What is BioCote?
BioCote is proven antimicrobial protection! Innowave utilizes BioCote technology to provide you with safe, sanitary water coolers. BioCote prohibits the growth and build up of bacteria on the nozzles, drip trays, backsplashes and other areas that the water you’re drinking regularly comes in contact with.
Why is BioCote so important? Check out the graph below:
As the graph shows, on a BioCote protected surface, levels of bacteria are reduced by up to 99% in two hours, compared to an unprotected surface where they can proliferate at dramatic rates.
BioCote antimicrobial protection is effective against a broad spectrum of micro-organisms, including:
- MRSA (Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus)
- MSSA (Methicillin sensitive Staphylococcus aureus)
- E. coli
- Legionella pneumophila
- Pseudomonas aeruginosa
- Salmonella typhimurium and enteritidis
- Listeria monocytogenes
- VRE (vancomycin – resistant Enterococcus)
- Campylobacter spp.
- Staph. aureus
- Aspergillus niger
- Candida albicans
Below is a side-by-side comparison of a drip tray utilitizing BioCote technology and one without. The tray on the left has BioCote while the tray on the right is left unprotected. Both trays started clean, were filled with water and allowed to sit until the water completely evaporated.
