Antimicrobial CuVerroŽ Copper Alloy

Kill Bacteria* that cause some Hospital Acquired Infections

with CuVerro® antimicrobial copper alloy surfaces

 

Increased use of electronic medical records has created a need for more multi-use keyboards in every healthcare facility. Standard office keyboards used in patients rooms and ICUs can become reservoirs for bacterial growth because they are very difficult to disinfect without destroying the circuitry inside the keyboard. Our new Copper Alloy Keyboard can be cleaned or washed down without harm to the keyboard and have the added benefit of continuously killing bacteria* between cleanings.

 

 

 

 

 

* Laboratory testing shows that, when cleaned regularly, CuVerro surfaces kill greater than 99.9% of the following bacteria within 2 hours of exposure: Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus aureus, Entrerobacter aerogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, E. coli O157:H7 and, Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus faecalis (VRE). The use of CuVerro® antimicrobial copper products is a supplement to and not a substitute for standard infection control practices; users must continue to follow all current infection control practices, including those practices related to cleaning and disinfection of environmental surfaces. This surface has been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but it does not necessarily prevent cross contamination.
