Antimicrobial first aid
07 March 2013
Safety First Aid has launched an antimicrobial range of first aid cases.The Evolution Antimicrobial range is suitable for settings where it is essential that hygiene standards are maintained to the highest level, such as medical and catering environments. The antimicrobial properties of the cases also make them suitable for helping to reduce the spread of bacteria in schools and workplaces.
The Evolution Antimicrobial properties are achieved by adding the compound SteriTouch to the plastic during the manufacture process.The SteriTouch additive is effective in killing a wide range of organisms including bacteria such as MRSA, E-Coli, Salmonella Enteritidis and Listeria by utilising the natural sterilising properties of silver.The effectiveness has been independently tested and has EFSA, EPA and FDA registration as well as being notified on the European Biocidal Products Directive. Evolution Antimicrobial cases are available in three sizes.
