Lab Coat Rental Program

The Office of Laboratory and Field Safety, in cooperation with the Laboratory Safety Committee, offers a lab coat program for lab workers at CMU.  Cintas provides the lab coats and laundering services. 

  • Each user will be issued a set of three matching coats, so researchers will always have a clean lab coat to wear.
  • Cintas will pick up lab coats on a weekly basis for laundering, returning the cleaned coat the following week.
  • Cintas will track the number of washes and the conditions of the lab coats, replacing coats with new ones when prescribed. 
  • A variety of lab coat materials are available to suit diverse laboratory environments. Lab workers can choose from 100% cotton, 80/20 polyester/cotton blend, liquid barrier, fire resistant, and fire resistant/chemical protectant coats. See the program overview below or contact OLFS to learn more about selecting the right lab coat.
If you are a researcher at CMU and would like to enroll in the lab coat program, please email Joe Wernet for more information.
