Antimicrobial IV poles with CuVerro Shield by Aereus Technologies

Frequently touched surfaces like IV poles have long been identified as reservoirs for the spread of pathogenic microbes.¹ These can easily contaminate the hands and equipment of healthcare professionals who in turn can transmit these pathogens to patients during routine care leading to Healthcare-associated infections.

Our Antimicrobial IV Poles protected with CuVerro ShieldTM by Aereus Technologies* offers you a solution to this problem.

CuVerro ShieldTM is a unique coating of naturally antimicrobial copper that is applied to our stainless steel poles, ram horns, and u-hooks to deliver outstanding protection to your highest touch zones.

The result? CuVerro®kills more than 99.9% of bacteria** within two hours and continues to kill 99% of bacteria** even after repeated contamination.

A US government funded study conducted by researchers at the US National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Protection found that the HCoV-19 virus remained viable for up to 2 to 3 days on plastic and stainless steel surfaces versus up to 4 hours on copper.²

* CuVerro Shield™ by Aereus Technologies is a Health Canada Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) registered process.**Laboratory testing shows that, when cleaned regularly, CuVerro surfaces kill greater than 99.9% of the following bacteria within 2 hours of exposure: Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus,Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter aerogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, E.coli 0157:H7, and Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcusfaecalis (VRE). The use of CuVerro® bactericidal copper products isa supplement to and not a substitute for standard infection control practices; users must continue to follow all current infection control practices, including those practices related to cleaning anddisinfection of environmental surfaces. This surface has been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but it does not necessarily prevent cross contamination.¹Oie S, Hosokawa I, Kamiya A. 2002.
