Seal Shield Introduces Silver Seal Washable, Antimicrobial Keyboard, Mouse

Seal Shield LLC recently introduced the new SILVER SEALTM Washable, Antimicrobial Mouse, which the company said is the first computer mouse to be fully submersible, dishwasher safe, and manufactured with silver-ion antimicrobial plastic.

The new SILVER SEALTM mouse has been created to help reduce the risk of cross contaminations, including Influenza and the �superbug,� MRSA. The new mouse is a companion product to the
company�s SILVER SEALTM Washable, Antimicrobial Keyboard, which began shipping in February 2008.

Influenza is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It can cause severe illness, and can lead to death. According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control), 5-20 percent of the population gets the flu annually, more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu complications, and about 36,000 people die from flu. Bacterial infections can occur as co-infections with influenza or occur following influenza infection. Last year, CDC noted an increase in flu and Staphylococcus aureus (staph infections) co-infections among children who had died or were hospitalized with influenza infection. Some of those infections were MRSA.

SILVER SEALTM protects against infections. Unlike other antibacterial products, the SILVER SEALTM antimicrobial
plastic utilizes pure silver ions embedded in the plastic to create a safe and effective antimicrobial solution. Silver is a natural antibacterial product and its properties have been incorporated into the SILVER SEALTM Keyboard using new nanotechnology. The combination of SILVER SEALTM plastic and SEAL SHIELDTM washable technology results in a high level of cross contamination protection, the manufacturer said.
