Antibacterial Phone Cases from Cellularline and Microban®
Cellularline Group is a European leader in accessories for smartphones and tablets. The company is listed on the STAR Segment of the Italian Electronic Stock Exchange and boasts an intercontinental distribution network covering more than 60 countries.
How Dirty Is Your Mobile Phone?
Always present but seldom cleaned, it’s not surprising that smartphones are commonly cited as bacterial hotspots. Not only do we take them everywhere with us, but they are also in frequent contact with our hands, face, and other contaminated surfaces. This provides microorganisms with ample opportunity to migrate and spread from surface to surface.
According to a study by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, fecal matter can be found on 1 out of every 6 smartphones. Similar research conducted by the University of Arizona found that smartphones are in fact up to 7x dirtier than the average toilet seat!
Cellularline Group Partners With Microban International
Thanks to a highly tailored product strategy based on excellence in quality, design, and innovation, Cellularline has joined forces with Microban International to create a range of smartphone cases featuring durable, effective, and high-performing antimicrobial technologies.
Added Protection for Smartphone Accessories
The collaboration between Celluarline and Microban means that smartphone accessories can benefit from an added line of defense against bacteria.
Integrated during the manufacturing process, Microban technology becomes an intrinsic feature of the smartphone case. It works by disrupting the vital life processes and biological functions of contaminating bacteria, meaning they cannot grow or reproduce on the treated surface and subsequently die.
Below (l-r): Sensation Case, Gloss Case, Tetra Force Strong Guard Case, Tetra Force Strong Guard Mag Case, and the Book Agenda Case, all treated with Microban antimicrobial technology.
Laboratory data has shown that Microban technology actively reduces up to 99.9% of bacteria on the surface of the case, helping it stay hygienically cleaner in-between cleaning. Unlike common disinfectants, the protection won’t wash off, wear away, or require re-application.
Eleonora Pierandrei, Marketing Manager at Cellularline, commented: "We really saw the potential for antimicrobial technology to work across our different product ranges, and the Microban® team had the experience of working with all kinds of materials to know the right technologies to choose for our cases."

How Effective Are Antimicrobial Cases?
Offering smartphone accessories that are protected from the growth of invisible enemies is an important innovation and one that can help support regular cleaning in-between uses and offer much-needed peace of mind for consumers. An antimicrobial case is a protective shell that can be attached to the back and sides of a smartphone. The case not only prevents accidental damages but also features 24/7 product protection from microbial growth.
Antimicrobial cases are highly effective against bacterial growth, delivering ongoing reductions of up to 99.9%. They do not require special treatment and can be cleaned with standard cleaning solutions without suffering from diminished antimicrobial performance.
