Antimicrobial Protection Layer (APL)
What is APL?
Using the same technology already used extensively throughout the healthcare environment in wall coatings, patient lighting, air pressure stabilization and suction liners, APL helps prevent the growth of unwanted microbes that can cause degradation, discoloration, staining or odors on the Globe | Euromex microscopes. Independent laboratory testing demonstrated a reduction of up to 99.99% in microbes after 24 hours.
How does it work?
- The technology binds to the cell wall, helping disrupt growth
- The technology assists in interference with the enzyme production, stopping the cell producing energy
- APL helps to interrupt the cells DNA, preventing replication
Silver is an element found naturally in the environment. Since ancient times silver has been highly regarded as a versatile antimicrobial tool which has health and environmental concerns. The additives we use are non-leaching and non-irritating.
Will APL wear off?
Once APL has been incorporated into a material it is essentially there to stay. Recent independent testing of a new paint range demonstrated no loss in antimicrobial performance even after 10 years of accelerated aging. Ionic silver based additives will not lose efficacy due to leaching or migration, and since they are evenly dispersed throughout the material even scratches and abrasion do not affect the antimicrobial performance.
Do cleaning products affect APL?
APL additives are embedded into the base material or coating and are therefore unaffected by abrasion or cleaning chemicals, such as chlorine bleach, disinfectants and alcohol. Even harsh industrial products, like MEK (methyl ethyl ketone), do not diminish the antimicrobial properties of products containing APL.
The antimicrobial technology does not protect the user or others against disease causing organisms. The technology is not a substitute for good hygiene/and or cleaning practices.
Most common microscope objectives come in the following types:
Usually contain one or a pair of lenses and correct for colour and have a good flat field. If there are aberrations, they occur in the outer area of the image.
Semi Plan objectives
Contain one or more (achromatic) lens elements and have an extended flat field. Semi Plan objectives have an improved resolution.
Correct even better for colour and spherical aberration than semi plan objectives. Plan objectives have an excellent flat field and are recommended when used in conjunction with a camera.
Designed for colour and spherical aberration correction.
