Antimicrobial Copper Site | - Welcome to the UK Antimicrobial Copper site: the non-commercial portal for information on the hygienic properties and applications of copper.

  • http://www.antimicrobialcopper.org/uk/introduction-to-antimicrobial-copper Introduction to Antimicrobial Copper | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Antimicrobial Copper kills the microbes that cause healthcare associated infections.
  • http://www.antimicrobialcopper.org/uk/application-antimicrobial-touch-surfaces Antimicrobial Touch Surfaces | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Making touch surfaces actively and continuously kill microbes that cause infections.
  • http://www.antimicrobialcopper.org/uk/patient-safety Patient Safety | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Estimates show that, in developed countries, as many as one in 10 patients is harmed while receiving hospital care. In these countries, seven out of every hundred hospitalised patients at any given time will acquire healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs). In developing countries, the number is even higher, with ten out of every hundred patients developing an HCAI.
  • http://www.antimicrobialcopper.org/uk/a-helping-hand-from-copper A Helping Hand from Antimicrobial Copper | Antimicrobial Copper Site - What is antimicrobial copper?
 ​Germs die rapidly on copper and many copper alloys, preventing them from being picked up on someone’s hand and potentially spreading an infection. These hygienic materials are called ‘antimicrobial copper’.
  • http://www.antimicrobialcopper.org/uk/antimicrobial-resistance Antimicrobial Resistance | Antimicrobial Copper Site - 
 Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) threatens the effective prevention and treatment of an ever-increasing range of infections caused by bacteria, parasites, viruses and fungi. Of these, antibiotic-resistant bacteria have the most serious implications for health.
  • http://www.antimicrobialcopper.org/uk/the-business-case The Business Case | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Upgrading key touch surfaces in healthcare facilities can yield payback of less than one year, according to the York Health Economics Consortium model.
  • http://www.antimicrobialcopper.org/uk/about-the-brand About the Brand | Antimicrobial Copper Site - The Antimicrobial Copper mark is used by leading manufacturers to indicate that their products contain Antimicrobial Copper, the world's most effective antimicrobial touch surface material.
  • http://www.antimicrobialcopper.org/uk/antimicrobial-copper-range Antimicrobial Copper Range | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Antimicrobial Copper surfaces offer a spectrum of colours, forms and finishes.
  • http://www.antimicrobialcopper.org/uk/physical-properties-and-characteristics Physical Properties and Characteristics | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Antimicrobial Copper is a host of copper alloys that can be formed into durable, easy-to-clean, affordable touch surfaces available in a variety of colours and finish options.
  • http://www.antimicrobialcopper.org/uk/proper-use-and-care Proper Use and Care | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Antimicrobial Copper provides a second line of defence against harmful microbes, but must be cared for in order to work effectively.
  • http://www.antimicrobialcopper.org/uk/antimicrobial-efficacy Antimicrobial Efficacy | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Antimicrobial Copper is the most effective touch surface material, killing greater than 99.9% of bacteria within 2 hours of exposure.
  • http://www.antimicrobialcopper.org/uk/how-it-works How it Works | Antimicrobial Copper Site - The mechanisms by which solid copper damages and destroys bacteria and viruses is still being studied but sufficient work has been done to confirm the broad spectrum efficacy of the metal and its alloys such as brass and bronze. Importantly, even under the dry-touch conditions of a typical indoor environment, copper is able to permanently inactivate pathogens. By interacting with the cell structure, copper initiates a series of cascading events, including rapidly interrupting normal functions and compromising cell membrane integrity.
  • http://www.antimicrobialcopper.org/uk/efficacy-tests-and-standards Efficacy Tests and Standards | Antimicrobial Copper Site - As the understanding of antimicrobial materials has improved, regulators and working groups such as the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) have recognised that there are no standardized methods for the determination of efficacy under conditions typical of the environment under which a material is expected to be employed. This is especially the case with regard to indoor surfaces and touch points.
  • http://www.antimicrobialcopper.org/uk/epa-tests-and-registration EPA Tests and Registration | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Extensive laboratory testing has proven that Antimicrobial Copper continuously kills pathogenic microbes, never wears out and is safe to use.
  • http://www.antimicrobialcopper.org/uk/clinical-trials Clinical Trials | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Clinical trials investigating Antimicrobial Copper’s potential to help fight infections that cause Healthcare-Associated Infections are under way around the world
  • http://www.antimicrobialcopper.org/uk/ebola-virus-control Ebola Virus Control | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Proven infection control measures are needed to prevent the spread of the Ebola virus. Antimicrobial copper surfaces can help.

  • Bubble Baggins - DON'T BOTHER!

    I purchased 2 of these chargers as I go through my AAA, AA, D & 9V rechargeables very quickly & need to keep fully charged cells (batteries) handy at all times.

  • Gadget - FIFA World Cup 2010 - All over again.

    I am a big World Cup fan. The thrill of your country or any other country I'm rooting for, seeing them play is just awesome.

  • Basia - Highly recommended!

    Wow! What a GORGEOUS premise: Every 12 years, the people of this society lose all their memories. The lucky ones have the books in which they'd noted down all the daily happenings of their lives before The Forgetting. For some, there is truth in the books. For many, the truth is likely tainted, to make the person they reconstruct from the books' entries someone a little better, kinder, more good. Then there are those who come to without any books to be found. These people are cursed to live on without any memories at all.

  • B. MaGill - A must needed product

    I use the 3M Scotchgard fabric cleaner and believe me you should use the Fabric Protector after each cleaning wheather it's spot cleaning or a complete cleaning of your fabric furniture.
