Copper exerts 'halo' antimicrobial effect

August 18, 2016

Very exciting study

 

Results from a clinical trial of antimicrobial copper touch surfaces in a neonatal intensive care unit at  a Greek hospital have shown that, in addition to contamination being 90 per cent lower on the copper surfaces, they also exert a halo effect whereby non-copper surfaces up to 19 inches away exhibited a reduction in contamination of more than 70 per cent.
