SR Scales infused with Microban® Antimicrobial Technology

Microban® antimicrobial technology is now an exclusive feature on SR 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, potentially spreading bacteria to multiple patients. The antimicrobial technology will be included in all SR medical stand-on, wheelchair, and wall mount scales. Surface areas that contain the antimicrobial protection include the platform, handrails, stanchions, display housing, keypad, and visible labeling.

SR Medical Scales with Microban protection will be available in mid-November for the SR555i, SR565i, SR585i, SR725i-L, SR755i, and the SR7000i scales. Other SR Medical stand-on, wheelchair, and wall mount scales are scheduled to have the antimicrobial technology by the end of the calendar year (2017).
