Bacterial Growth on Office Products

Stamps can represent a risk in terms of cross-contamination because they are handled by many different people in an office environment. This means that common bacteria such as E. coli, S. aureus, MRSA and Salmonella can be easily spread from surface to surface.

Research conducted by the University of Arizona into bacteria in an office environment showed that bacteria tend to harbor on high-touch products such as cell phones, keyboards and computer mice. Disturbingly, the study revealed that the average desktop has 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet seat!

Antibacterial Stamps From COLOP

Growing consumer demand for smarter office products that deliver added peace mind spurred COLOP into creating an entirely new kind of stamp.

Microban's 3rd generation silver ion antibacterial technology is built-in to the handle, cap and index window of COLOP's Classic Line and Printer Line Stamps during manufacture. This antimicrobial formulation is proven to continuously eliminate bacteria on the surface of the stamp by up to 99.99%.

Integrated at the stage of manufacture, Microban technology will last for the stamp's expected lifetime and will not wash off or wear away.
