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
