Innovative Fosshield(R) Antimicrobial Technology Shown to Continuously Kill MRSA 'Superbug'
Date:10/30/2007

Dave Cicchinelli, Executive Vice President of Marketing at Foss Manufacturing. "Moisture in the environment, the same moisture required for microbes to grow, initiates the release of silver and copper ions from the fibers on demand. These ions disable the microbe's metabolism, inactivating them. The potential for continuous release ensures long lasting antimicrobial performance."

"This ability to inactivate microbes in the environment on a continuous basis is important because bacteria, including MRSA, can survive in a variety of conditions for long periods of time and can spread via dust particles, clothing, furniture, or hospital equipment that have been in contact with infected patients," according to Dr. Gerba. "MRSA is emerging and spreading worldwide, and the number of infections is increasing outside the hospital setting. Therefore, it is important to broaden our arsenal beyond therapeutic options to include built-in protective measures involving high-traffic areas and materials in our environment."

MRSA and Broad-Spectrum Protection Data

In independent studies led by Dr. Gerba, Fosshield(R) Antimicrobial Technology was shown to continuously kill MRSA and a number of other bacteria including Streptococcus pyogenes (strep), Legionella pneumonphila (Legionnaries' disease), Haemophilus influenzae (flu) and Tuberculosis (TB). Results indicated a consistent and significant reduction in bacteria after one hour. More extensive evaluation studies are also underway for viruses.

"Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the threat of germs and mold, and the significant health risk bacteria is causing in our schools, homes, offices and cars," continued Dave Cicchinelli. "Fosshield(R) can provide continuous, affordable and natural antimicrobial protection in those fabrics surrounding us everyday. Manufacturers of consumer goods are responding with a wide variety of Fosshield(R) applications in apparel/footwear, carpeting, wall covering, linen
