SAN DIEGOSeptember 17, 2015 – EOS Surfaces, LLC, a leading surfaces technology developer and manufacturer dedicated to innovation that increases patient safety and reduces costs of care, will showcase its EOSCU Preventive|Biocidal Surfaces™ (Cupron Enhanced EOS) at IDWeek 2015. EOSCU is the only copper-infused hard surface EPA-registered to make public health claims for its ability to actively and continuously kill 99.9% of gram negative and gram positive bacteria* within two hours of exposure, even after recontamination. 

EOSCU is used in healthcare facilities on known high-touch, highly contaminated areas, such as hospital bed rails, overbed tables, and sink bowls, as well as in high- traffic areas like nurses’ stations in an effort to help reduce the spread of bacteria from surfaces to patients. As a result, the Preventive|Biocidal Surfaces serve as an integral part of infection control protocols aimed at decreasing the incidence of hospital acquired infections (HAIs).
