Public spaces like hospitals, airports and schools pose definite challenges for control of bacteria like MRSA and E. coli. While public service campaigns and protocols for hand washing are helpful, you can help fight infection and give your battle against bacteria* a lift with MD-Cu29 antimicrobial copper surfaces.
In laboratory testing, antimicrobial copper surfaces are proven to continuously kill more than 99.9% of bacteria*, including MRSA and E. coli. It’s powerful protection, and one that keeps working even after repeated contaminations1.
Wash them. Scour them. Touch them again and again. When regularly cleaned, MD-Cu29 antimicrobial copper surfaces continue to fight infection-causing bacteria* day after day, year after year. In fact, MD-Cu29 antimicrobial copper helps inhibit the buildup and growth of bacteria within 2 hours of exposure between routine cleanings1. That’s part of the reason why copper has been used in medical treatments and home remedies since antiquity.
In fact, Hussey Copper was founded by a man named Dr. Hussey in 1848. Though Dr. Hussey practiced medicine on the American frontier before scientific testing proved the antimicrobial properties of copper, doctors and healers have been recorded using copper in medicine dating back to the Greek physician Hippocrates. Today, 98% of American medical students take the Hippocratic oath before they become physicians. It’s no wonder that, more than 165 years since its founding, Hussey Copper continues Dr. C. G. Hussey’s legacy by producing MD-Cu29 antimicrobial copper products.
MD-Cu29 is an antimicrobial copper touch surface registered by the EPA. It’s also inherently antimicrobial. That’s part of the reason why some of the world’s busiest places use MD-Cu29 antimicrobial copper for their touch surfaces.
