Recent test results prove that AEGIS is effective against the deadly MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus) strain.
An excerpt from the official report is as follows:
These antibacterial tests were performed to demonstrate the effectiveness of the AEGIS Microbe Shield Technology against the specific Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strain. Test Methods conform to ASTM E2149-01 guidelines (Standard Test Method for Determining the Antimicrobial Activity of Immobilized Antimicrobial Agents Under Dynamic Contact Conditions).
These data indicate that the fabric tested, treated with the AEGIS Microbe Shield Technology (AEM5772/5), reduces the total population of MRSA bacteria >99.99 % after one hour simulated dynamic contact. Untreated fabric samples tested in parallel demonstrated no effectiveness at reducing the total MRSA population. These results indicate the antimicrobial effectiveness of the sample treated with the AEGIS Microbe Shield Technology against the resistant bacteria MRSA.
