L&R Ultrasonics First to Offer Ultrasonic Cleaning Machines With AK Coatings' Antimicrobial-Coated Stainless Steel

KEARNY, NJ, Marcy 5, 2003 - L&R Manufacturing Co. today introduces SweepZone Ag®, a new line of SweepZone Ultrasonic Cleaning Systems manufactured with AgION(tm) antimicrobial-coated stainless steel from AK Coatings. The AgION compound is a patented product that is applied to the steel to suppress the growth and migration of bacteria and other micro-organisms.

The process is simple. Silver ions, the active ingredient, are slowly released from the anti-microbial compound to the surface of the treated steel, inhibiting the growth of destructive microbes. AK Coatings' antimicrobial-coated stainless steel also resists fingerprinting, resulting in a cleaner appearance.

"Along with the recent introduction of UltraDose® Germicidal Hospital Grade Ultrasonic Cleaning Solution," says Robert Lazarus, President of L&R Manufacturing, "L&R is positioned to be the leader in infection control procedures relating to instrument cleaning and processing prior to sterilization."

AgION is the world's most advanced inorganic antimicrobial material which is used in the manufacture of biomedical, industrial and consumer goods. The AgION antimicrobial compound has been listed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as an antimicrobial agent that suppresses the growth of bacteria.
