Athens, February 14, 2020. Mr. Apostolos Karabinis, Founder & Entrepreneur of KARABINIS MEDICAL SA, has signed a significant agreement with Microlife USA CEO Mark Porter to promote KARABINIS MEDICAL’s innovative antimicrobial thermometer in USA!

The antimicrobial thermometer having been granted the European and American patent is available in Germany and Greece, and following the trade agreement with Microlife USA it will be launched in USA offering great added value to the health market.

The effective action of the antimicrobial digital thermometer has certified by several clinical studies published in many significant journals such as the American Journal of Emergency Medicines. In addition, the antimicrobial thermometer has received international awards for its documented and patented application against the spread of germs versus the simple digital thermometers.

Through its patented technology application, it aims to create conditions of safe temperature management not only for the family, but also for the whole “health chain” (doctors – nurses – patients).

The innovative digital antimicrobial copper thermometer provides the best solution for hygiene and safe fever management.

  1. Reduces the risk of transmission of germs among users
  2. Provides accurate thermometry
  3. The antimicrobial activity of copper significantly reduces the pathogenic germs

The antimicrobial copper used in this thermometer has been shown in a variety of clinical studies to kill a wide range of pathogenic microbes, such as Klebsiella spp, Staphylococcus Aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Candida spp, Pseudomonas spp, Influenza A (H1N1).

Specifying the subject of the antimicrobial activity of copper, it is extremely important to refer to a research study by Professor William Keevil (Centre for Biological Sciences, University of Southampton, United Kingdom), «Human Coronavirus 229E Remains Infectious on Common Touch Surface Materials» (American Society for Microbiology 2015 6 (6): e01697-15).

The study documented the drastic and rapid reduction of Human Coronavirus 229E coronaviruses, strains responsible for the MERS-Co Middle East Respiratory Syndrome flu, when they come in contact with antimicrobial copper surfaces, where they are exposed to stainless steel, remained unchanged throughout the study.

Mr Apostolos Karabinis noticed that it was a great pleasure for KARABINIS MEDICAL to promote the first digital antimicrobial thermometer, a Greek patent, which could provide one more shield against viruses and germs.

KARABINIS MEDICAL antimicrobial thermometer is available in Greece under the name Microlife MT410 and consumers can obtain it from pharmacies, the official KARABINS MEDICAL product promotion network.
