Joanna'sTipsForStayingHealthyina911CommCenter Cold and Flu Season is HERE! And if you have already caught a cold like me, the first thing you might do is blame your co-worker, significant other, your child or maybe even your work schedule. Fortunately, there are a few ways you can stay healthy this season.

Antimicrobial Laminate

Shared work spaces definitely warrant LysolClorox and other disinfecting wipes. But if you are looking for added protection, 

try Xybix’s antimicrobial laminate. This laminate used on work surfaces, uses silver ions that are built into it to help protect against the growth of bacteria and germs. A good example of this laminate protection is shown in a video by Microban. Here you can clearly see, the side that is protected inhibits the growth where as on the other side the microorganisms multiply and increase in number.

Airborne Germ Eliminator

So what about the germs in the air? Xybix has an airborne germ eliminating device we call the Airborne Germ Eliminator (or Germilator if you say it too quickly), sometimes referred to as a “flux capacitor” (think Back To The Future), which uses UVC light to kill germs and bacteria in the air. It circulates about 1300 cubic feet of air. This UVC air filter device helps eliminates airborne things like:

  • Mold Spores
  • Germs
  • Viruses

Joanna’s Tips to Staying Healthy

If you already have a cold like me, you might be wondering how to fight it? Here are a few tips I use myself to try and “kick the cold”:

  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Sneeze into the crook of your elbow
  • Take Emergen-C
  • Up your fluid intake
  • Get lots of Vitamin C through foods and juices
  • Try eating citrus, garlic, or ginger
  • Drink hot water with lemon and honey

As always, if you have any questions about Xybix's antimicrobial products, please feel free to reach out to your local sales rep or contact Xybix today!
