CDN has announced that many of its NSF-certified thermometers will now be manufactured with BioCote, a technology that offers antimicrobial protection for the expected lifetime of the product.
BioCote is an antimicrobial agent that contains silver, a known antimicrobial. It is shown to be a safe antimicrobial that helps prevent surface cross-contamination by inhibiting growth in a broad spectrum of microbes such as bacteria, mold and fungi on a product’s surface, the company said.
BioCote does not eliminate the need for cleaning thermometers after use; however it is said to reduce the levels of harmful microbes on surfaces by up to 99.9% over a 24-hour period.
BioCote’s silver-based antimicrobial additive is added to CDN NSF-certified thermometers at the time of manufacture to provide safe and long-lasting product protection.
All CDN NSF-certified thermometers in the ProAccurate line feature BioCote technology.
Mary Jurek Design’s Santa Fe round serve tray is made of 18/8 stainless steel and features an etched basketweave interior pattern and decorated with blue onyx stones. It can be hand washed only, but is said to never need polishing, noted the company.
