The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a wide range of new healthcare-related technologies. As people and businesses look for ways to remain healthy, new projects are being developed. One such project is CleanSURFACES.
CleanSURFACES was developed by grad students and professors at Penn State University, and the technology was transferred to Aionx to develop and commercialize. It has already reached commercialization, and clinical studies are also being conducted.
“CleanSURFACES are fully-developed and on the market,” said Aionx CEO Gary J. Shope. “They are in use in numerous healthcare systems and facility types.”
The name sums up the concept: the surfaces clean themselves continuously. CleanSURFACES are antimicrobial mats that activate when microbes contact a surface. An embedded circuit board sends a micro-electric impulse along printed conductive traces to that location to activate antimicrobial silver and copper ions that quickly eradicate the contaminants &nda
