Silver contains antimicrobial additives – this has been known since the time of the Pharaohs. Silver has been used for thousands of years to help prevent the growth of bacteria without the high toxicity associated with other metals. In medieval France they plated entire hospital wards in Silver to help heal and protect patients from any harmful bacteria.
However in today’s society we use silver a little bit differently. For example you will find it in topical gels to treat serious burns and in coated dressings to aid wound healing. In 2000, Biomaster pioneered the use of silver based antibacterial additives and is now the recognised leader in antibacterial additive technology. Biomaster antimicrobial technology is incorporated in the majority ETI products during the manufacturing process, ensuring lifelong protection against the risk of bacterial cross contamination. As well as being harmful to health, outbreaks of food poisoning can damage brands, and the reputation of stores, food producers and restaurants. Read more

We all buy thermometers without calibration and assume that the manufacturer has been conscientious enough to supply an accurate instrument. The only way of […]
For many years Rare Burgers have been the subject of much debate. Is colour a good indicator? What contamination risks are there? Are rare burgers safe to eat? The main cause of controversy is the fact that burgers are minced and during burger manufacture it is not only the outside of the meat that […]
Bed & Breakfast is fast becoming the most popular way to enjoy the most relaxed way of seeing this wonderful country of ours. Yet many do not appreciate the hidden dangers that are associated with providing accommodation. Temperature monitoring and control can make a huge difference to the comfort and well-being of the […]
To kill the pathogens that can cause food poisoning, foods need to be cooked to a high enough temperature, and either to be kept hot until served for eating, or to be rapidly cooled and refrigerated. This is because, although thorough cooking kills most bacteria, spores of some can survive this cooking. These spores do […]
