Copper is Antimicrobial

Humans have exploited the inherent antimicrobial properties of copper since the dawn of civilization. Scientific research demonstrates copper's antimicrobial effect and supports its use in applications where control of contamination benefits society, such as healthcare, heating & air-conditioning and public transport. Copper alloys are the only solid surfaces registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as antimicrobial public health products.
