Background: The role of fomites and the environment in nosocomial infections is becoming widely recognized. In this paper we discuss the use of Cupron copper oxide impregnated non-porous solid surface in the hospital setting and present in vitro testing data via USA Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved testing protocols that demonstrate the efficacy of these products to assist in reduction in environmental contamination and potentially nosocomial infections. Results: The two countertops tested passed all the acceptance criteria by the EPA (>99.9% kill within 2 hours of exposure) killing a range of bacterial pathogens on the surface of the countertops even after repeated exposure of the countertops to the pathogen, and multiple wet and dry abrasion cycles. Conclusions: Cupron enhanced EOS countertops thus may be an important adjunct to be used in hospital settings to reduce environmental bioburden and potentially nosocomial infections. © 2014 Monk et al.; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.

Agency: National Science Foundation | Branch: | Program: SBIR | Phase: Phase I | Award Amount: 149.88K | Year: 2010
This SBIR Phase I project will improve operation of deep-bed filter biological denitrification through a number of modifications to the current process. These include (i) Replacement of air usage with compressed Nitrogen gas for bump, scour, and airlift. (ii) Elimination of nuisance biological growth on weir walls by dosing carbon right over the filter bed using Venturi eductor principles. (iii) Inclusion of alkalinity buffering rock materials in bed media. The broader/commercial impact of the project will be more efficient treatment of municipal wastewater in order to reduce total nitrogen concentrations entering the nation's waters. A secondary benefit is reduction in the use of methanol that is currently used as a carbon source in the filtration process.
