CuVerro® bactericidal copper alloys are the first solid surface registered by the EPA to kill 99.9% of the bacteria1 that can cause infections, when cleaned regularly. Its efficacy is tested and proven, which makes CuVerro® the ideal alternative to traditional materials for any environment.
Laboratory tests show CuVerro is more effective at killing bacteria compared to traditional materials often used as healthcare surfaces, such as stainless steel, plastic, and wood.
EPA-registered, CuVerro® surfaces kill pathogens responsible for causing healthcare-associated infections (HAIs):
- Staphylococcus aureus
- Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
- Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus faecalis (VRE)
- E. coli O157:H7
- Pseudomonas aeruginosa
- Enterobacter aerogenes
Clinical trials have also been conducted in active Intensive Care Units and healthcare facilities. These studies support the results of the EPA GLP tests – copper alloys reduce bacteria1 continuously and consistently.*
