Video Presentations on Antimicrobial Copper

The videos below provide an overview* of the prevalence and seriousness of infections, including those acquired in hospitals, as well as public places.  It in imperative that these problems be addressed and solutions provided.  In addition, the world continues to be threatened by viruses such as H1N1, SARS (SARS-CoV), MERS, and most recently, SARS-CoV-2, that has cause the  COVID-19 pandemic.  Copper alloy surfaces can help curtail the spread of these and other infections infections.

*These videos will quickly and efficiently provide you with a broad understanding of the power of Antimicrobial Copper.  Since Antimicrobial Copper kills the microbes responsible for infections, it can save lives.

  • VIDEO:  Copper Alloys Can Kill Bacteria and Destroy Viruses, including Corona Virus  (~6 minutes)

  • VIDEO:  Ronald McDonald House - Benefits of installing antimicrobial copper components in this facility that houses families of children undergoing hospital treatment  (~5 minutes)

  • Video:  Copper may save your life by killing the bacteria causes hospital acquired infections,                     an epidemic that kills approximately 100,000 people each year in the United States  (~7 minutes)

  • Video:  Antimicrobial Copper kills Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria including MRSA,         the Notorious Hospital - Acquired "Superbug" (~3 minutes)

  • Video:  Time-lapse video presentation showing the power of antimicrobial copper - filmed in the laboratory of Professor C. William Keevil at the University of South Hampton, United Kingdom (~8 minutes)

  • Video:  Dr. Michael Schmidt's TEDx Talk on Hospital Infections.  Dr. Schmidt is one of the of medical doctors and scientists who ran the 3-hospital clinical trial that demonstrated that the introduction of components made antimicrobial copper alloys reduced hospital acquired infection (~10 minutes)

*EPA required statement:  Laboratory testing shows that, when cleaned regularly, antimicrobial copper surfaces kill greater than 99.9% of the following bacteria within 2 hours of exposure: MRSA, VRE, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter aerogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and E. coli O157:H7. Antimicrobial copper surfaces are a supplement to and not a substitute for standard infection control practices and have been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but do not necessarily prevent cross contamination or infections; users must continue to follow all current infection control practices.
