BioCote Antimicrobial Protection
Comark has now reduced hygiene risks by adding BioCote antimicrobial to its top selling temperature measurement instruments, including the C20 Series thermometers.
Use these Comark instruments to check and monitor safe temperatures for food and other temperature sensitive materials throughout manufacture and the supply chain, in the knowledge that the instruments and probes themselves contribute to the fight against harmful bacteria and other micro-organisms.
Why Choose Biocote?
BioCote trials conducted recently at the University of Wolverhampton Science Park Restaurant showed that using a Comark thermometer with BioCote® achieved an average reduction in surface microbe levels of 92.73% compared to an untreated product used in exactly the same way.
BioCote antimicrobial agent added to equipment at risk provides an important second line of defence to support existing hygiene procedures and reduces the risk of spreading harmful micro-organisms
BioCote protection is increasingly accepted as part of HACCP, due diligence and health and safety procedures in the continuing fight against infectious agents
BioCote Ltd has a rigorous validation and quality control programme with all testing conducted by independent laboratories to ensure the anti-microbial performance of all products
BioCote active ingredients are registered with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
How BioCote Works
The silver based BioCote antimicrobial releases silver ions from the surface of any material that has been coated or impregnated with it. The silver ions cause functions in the bacteria to break down, stopping their reproduction and therefore inhibiting bacterial growth.
Comark impregnates the BioCote antimicrobial into the plastic used for instrument cases and other components during the moulding process and applies it to surfaces of labels and keypads. The agent lasts throughout the life of the instrument as an extra defence against the risk of the spread of potentially harmful organisms.
Although BioCote inhibits the growth of micro-organisms on the instrument or probe handle, it does not protect individuals against such harmful organisms or remove the need to maintain the highest standards of personal and product hygiene and cleanliness.
