Cybernet Announces World’s First Antimicrobial* Touch Glass to protect the computer from degradation or deterioration on a Medical Grade Computer

Irvine, CA 2/4/20 – Cybernet is excited to announce the world’s first fully antimicrobial* medical computer. Cybernet’s medical grade computers have always featured a housing with antimicrobial* properties, and now can offer a fully antimicrobial* touch glass as well to protect the computer from degradation or deterioration.

Available on the 20”, 22”, and 24” models. It has been tested and received certification from the FDA for both food and medical device use, and has passed the Fungal Resistance Tests for Aspergillus, Penicillium, and Chaetomium fungi. This breakthrough glass will be available on the CyberMed S series and NB series medical computers as an optional feature.

This technology is similar to the technology used on the CyberMed Rx medical tablet’s touch glass, which was also a world’s first when it was released 3 years ago. This is the first time that this technology has been applied to such a large touchscreen, and is an important breakthrough as EMR software and the use of touchscreen computers has become near ubiquitous in healthcare facilities.

The technology used to create the touch glass is a patented process that bonds the antimicrobial* properties to the glass, meaning it will never degrade or wipe off, even after the use of chemical disinfectants.

“We have always prided ourselves on being on the cutting edge of medical grade computing technology. This is just another technological innovation that Cybernet has brought to the HIT space,” said Ali Bagheri, VP of Global Operations at Cybernet. “When you think about it, the glass on an all-in-one computer is one of the most touched surfaces in a hospital. It just made sense for us to protect that surface with antimicrobial* properties to protect itself from degradation or deterioration.”

This innovation comes on the heels of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) updating their mandate for the reduction of HAIs (hospital acquired infections) in hospitals for 2020. Preventing the spread of disease within a hospital has been a difficult battle for healthcare facilities over the years, and this is another tool in that fight for clinicians to use.
