Lab Coats, Laundry and Linen Rentals

UniFirstUniFirst is Emory's preferred contract for Lab Coats, Laundry and Linen Rental Services.   (Read Announcement) If you wish to have another supplier considered for this service, you must submit an Emory Express Requisition using the non-catalog Item form.  The procurement department will review your request and inform you as to whether or not the supplier may be utilized. Payment for this service cannot be processed using the Check Request Form in Emory Express.

NoteService is for Lab Coats only and NOT Physician Coats 

This service is primarily for lab coats, not physician coats. If you are a physician and your coat is worn in patient interaction, please contact Emory Healthcare to have your coat cleaned.

For coats made of 100% cotton or containing embroidery, this process will lead to wrinkled and/or faded coats. Choosing to use this service for these coats will be at your own risk. If your lab coat is free of biohazardous contamination, you may chose to have your coats dry cleaned at a local business and pay with your P-card.
