The Evolution Antimicrobial range of first aid cases are suitable for settings where it is essential that hygiene standards are maintained to the highest level, such as medical and catering environments. The antimicrobial properties of the cases also enable them to help reduce the spread of bacteria in schools and workplaces.
The antimicrobial properties are achieved by adding the compound SteriTouch to the plastic during the manufacture process. The SteriTouch additive is effective in killing a wide range of organisms including bacteria such as MRSA, EColi, Salmonella Enteritidis and Listeria by utilising the natural sterilising properties of silver. This effectiveness has been independently tested and has EFSA, EPA and FDA registration as well as being notified on the European Biocidal Products Directive.The cases are available in three sizes.
