 COST ACTION TO FIGHT AGAINST FUTURE PANDEMICS

 

Anti-microbial coatings (AMC) are a possible solution to protect people from viral infections as active ingredients like copper or special chemical compounds protect walls, bed curtains and other surfaces, killing or repelling viruses.

The COST (European Cooperation in Science & Technology) Action “Anti-Microbial Coating Innovations to Prevent Infectious Diseases” (AMiCI) has developed a database of active ingredients in AMCs that will help regulators, manufacturers and healthcare providers to safely introduce the technology in order to save lives.

AMiCI has also identified issues with testing methods and approval processes in Europe and prepared guidelines for combining the coatings with best cleaning practice to optimise hospital hygiene.
