Antifomitic Portfolio (736)
Infection transmitted by contamination of objects in everyday use may be combated by periodic sterilization of such objects, as with ultraviolet sterilization lamps, or alternatively by covering them with cleanable or disposable protective barriers. Sterilization is impractical or insufficient for some objects and uses. In such cases a protective barrier may be desirable. The barrier approach is time honored and widespread, and includes current products covering items such as medical and dental equipment, toilet seats, keyboards, and bedding.
The need for this type of technology to prevent transmission of disease is recognized popularly and in government mandates such as OSHA guidelines including Directive CPL 02-02-069, Enforcement Procedures for the Occupational Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens concerning potential workplace exposure to diseases.
The technology under offer is an improvement to existing methods providing an initially sterile covering without significant added manufacturing/packaging costs. Unit costs, once in production, are less than $0.25 each and in quantity far less.
