*Laboratory testing shows that, when cleaned regularly, CuVerro® surfaces kill more than 99.9 percent of the following bacteria within 2 hours of exposure: Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus aureus, Entrerobacter aerogenes,Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and E. coli O157:H7.


The use of CuVerro® antimicrobial copper products is a 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 and disinfection of environmental surfaces. This surface has been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but it does not necessarily prevent cross contamination. It should not be interpreted that CuVerro is making claims to solely prevent HAI, nor should it be implied that CuVerro products make such claims. CuVerro is a registered trademark of GBC Metals and used with permission (RM-0013-1302). For more details, visit
