Dr. Cu Antimicrobial Copper Film

International-Copper-Association-logo

Tested in South Korea, Dr. Cu Antimicrobial Copper Film got the certification Cu+ (Antimicrobial Copper) provided by the International Copper Association (ICA) together with certifications from the Environmental Protection Agency of USA.

Dr. Cu provides a Transparent adhesive Antimicrobial Copper Film, ready to be self-applied out of the box, on every high-touch surface such as: elevators buttons, entrance doors knobs, pads, phones, POS terminals, touch screens, and many more, helping prevent cross infections.

Several studies around the globe over many years develop that:

Coronavirus 229E lasts only from 30 min. to 4 hours on a copper surface, compared to up to 4 days in Stainless Steel, Plastics, Glass or Ceramic surfaces.

Applying Antimicrobial Copper on high-touch surface products, lower total bacterial burden compared with stainless steel, chromed, plastic or wooden reference surfaces. Regardless of varying usage profiles and cleaning procedures.

In real life environments, copper was found to be efficient in reducing the total bacterial load after multiple cleaning cycles as well as more infrequent cleaning (up to 7 days) practices prior to sampling.

The efficiency of copper as an antimicrobial material has been noted in laboratory studies and in the hospital environment. The study shows that copper exerted an antibacterial effect in different facilities, i.e. in a hospital, a kindergarten, an office building and in a retirement home for the elderly.

The studies suggests that copper has potential use as an antibacterial material and therefore might serve as a means to lower the incidence of transmission of infectious agents from inanimate surfaces in different facilities, with everyday functions.

Copper alloys can significantly decrease the burden harbored on high-touch surfaces, and thus warrant inclusion in an integrated infection control strategy.

Hospitals discover the benefits of installing antimicrobial copper components

According to the Center for Disease Control and Infection, on average, healthcare providers wash their hands less than half of the times they should. That would make Bioburden rapidly rebound on surfaces in the time between cleanings. 
Antimicrobial copper alloy surfaces can help address these gaps and enhance infection-prevention programs through a systems-based approach.

High-touched surfaces enable the spread of infectious pathogens throughout healthcare facilities which contributes to the acquisition of hospital acquired infections

Hand washing and routine disinfection of surfaces are the first line of defense.  However, these conventional tools fall short because they depend on human behavior wich makes them intermittent
