MicrobeCare™ is an antimicrobial treatment that effectively controls bacteria, fungi, algae, and yeast on a wide variety of Herman Miller products. It kills 99.99% of microbes and prevents microbe mutation. MicrobeCare is safe and has recorded proven results in highly sensitive healthcare environments.

What does it do?

MicrobeCare reduces the spread of infection on the materials and surfaces of our products, keeping them germ-free in public areas, waiting spaces, offices, and sensitive healthcare environments.

How does it do it?

  • Step 1: Cell membranes (microbes) are attracted to treated surfaces and punctured.

  • Step 2: Due to the positive and negative ion exchange, there is deep penetration into the core membrane.

  • Step 3: Physical rupture of the cell and electrocution by positively charged nitrogen molecules destroys the cell.

  • Colourless
  • Non-transferrable from surfaces

 Long Lasting

  • Accelerated Life Testing suggests that MicrobeCare will last at least 7 years on your Herman Miller product. Chemical and rub testing was conducted and showed minimal impact on fabrics.

Quick Application

  • MicrobeCare is applied to a complete assembly, protecting the entire product, and all surfaces. The entire process takes only a few minutes.

Cost Effective

  • Adding MicrobeCare protection to a Herman Miller product is a low-cost way to enhance your infection prevention program. In most cases, MicrobeCare adds less than five to seven percent to the total cost.
