Acer expands its "antimicrobial" range. Zoom / Acer's Enduro Urban N3 (top) is also available in blue. Acer's "antimicrobial" laptops have been in use for several years, but they seem very relevant when the COVID-19 pandemics are at their worst. Locks and restrictions have since been reduced around the world, but Acer has not reduced its investment in antimicrobial technology. At today's upcoming Acer event, the company revealed three new computers - a laptop, two in one and a tablet - that will join its antimicrobial group.
What does "antimicrobial" mean anyway?
A germ is a beautiful word that denotes a microorganism or germ. If something can be considered "antimicrobial" to kill or prevent the growth of microorganisms, especially pathogenic microorganisms. This means that it fights the things the disease causes. High-touch surfaces - such as the outer hinges, chassis, keyboard, touch screen, and fingerprint reader - are covered with a silver ion agent. Research over the years has shown that silver ions have the ability to fight bacteria. As explained in a recent report published in ACS Applied Bio Materials, "It can be readily absorbed into most biological molecules (DNA, membrane proteins, enzymes or intracellular cofactors) in bacteria to disrupt their function." Be.”
Silver containing Acer ions is compatible with both BPR and EPA, and according to the ISO 22196 test protocol, the number of bacteria will be reduced after a 99.9% reduction to 1000 people. The specification specifies Standard 22196 Test methods for “the antibacterial activity of antibacterial-treated plastics and other non-porous surfaces of products.” Product production. “This is done by passing a small amount of silver ions onto the surface of the glass to kill surface bacteria, while offering other benefits such as improved durability and resistance,” says Acer. improved scratching."
Acer introduced new antimicrobial PCs to its portfolio in 2020, but they haven't been added to the list yet. An Acer spokesperson told Ars Technica that the company sees its antimicrobial coating expanded" Across multiple product lines." Zoom / Acer TravelMate Spin P4.Acer
