Antimicrobial Copper Site | - Welcome to the UK Antimicrobial Copper site: the non-commercial portal for information on the hygienic properties and applications of copper.

  • Introduction to Antimicrobial Copper | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Antimicrobial Copper kills the microbes that cause healthcare associated infections.
  • Antimicrobial Touch Surfaces | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Making touch surfaces actively and continuously kill microbes that cause infections.
  • Patient Safety | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Estimates show that, in developed countries, as many as one in 10 patients is harmed while receiving hospital care. In these countries, seven out of every hundred hospitalised patients at any given time will acquire healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs). In developing countries, the number is even higher, with ten out of every hundred patients developing an HCAI.
  • A Helping Hand from Antimicrobial Copper | Antimicrobial Copper Site - What is antimicrobial copper?
 ​Germs die rapidly on copper and many copper alloys, preventing them from being picked up on someone’s hand and potentially spreading an infection. These hygienic materials are called ‘antimicrobial copper’.
  • Antimicrobial Resistance | Antimicrobial Copper Site - 
 Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) threatens the effective prevention and treatment of an ever-increasing range of infections caused by bacteria, parasites, viruses and fungi. Of these, antibiotic-resistant bacteria have the most serious implications for health.
  • The Business Case | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Upgrading key touch surfaces in healthcare facilities can yield payback of less than one year, according to the York Health Economics Consortium model.
  • About the Brand | Antimicrobial Copper Site - The Antimicrobial Copper mark is used by leading manufacturers to indicate that their products contain Antimicrobial Copper, the world's most effective antimicrobial touch surface material.
  • Antimicrobial Copper Range | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Antimicrobial Copper surfaces offer a spectrum of colours, forms and finishes.
  • Physical Properties and Characteristics | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Antimicrobial Copper is a host of copper alloys that can be formed into durable, easy-to-clean, affordable touch surfaces available in a variety of colours and finish options.
  • Proper Use and Care | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Antimicrobial Copper provides a second line of defence against harmful microbes, but must be cared for in order to work effectively.
  • Antimicrobial Efficacy | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Antimicrobial Copper is the most effective touch surface material, killing greater than 99.9% of bacteria within 2 hours of exposure.
  • How it Works | Antimicrobial Copper Site - The mechanisms by which solid copper damages and destroys bacteria and viruses is still being studied but sufficient work has been done to confirm the broad spectrum efficacy of the metal and its alloys such as brass and bronze. Importantly, even under the dry-touch conditions of a typical indoor environment, copper is able to permanently inactivate pathogens. By interacting with the cell structure, copper initiates a series of cascading events, including rapidly interrupting normal functions and compromising cell membrane integrity.
  • Efficacy Tests and Standards | Antimicrobial Copper Site - As the understanding of antimicrobial materials has improved, regulators and working groups such as the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) have recognised that there are no standardized methods for the determination of efficacy under conditions typical of the environment under which a material is expected to be employed. This is especially the case with regard to indoor surfaces and touch points.
  • EPA Tests and Registration | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Extensive laboratory testing has proven that Antimicrobial Copper continuously kills pathogenic microbes, never wears out and is safe to use.
  • Clinical Trials | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Clinical trials investigating Antimicrobial Copper’s potential to help fight infections that cause Healthcare-Associated Infections are under way around the world
  • Ebola Virus Control | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Proven infection control measures are needed to prevent the spread of the Ebola virus. Antimicrobial copper surfaces can help.
  • Research Groups | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Use the filter drop downs to find researchers in your region/country. If you are engaged in research into the efficacy of solid copper and copper alloys and would like your research group to appear here, please contact Copper Development Association.
  • Scientific References | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Here is a library of published papers and conference posters covering the laboratory and clinical studies conducted on the antimicrobial characteristics of solid copper and copper alloys over the last 20 years.  Some papers are accessible here as pdfs, others have links to entries in various scientific libraries where full papers can be accessed via a subscription or for a cost.
  • Markets | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Wherever pathogens can survive on surfaces where people gather for medical treatment or even to work, shop or relax, there is a risk to health that can be reduced by the application of Antimicrobial Copper. With routine cleaning and disinfection, copper can provide an additional measure to keep pathogens at bay and reduce the risk of transmission.
  • Find Antimicrobial Copper Alloys | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Manufacturers and stockists around the world are offering a range of copper alloys across different product forms under the Antimicrobial Copper Cu+ brand to signify that they supply recognised Antimicrobial Copper alloys and comply with certain terms and conditions. is your first and best source to find an ever increasing range of Antimicrobial Copper semi-finished products and the partners that provide them. Searches can be restricted by your location (for regulatory jurisdictions) and product form.
  • Find Antimicrobial Copper Products | Antimicrobial Copper Site - Copper is a powerful antimicrobial with rapid, broad-spectrum efficacy against bacteria and viruses. It shares this efficacy with over 500 copper alloys, forming a family of materials called Antimicrobial Copper. Touch surfaces made from Antimicrobial Copper continuously reduce bioburden, 24/7, creating a more hygienic environment and reducing the risk of infections spreading.
  • Find Antimicrobial Copper Services | Antimicrobial Copper Site - is your first and best source to find an ever increasing range of Antimicrobial Copper related services and the partners that provide them. Searches can be restricted by location (for regulatory jurisdiction), type of industry that is catered for, and type of service.

