Controlling Infection

Customers have the option of incorporating BioCote® infection control in their folders. BioCote® antimicrobial technology is independently proven to be effective against a wide range of microbes including MRSA and E-coli.

BioCote® Antimicrobial Protection

BioCote’s silver technology is manufactured into the surface of products, giving them built-in antimicrobial protection. On a Biocote protected surface, the levels of bacteria, mould and fungi are reduced by up to 99.9%, over a 24-hour period. With less bacteria in an environment, the risk of cross-contamination reduces, helping to prevent infection and potential illness.

BioCote ® antimicrobial protection is tested by an independent laboratory and is effective against a broad spectrum of microbes, including:

  • Pseudomonas
  • Salmonella
  • Listeria
  • Campylobacter
  • S. aureus
  • Aspergillus niger

Silver Technology

Silver, in the form of silver ions, is the active ingredient utilised in BioCote®. Silver is a natural antimicrobial and has been used for centuries for its abilities to aid preservation. Silver technology is also used extensively in the healthcare sector, for example in silver-coated wound dressings and catheters with dramatic reductions in infections.

BioCote’s silver technology has been tested by an independent laboratory to show its ability to inhibit the growth of bacteria, mould and fungi by up to 99.9% over a 24 hour period.
