The copper alloy surface material has been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but it does not necessarily prevent cross-contamination. The use of a copper alloy surface is a supplement to and not a substitute for standard infection control practices; users must follow all current infection control practices, including those practices related to cleaning and disinfection of environmental surfaces.
Antimicrobial Copper alloys are solid, non-porous, and completely recyclable metals that can be bent, formed, stamped, joined, cut and fastened to create durable products such as I.V. poles, countertops, grab rails, and other touch surface applications. No other solid, touch surface materials have obtained this type of registration to date.
Just compare the cost of installing Antimicrobial copper to the cost of treating infections. UK Study determines that installing Antimicrobial copper touch surfaces in a 20 bed ward cost the equivalent of treating 1.5 healthcare associated infections.