  • Zelideth - excelent product

    It is what I expected, very useful product for small proyects, very light. It arrived in good conditions. Very happy for it.

  • AddisonsMommy - I am pretty disappointed, as mine arrived with the battery cover ...

    I am pretty disappointed, as mine arrived with the battery cover off and broken, I cannot get it to stay on. Also there is no lens cover and I'm questioning if I even received a new thermometer or not...

  • LOne traveller - Great product which works out of the box!!

    Thera breath is the most wonderful mouthwash(not the normal alcoholic one) i have ever used in my life. Like other mouthwashes it doesnt contain alcohol, so no more burning sensation in the mouth. It tastes more or less like water with a mild mint flavor. People complained they lose taste after using this mouthwash. But i have no issues so far. It works like a charm and stops your bad breath forever by not masking the bad breath, rather reduces the sulphur components by its oxygenating formula. I dont know how it stops bad breath instantly. Thanks to the oxygenation process rather than the masking of bad breath. Only a small amount of therabreath is needed for a single rinse, so the two bottles will last more than 2 months atleast for me as i use it only once a day. I think a single dose of rinse per day is enough for average bad breathers (like me!). All i can say is that its a most value for money product. Thank you Thera Breath.

  • DCist - The plastic loop broke within two days

    I invested in two Wallet TrackRs on and eagerly put them to use as soon as they arrived - one on my key ring, one on my spouse's. Unfortunately, the plastic hole through which you attach the TrackR to your keyring broke through within two days on BOTH of the TrackRs - so, we now have no way to attach them to our key rings. The technology might be great, but the design is careless.

  • Luvs Spin - Feeling Better Already!

    Taking Liver Support along with 2 additional 1 Body Supplements - Thyroid and Adrenal Support. I was lacking energy and zest. After two weeks - feeling energized with an overall sense of well being.

  • NappiiRoots - Inconsistent. When it's good, it's great. When it's bad, it's useless.

    I wanted to love these so badly. I wanted so badly to add another five star review, but I can't. They just aren't consistent. I ordered these because of the overwhelming praise they have received in the reviews. My expectations were set and they were fairly high--not too high though. I mean they are only $30. The issue I have been having is that people often tell me that they can't understand me and I sound like a robot or a they hear a weird mechanical sound when I use them as a hands free microphone. I knew immediately knew what they were talking about because I sometimes hear weird sounds when listening to music, videos or other app sounds. It is a distortion and it can be unbearable. It is also strange in that it doesn't matter the proximity of the iPhone and the headset it still occurs at any distance. On the plus side, the headphones sound great when working properly and fit quite comfortably. Perhaps my unit is defective. I don't know. All I do know is that I am disappointed.

  • Dani - Great Purchase.

    Exactly what I needed to install the light bar on my side-by-side. Quite simple to install as well. The wiring is quite sturdy. If you are wondering if you show buy it.
