*All antimicrobial copper products are made from CuVerro® Antimicrobial Copper.
The EPA requires the following statement to be included when making public health claims related to the use of CuVerro® Antimicrobial Copper Alloys:
Testing demonstrates effective antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter aerogenes, Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Escherichia coli O157:H7, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
The use of a CuVerro® Antimicrobial Copper is a supplement to and not a sustitute for standard infection control practices; users must continue to follow all current infection control practices, including those practices related to cleaning and disinfection of environmental surfaces. These surfaces have been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but do not necessarily prevent cross-contamination.
