Antimicrobial Scales featuring Microban® Product Protection
Microban® antimicrobial technology is an exclusive feature on SR's Medical Scales and has been added to help reduce the growth of bacteria on scales as part of a medical center's approach to creating a cleaner healthcare environment.
Scales are typically deployed throughout a hospital to weigh many patients on a daily basis. These scales are often moved and shared throughout the facility, which can promote bacteria growth on high touch surfaces. Microban antimicrobial product protection has been added to all SR medical scale product lines including stand-on scales, wheelchair scales, wall mount scales, and pediatric scales. Surface areas that contain the antimicrobial protection include the platform, handrails, stanchions, display housing, keypad, and visible labeling.
How Our Antimicrobial Scales Works
Microban protection begins to work as soon as a micro-organism comes into contact with the product surface. The technology then works continuously to maintain a consistently lower bio-burden than would be expected on a product without Microban protection.
