Luminore CopperTouch Surface Coating Effectively Inactivates CoV-2, Ebola, and Marburg Viruses

Updated: Nov 4, 2023

The American Society of Microbiology has determnine that our cold-spray copper technology surfaces to inactivate filoviruses and severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The copper and copper-nickel surfaces inactivated 99.9% of Ebola and Marburg viruses after 30 min, and the copper surfaces inactivated 99% of SARS-CoV-2 in 2 h. These data reveal that Ebola virus, Marburg virus, and SARS-CoV-2 are inactivated by exposure to copper ions, validating Luminore CopperTouch as an efficacious tool for infection control.
