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:

  • E-coli
  • Legionella
  • 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.
