24x7 Infection Control, Inc. Announces World's First, Modern “Shield” Against Microbial Contamination
Date:3/5/2010

Microbial contamination is the third leading cause of mortality in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

Charleston, SC (PRWEB) March 5, 2010 -- Today’s hospitals have an increasingly dangerous and costly problem. The culprit…Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) and they have generated much attention over the last decade. Studies have shown that up to 70% of HAIs are preventable with proper infection control, according to a Nurse Liaison for 24x7 Infection Control, Inc.    

A totally new (to the public) antimicrobial line named Goldshield®™ is a revolutionary product that, through independent studies it was demonstrated to eradicate germs on contact and inhibit their growth. Invented and patented by Emory University, Goldshield®™ is a system of products which includes an antimicrobial that is the first, and only, water-stabilized, non-toxic, non-leaching, environmentally benign solution providing a durable shield against microbial contamination, including mold, mildew and fungi.

Goldshield®™ offers an EPA-registered solution to combat dangerous microbial contamination in virtually every setting including hospitals, outpatient clinics, physicians offices, assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities, schools, colleges, athletic clubs, gymnasiums, spas, police departments, emergency medical services, fire departments, correctional institutions, the hospitality industry and commercial laundry facilities, to name a few.

Independent studies conducted at hospitals and universities have demonstrated that Goldshield® is a broad-spectrum bactericide, algaecide and fungicide. In these studies, it has been proven effective against Staphylococcus aureus (Staph), Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA); including HA-MRSA (Healthcare-associated MRSA) and CA-MRSA (community- associated MRSA), Salmonella, E.coli, VRE (Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococci, and other hardy Gram (+) and Gram (-) bacteria. In a recent study in accordance with ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) protocols for virucidal efficacy on inanimate surfaces, Goldshield®™ was proven effective against Influenza A as a surrogate for H1N1.

Sharon Harper, an OR nurse and retired, Navy Infection Control Officer, stated, “I have seen the results and can appreciate why Goldshield®™ is so unique. In my opinion, the most exciting use of this new antimicrobial is via a “Bio-Vapor” Steam Cleaning System. This method allows Goldshield®™ to adhere in every ‘nook and cranny’! My mission as the nurse liaison for 24x7 Infection Control, Inc. is to inform government agencies, schools, hospitals, assisted living and long-term care communities that Goldshield®™ is now available.”

The parent company, AP Goldshield LLC is located in the United States, Israel, Asia, and Europe. 24x7 Infection Control, Inc. is an Authorized Distributor for Goldshield®™.
