CuVerro Copper, a Copper Nickel Alloy, is the first material with the strength of stainless steel and the biological activity of copper. CuVerro is also the only material certified by the EPA which contact kills infectious disease. This prevents disease transmission in health care facilities. Additionally, CuVerro is a passive performance technology which kills bacteria on a continuous basis. CuVerro is a partner of Modula S and has been incorporated into the Modula S Deployable ETU which has been named the winner of the USAID Ebola Grand Challenge. We have designed the next generation emergency medical infectious disease clinic for USAID, the CDC, the DoD and the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy. The adoption of Cuverro surfaces in the Modula S ETU only increases cost by less than 1%. The benefits clearly outweigh this minimal capital expense.
