Copper Eliminates Resistant Hospital Germs in a Worldwide Field Test
Date:8/22/2008

p to 20,000 Euro. The most frequent complications with weakened patients after a MRSA infection include wound infections, pneumonias, blood poisonings, and urinary tract infections.

Research is going full steam ahead worldwide

The tests at the Asklepios Clinic in Hamburg, Germany, were initiated by laboratory tests in which 99.9 percent of the bacteria, including the high hazard MRSA agents, were eliminated within a period of a few minutes up to two hours on copper surfaces. In contrast, the same microbes were able to survive up to three days on stainless steel surfaces. This is why the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has confirmed the antimicrobial effect of copper only recently, in March this year. Current research is closing a scientific gap which has existed for a very long time: "Humanity has had positive experience with the hygienic effect of copper for thousands of years", says Dr.-Ing. Anton Klassert, Business Manager of the German Copper Institute (DKI). "Against the backdrop of the current problems in the health care system, the DKI has now taken the first steps in order to apply these properties of copper in a modern hospital", according to the Director of the European Copper Competence Centre "Antimicrobial Properties".

Visual material and the PowerPoint presentations of the speakers on the topic "Copper & Germs" are available on request.
