Marvel Scientific (Richmond, IN, U.S.) has introduced an entire line of antimicrobial-coated stainless steel appliances for the medical and scientific industries, including refrigerators, freezers, and ice machines. The appliances, which were manufactured using antimicrobial-coated stainless steel from supplier AK Coatings, were unveiled at the 2004 International Conference and Exhibition on Health Facility Planning, Design and Construction, held March 15-17 in Tampa, FL, U.S.

"Marvel Scientific is committed to serving the needs of scientists, researchers, and clinicians," said Ann Rohe, sales manager for Marvel Scientific. "Clean environments are critical in medical and science applications. Our line now includes products that suppress microbe growth to help maintain these exacting levels of cleanliness."

The steel coating contains the AgION(TM) antimicrobial compound, which is made up of silver ions. Moisture is said to activate the controlled release of silver ions to suppress the growth of microbes, including mold, mildew, and bacteria, although Marvel says it will not eliminate the need for cleaning. The manufacturer notes that mild soap and water can be used to clean the appliances, eliminating the need for aerosols or cleaning solutions that may impact the surrounding area when used.

The six models outfitted with antimicrobial-coated stainless steel include the 6CAR refrigerator, 6CAD refrigerator (which also meets Americans with Disabilities Act guidelines), 4CAF freezer, 15CM ice machine, 25CM ice machine, and 30 CM ice machine. All models can be built into casework or installed under lab benches.

Other product features include audible and visual temperature monitor alarms with and without relay contacts; refrigerator and freezer thermometers; chart recorders mounted in a full wrap-door design; access ports; and electrical configurations for general purpose, flammable material and hazardous location units.

Marvel Scientific's antimicrobial-coated steel appliances are already in use at the AK Steel Concept Home and City of Hope, a research and treatment center for life-threatening diseases.
