Antimicrobial copper offers a new approach to infection control – and makes a material difference to well-being and finance. Completely safe to humans, copper is very effective against bacteria, viruses, yeasts and fungi.
There is abundant evidence that touch surfaces play a significant role in the spread of infection, and that copper is an effective and appropriate self-disinfecting material for touch surface items.
The cost-effectiveness of copper, researched by York Health Economics Consortium, is staggering: payback in under 2 months for a 20 bed ICU in the UK, plus significant long-term savings and freed-up beds.
CopaCu+re represents a new way of thinking: employing an engineering material with intrinsic antimicrobial properties to help protect public health.
Fixtures, fittings and other CopaCu+re touch surfaces made from antimicrobial copper continuously kill pathogenic microbes, between touches and between cleans, helping to break the chain of infection and providing an additional weapon in the fight against healthcare-associated infections.
Fellows offer a wide range of items in antimicrobial copper, available under the CopaCu+re brand. These products are made and marketed in accordance with the Cu+ stewardship scheme managed by the Copper Development Association and International Copper Alliance.
Please note: healthcare infections are a multifaceted issue; antimicrobial copper is a supplement to, not a substitute for, hand hygiene and cleaning.
