Preventing Germ Infections
Germ Genie, which was developed by Falcon Innovations and tested at the University of Hertfordshire's Biodet laboratory was launched at the Total Workplace Management show in October. The results of the University of Hertfordshire's tests on E.Coli, S. Aureus and B. Subtillis, reveal that Germ Genie kills ninety-nine percent of germs across most of the keyboard in just two minutes, and across the whole keyboard in ten minutes.
The device works by sensing finger movement on the computer keyboard, and after the user has finished it sanitises the keyboard with UV light. This treatment leaves the keyboard ready for the next user so they will not pick up microbes that would otherwise have posed a risk of passing on infections like Flu, MRSA and E.Coli. Unlike other solutions, it will sanitise the keyboard many times each day, at exactly the times it is needed - after each user.
