British company has the solution for hygienically safe touch screens

London 24th November 2020

How do you solve the problem of using touch screens when viruses are spread by touch?

Touch screens have become an unavoidable part of daily life for consumers and staff. If a screen is there people expect to be able to interact with it. During a time when we are trying to reduce contact with others, touch screens reduce person to person interaction, queuing and dwell time so given the choice, most people will choose the screen. However, tests conducted by the Microbiology department at London Metropolitan University found dangerous pathogens on touch screens. All it takes is one infected person to leave bacteria on a surface for the next person. Cleaning is one way of managing this but it is impossible to clean after each use and the excessive use of chemicals are harmful to the environment. British company Veraco has launched a hygiene product that solves this problem; the Antimicrobial "Safe Screen" cover.
