Louisville, KY (PRWEB)
As antimicrobial copper products become more and more prevalent in healthcare facilities of all types and sizes, it was only a matter a time before a company emerged that would custom build any product with an antimicrobial touch surface to a customer’s individual specifications.
Enter Midbrook Medical, the five-year-old biomedical division of the world’s leading manufacturer of cleaning and decontamination systems for a wide range of industries. Since 2011, the company has partnered with CuVerro® as an EPA-registered facility on the design and fabrication of products made with CuVerro’s patented antimicrobial copper alloys.
The venture offers unique benefits for a wide variety of healthcare concerns, since Midbrook Medical’s experienced metal workers can use CuVerro alloys to build virtually any custom item a customer wants. Among the many products the company lists as examples are carts and tables, chairs and beds, cabinets and workstations and lighting fixtures, as well as touch surfaces like door plates, table tops, cabinet handles and more.
And it’s proving to be a worthwhile investment for a growing list of Midbrook Medical’s clients. With the average cost of just one hospital acquired infection running $43,000,it’s no small wonder, then, that so many healthcare companies are making antimicrobial copper a significant part of their infection control practices.
“Midbrook Medical is a great example of how smart manufacturers are using CuVerro alloys to serve the healthcare field,” said Peter Gude, CuVerro’s Business Development Director. “We regard them as a key strategic partner as we continue to pursue our commitment to building an actionable suite of innovative products for every corner of the market.”
CuVerro is an Olin Brass company, wholly owned by GBC Metals, Inc. and the world leader in providing antimicrobial copper surfaces for product manufacturers serving the healthcare, education, hospitality, and select other industries.
