CHAIR - Coalition for Healthcare Acquired Infection Reduction

Research

Company: ISO Canada

ISO Canada is developing an international standard on antimicrobial copper with CHAIR Canada and our colleagues from the University of British Columbia, University of Waterloo, Vancouver Coastal Health and other partners in Canada.

Company: University of Waterloo 

In partnership with CHAIR Canada, University of Waterloo will be starting a scientific investigation on how the electrical properties of copper kill bacteria and viruses plus how this electrical process can be enhanced or modified in the molecular properties of a copper alloy or other metals.  This may also lead to a second investigation on copper nano particles.

Company: Lambton College

The Bio-Industrial Process Research Centre (BPRC) at Lambton College in Sarnia is our newest CHAIR Canada member. Their Technology Access Centre (TAC) collaborates with industrial partners to support the development of new and optimization of existing bio focused technologies and processes in one of their four laboratories.
