Antimicrobial efficacy on furniture contact surfaces

Things become easily difficult when they cannot be seen. This applies to both positive and negative matters as a friction to digest the facts happening. The current pandemic is a perfect example of such invisible enemy, which is hard to fight against when the viruses cannot be seen armed and dangerous. Likewise, it is hard to believe that surfaces can mitigate the risk of infection unless made visible somehow. Luckily, science serves this particular issue.
ISKU has conducted various research in cooperation with partner companies, universities and other institutions to make the invisible efficacy of antimicrobial surfaces become visible. These studies include premises from all essential public premises: learning, working and healthcare environments. Although antimicrobial efficacy on surfaces is a mature technology and there are around four thousand scientific articles available, ISKU has chosen to find out the results with its own ISKU+ concept.
