Date:7/27/2009

Midbrook is using copper alloys in medical manufacturing. The unique antimicrobial properties of copper make it well-suited for use in hospitals and other medical facilities that are working to prevent infections.

(Vocus) July 27, 2009 -- Midbrook, a Jackson, MI based medical manufacturer of cleaning and decontamination systems as well as case carts and storage cabinets has begun to use copper alloys as an alternative to stainless steel for their exterior work surfaces.

Midbrook originally became interested in the use of copper through their association with officials from the Copper Development Authority (CDA) whom they met at the Association for Professionals in Infection Control (APIC) conference in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. The CDA has directed extensive research to confirm the antimicrobial properties of copper. The results of this research have enabled the CDA member organizations to register multiple copper alloys with the EPA as antimicrobial surfaces.

A clean copper surface is capable of killing 99.9% of bacteria exposed to the surface within 2 hours from time of initial exposure. These studies have confirmed works surfaces made with copper alloy material kill forms of hospital acquired infections such as MRSA and C diff.

Copper can be used in many applications around a medical facility. It can be cut and formed similar to stainless steel, allowing construction of copper tables, carts, and cabinetry. Any place
