GERMICIDAL UV-C DISINFECTION OF DIRTY BANKNOTES, TICKETS - CURRENCY MEDIA

Dirty cash: germs our banknotes can carry

Center for Genomics and Systems Biology, Department of Biology, New York University, published an article “Filthy lucre: A metagenomic pilot study of microbes found on circulating currency in New York City” where a total of 397 bacterial species representing more than 20 bacterial phyla were identified across aggregate banknote samples obtained from various location in New York City. The study stated that “paper currency by its very nature is frequently transferred from one person to another and represents an important medium for human contact with and potential exchange of microbes.”

Most dollar bills are teeming with bacteria

It is well established through scientific studies and laboratory testing across the Globe that banknotes serve as a fomite, an inanimate vehicle by which pathogens can be spread and some of them are health hazard. You’d be hard-pressed not to handle a US dollar bill that wasn’t teeming with microbes. Tests have shown that as many as 94% of dollar bills in circulation are contaminated with some levels of bacteria. 

Persistence of pathogens on surfaces
●● Paper currency and coins may be a public health risk when associated with
the simultaneous handling of food and could lead to the spread of nosocomial infections.
Currency notes
●● Cotton-based banknotes provide a fibrous surface, which provides ample opportunity for bacterial attachment, and the longer a paper bill stays in circulation, the more opportunity there is for it to become contaminated.
●● Various bacteria, yeasts, fungi, cysts and ova of intestinal parasites have been isolated from money worldwide. [See Citation below ⇓]

AMROTEC's own Patented technology and method [U.S Patent # 1,1,321,988)]

(Videos are for illustration purposes only. Germicidal UV-C LEDs shown on these videos for MIB-11UVC and MIB-9UVC models are not visible in actual equipment during operation. 

AMROTEC's Solution

⬛ AMROTEC’s Currency Discriminators model MIB-9″UVC” and MIB-11″UVC”  are equipped with AMROTEC’s own Patented technology and method [U.S Patent # 1,1,321,988)] of using Multi-Strips consisting of about 45 pieces of “GERMICIDAL” UV-C LEDs installed at the end of bill conveyor mechanism, invisible to operator’s eye and automatically emit Germicidal UV-C Rays downwardly on the passing banknotes. 

⬛ Banknotes get irradiated by UV-C rays and get disinfected instantly with about 75% ~ 80% efficacy in killing bacteria depending on models and types of bacteria, according to laboratory test performed in Texas with AMROTEC’s equipment.

⬛ AMROTEC’s UV-C Disinfect System is automatic and does not require user’s intervention to activate or deactivate. UV-C LEDs emit germicidal UV-C rays when machine starts processing Banknotes and get turned off when counting is completed.  

⬛ Although MIB-9 and MIB-11 “UVC” model denominate and process monies at a speed up to 1200 Notes per Minute and perform all original functionality of  currency discriminating counters, these “UVC” models are most effective in disinfecting banknotes at a speed of 800 Notes per minute. 

Process your monies with Currency Discriminators having Germicidal UV-C Disinfection System and provide additional protection to your cash handling employees.
