Abstract:
Seal Shield LLC has begun shipping a new family of fully submersible, 108 key, International keyboards with SILVER SEAL Antimicrobial protection to help reduce the risk of worldwide cross contaminations, including Norovirus and the "superbug," MRSA. According to the company, the SILVER SEAL(TM) International Keyboard is the world's first 108 key, multi-language keyboard to be dishwasher safe and embedded with Silver Seal Antimicrobial protection. The SILVER SEAL International Keyboard is currently available in English, Spanish, French, German, Swiss, Chinese, Hebrew and Arabic. The new keyboard is a 108 key version of the company's best selling, SILVER SEAL(TM) Medical Grade Keyboard (Patent Pending), which was introduced in the United States earlier this year.

Seal Shield to Launch World's First Dishwasher Safe, Antimicrobial Keyboard with Multi-Language Support for International Markets

JACKSONVILLE, FL | Posted on July 16th, 2008

Numerous independent studies have shown that computer keyboards are a primary cross contamination risk for hospitals worldwide. According to University of Arizona scientist, Dr. Charles Gerba, "the keyboard has some 10 million germs." Dr. Gerba also states that "the keyboard has about 400 times more germs than the average toilet seat." A recent study at the University of Washington found high levels of fecal coliform, the bacteria found in fecal matter, on keyboards at campus computer areas.

"The new Silver Seal International Keyboards are the best in class, infection control keyboards on the market. They look and feel like standard keyboards, but are unique in that they are ANTIMICROBIAL and DISHWASHER SAFE," states Tom Mullaney, Seal Shield Vice President of International Development. "The Silver Seal International Keyboards provide world wide healthcare organizations with the same Silver Seal infection control technology currently used in hospitals across the United States."

Unlike many antibacterial products, SILVER SEAL(TM) antimicrobial devices utilize all natural, pure silver ions which are embedded in the plastic to create a safe and effective, inorganic, antimicrobial solution. Silver is a natural antibacterial product and its properties have been incorporated into the SILVER SEAL(TM) International Keyboards using state of the art, nanotechnology. The combination of SILVER SEAL(TM) plastic and SEAL SHIELD(TM) washable technology results in the highest level of cross contamination protection available in an input device today.

SEAL SHIELD infection control solutions are distributed in the UK by The Keyboard Company, in Germany by Megabyte Systemhaus GmbH and in the USA by Dell, CDW, Corporate Express, Insight and other reseller partners.
