Cuverrro EPA Info

The copper alloy surface material has been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but it does not necessarily prevent cross-contamination. The use of a copper alloy surface is a supplement to and not a substitute for standard infection control practices; users must follow all current infection control practices, including those practices related to cleaning and disinfection of environmental surfaces.

CuVerro antimicrobial alloys are registered with the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency as antimicrobial and are permitted to be associated with public health claims.
