Copper takes on the superbugs
This video shows a live experiment carried out at the University of Southampton demonstrating that copper very effectively kills MRSA. This raises the possiblity that copper surfaces could be introduced into hospitals and used to cover areas that are frequently touched by patients, visitors and healthcare professionals. We think this is pretty cool!
