Antimicrobial and Alcohol-wipe Resistant Microphones

Olympus Professional Dictation offers antimicrobial and alcohol-wipe resistant dictation devices that can reduce exposure to viruses and other microbes for those on the frontline of duty. Doctors and Healthcare workers can benefit from Olympus' commitment to making lives healthier and safer.

The Olympus RecMic II is a range of special handheld USB microphones, which have an anti-microbial housing with embedded Polygiene technology. Polygiene antimicrobial technology is based on the natural ability of silver to inhibit the growth of microbes. The Polygiene silver compound is added during the manufacturing process, and Polygiene silver ions are released at the surface, which deactivates the microbes upon contact with the product's surface. The RecMic II USB microphone together with the Polygiene technology has been tested to ISO 22196* standard (Measurement of antibacterial activity on plastics and other non-porous surfaces). The test results showed that all tested microbes were reduced on the surface by over 99.5%.

The RecMic II is also alcohol-wipe resistant, allowing users to keep the device clean in a medical or other environment. Ethanol (76.9 to 81.4 v/v%) or isopropanol (70 v/v%) can be used to disinfect the surface of the RecMic II.
