Do Those Cases Really Work? The Answer To A Question We Get A Lot

When the news picked up on the story of the study from Stanford University that found on average, smartphones have 18x more bacteria than a Men's pubic toilet, it solidified what I think many of us suspected. For the record, numerous other analyses and studies have validated that information. The idea of a smartphone case that fights bacteria on the surface is an idea that we have been told countless time is one of those "Why didn't I think of that?" concepts. It is intuitive that the one thing that goes with us everywhere, gets set down everywhere, is warm (providing a great breeding ground for bacteria) would be covered with filth. It has now become a non-neogitable to even go to the bathroom without these devices. As someone with 3 young children, they want to use that same phone at night. Physicians are now coining the smartphone as "the 3rd hand" it has become such a part of our daily lives. It is truly no wonder they harbor so much bacteria. I don't believe anyone questions this. The quote on our homepage from a former American Academy of Family Practice President says all you need to know.

One question we have received frequently is "Does it really work?" While some of the  information is technical and proprietary, the answer is a resounding yes. Independent testing has been done on the antimicrobial/antibacterial silver nanoparticles on the surface of the cases and has been found to be 99.98%* effective against E. Coli and S. Aureus. Silver what? Yes, as strange as it sounds silver is antibacterial. The use of breaking it down into actual nanoparticles smaller than the bacterial cells themselves allow them to break down the cell walls of germs. This kills them and keeps them from replicating. But is anyone else using this? Absolutely. Medical device companies are using this in medical devices in the cath (heart) lab, urological devices, as well as other applications to prevent infections. Silver is also used in dressing and creams to prevent infections. Additionally, retailers like Under Armour, LG, Samsung, Hanes, and numerous other reputable brands are incorporating silver into clothing, washers, and refrigerators, to prevent bacterial build up. There are even companies like FitScrubs that are developing silver infused scrubs for healthcare professionals whose scrubs are exposed to contamination. We could argue the smartphone is just as "at risk". BioCloak Solutions LLC is leading the way in fighting bacteria on that thing you're probably reading this on. Additionally, the screen protectors have also been tested against E. Coli, MRSA, S. Aureus, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, and certain fungal spores. We wanted to develop a case that offers protection from drops and falls for the protection we want for our smartphone, but with an the added benefit of antibacterial action from cover to cover. Our goal is to redefine what "protection" is on probably the "germiest" thing we (and our families) touch the most...
