Healthcare associated infections are a critical problem in hospitals and other healthcare delivery institutions. On any given day, one out of every 25 hospital patients gets a HAI that, at best, raise the patient’ healthcare costs and, at worst, can cause death to affected patients. The Evermoin antimicrobial technology can help fight HAIs.
Featuring a fast-acting protection against the spread of pathogens and fungal growth, the Evermoin technology has been tested to inhibit 99.9+ (3 log+) growth rate of positive and negative pathogens including Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli.
Possible medical applications include medical housings, equipment and accessories.
While the Evermoin technology is an effective HAI fighter in the healthcare industry, it can also be used in non-medical applications to protect against bacterial and fungal growth in applications where cleanliness and safety are important. These include cosmetics, electrical and electronics, appliances, and kitchenware. It features excellent weatherability and UV resistance for applications where out-door exposure may be a factor.
The Evermoin technology is non-toxic and is compliant with ISO 10993-5 and ISO 10993-10 standards. In addition it has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and has also been approved for environmental compatibility by the Environmental Protection Agency.
