Controlling Pseudomonas aeruginosa in 7 UK hospitals using copper and silver ionization

2017-02-22T17:15:49+00:00

In a study of seven UK hospitals, research finds that copper silver ionization is an effective measure in controlling Pseudomonas aeruginosa.   (via LinkedIn): Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a common biofilm-forming Gram-negative opportunistic bacterium with extensive metabolic diversity, which allows it to thrive in a wide variety of environments and nutrient sources. Hospital water is a recognized source of the pathogen, but it is a common cause of both community-acquired and hospital-acquired infections. P. aeruginosa is implicated in diseases especially of the lungs and thus need to be controlled in healthcare facilities, particularly in augmented units. Copper and silver ionization (CSI) is recognised as [...]

Copper Silver Ionization: What’s the Truth?

2017-05-19T14:43:47+00:00

Many claims have been made in the last couple years regarding the effectiveness of copper silver ionization systems. For a long time chlorine disinfection systems were the default solution to Legionella eradication. Despite this, hospitals have long considered copper silver ionization the gold standard for preventing Legionnaires’ disease. The LiquiTech copper silver system disperses positively charged copper and silver ions into the water system. It is a registered solution with federal and state Environmental Protection Agencies for killing Legionella in drinking water. It has been validated in more than 100 clinical articles as the most effective water disinfection technology to effectively [...]
