With the alEx Linen Center, authorized staff gain access to linen they need by using their hospital ID. alEx automatically opens for authorized personnel, supplying hygienically clean linen. As linen is removed, users and linen management receive instant feedback through the clearView®️ linen management software. alEx automatically closes, keeping linen secure and protected from contamination while driving down processing and replacement costs.

Our secure, advanced machines provide authorized staff with clean scrubs in less than 5 seconds. The linen management staff gain real-time insight into dispenser/receiver fill percentages and receive instant alerts when inventory reaches a pre-determined threshold. While driving efficiency and staff satisfaction, scrubEx® also complies with AORN’s Guidelines for Perioperative Practice, helping to better prevent and control the risk of infection.

Designed to drive vendor compliance and reduce costs, vendEx®️ provides authorized vendors with clean scrubs from a secure scrub dispensing machine. Infection prevention is supported by ensuring vendors are not wearing scrubs from outside a facility into a hospital. It also ensures authorized vendors return soiled scrubs before leaving a hospital or healthcare facility.
