We know that antimicrobial products help prevent the spread of germs and bacteria, but are they actually effective against COVID-19?
Until recently, it has been impossible for the manufacturers of antimicrobial additives to answer this question, because only government laboratories were licenced to handle the SARS-CoV-virus (the virus that causes Covid-19) due to the virility of the strain.
However this has changed in the last few months, with selected Class 3 laboratories able to begin testing.
Biomaster has recently completed its testing, with ‘game changing’ success
Biomaster report the following successes:
- A porous substrate with Biomaster additive showed a 68% reduction of SARS-CoV-2 in 15 minutes and over 99% in 4 hours.
- A Non-porous substrate with Biomaster additive showed a 60% reduction of SARS-CoV-2 in 2 hours and over 99% in 24 hours.
The Evohold Antimicrobial ID Card holders contain the Biomaster antimicrobial additive, which is great news for anyone who has bought them in the last few months or is considering investing in them.
Whilst no one product is the answer to the threat posed by COVID-19, antimicrobial products can play a significant part in keeping your workforce and workplace safe.
