Germ Genie Kills Keyboard Germs Even C.difficile
C. difficule (Clostridium difficile) is a bacterium found in the environment, but it is most common in hospitals and areas where symptomatic patients have been present.
C. difficile infection is often hospital-acquired and is more common than infections caused by MRSA.
Germ Genie which was developed by Falcon Innovations and tested at the University of Hertfordshire’s Biodet laboratory was launched in October 2010 at which point the results of the University of Hertfordshire’s tests on E.Coli, Staphylococcus Aureus and Bacillus Subtillis, revealed that it kills ninety-nine percent of germs across most of the keyboard in just two minutes, and across the whole keyboard in ten minutes.
