French laboratory walks its talk

A private laboratory in France has installed antimicrobial copper door furniture throughout its facility to help reduce surface contamination.

Institut de Recherche Microbiologique carried out testing of antimicrobial copper alloys to be deployed in healthcare environments, and were so impressed by the results they opted to outfit their own facility with antimicrobial copper.

Copper is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial, able to rapidly kill bacteria, viruses and fungi deposited on its surface.  It shares this property with many copper alloys, including brass and bronze.
