures during routine use as a general purpose attire.

VESTEX apparel has received 510(k) clearance as a Class II medical device from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). VESTEX healthcare uniforms are the first daily- wear scrubs to receive a Class II medical device designation from the FDA. This makes VESTEX the defining product of a new FDA product category created to address the unique performance properties demonstrated by VESTEX Active Barrier1 garments.


1 Active Barrier apparel is designed as a replacement for traditional, every-day hospital attire and is designed to help repel splatter and spills of fluids and other material on the fabric. The fabric also contains an antimicrobial substance shown in laboratory and hospital settings to inhibit certain tested bacteria from growing on the fabric under the conditions of the tests. Neither liquid repellency nor antimicrobial tests are intended to assess the active barrier apparel’s ability to meet personal protective equipment requirements. The ability of the fabric to reduce exposure or infections has not been studied.
