Men’s and Women’s Lab Coat Pioneer to Exhibit at AAPA Annual Conference and AAPA Store

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., May 19, 2010 -- Medelita®, maker of breakthrough performance men’s and women’s lab coats, is pleased to announce that it is participating in the AAPA Annual Conference in Atlanta, May 29 – June 3, 2010. The AAPA is the only national organization representing PAs across all medical and surgical specialties in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, the armed forces and the federal system. Medelita will be part of the AAPA Store display, at the center of the exhibit hall. In addition, Medelita will offer free shipping, free name and title embroidery, and free AAPA logo option to attendees who purchase scrubs or lab coats at the conference or online. “As a certified PA and proud member of the AAPA, I couldn’t be more pleased about our company’s participation in this year’s annual conference and AAPA store,” said Lara Manchik, PA-C and founder of Medelita. “We founded Medelita on the principle that today’s medical professional deserves better than the antiquated and ill-fitting unisex garments that were once the norm. I’m thrilled to be able to outfit my true colleagues in our high-quality, high-performance lab coats and scrubs that are preferred by clinicians.” Medelita lab coats are hand-sewn in the U.S. using the highest quality fabrics, most advanced fabric treatments and feature designer touches such as inside seam finishing and contoured shaping for exceptional fit and comfort. Engineered for easy care, Medelita lab coats and scrubs can be machine washed and emerge from the dryer with a crisp, clean and professional look. Professional dry cleaning can be used, though is not required. Made from 100 percent high denier cotton and designed specifically with a focus on fit and functionality, Medelita’s fluid resistant lab coats are treated with Advanced Dual Action Teflon® fabric protector, which allows fabric to repel and release stains. Tailored to fit the contours of the human body, Medelita lab coats feature hidden inside pockets and finished inside seams. 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 lab coats. Lab coats are available in ladies sizes (0-16) and men’s sizes (36-52). Medelita clinician scrubs boast equally meticulous attention to detail in design, fabric selection, and manufacturing. Designed to shatter the paradigm of the boxy, shapeless unisex scrubs, Medelita scrub tops are tailored to fit the human body while its scrub pants feature combined drawstring and elastic waistband for added comfort and security. Drirelease® with FreshGuard® fabric in Medelita scrubs resists pilling and fading while the moisture wicking and bacteriostatic fabric lends odor-free comfort. Women’s scrubs come in six colors and men’s scrubs come in navy and black. Men’s scrub tops and pants are available in sizes S-XXL and women’s scrub pants are available in sizes 00P – 14P, 0 – 16 regular, and 0T – 16T. Women’s scrub tops are standard 0 – 16 sizes. Available for purchase through its website and at medical conferences, Medelita lab coats and scrubs can be embroidered using fade-resistant thread with clinician name, credentials and hospital, practice or group custom logo. Gift certificates are also available for order on the company’s website. Members of AAPA can shop for Medelita online at www.medelita.com/aapa-members.html.
