Using Smart Phones with touchscreen is a craze to all age groups.We often use it,but very rarely we clean it.
“People are just as likely to get sick from their phones as from handles of the bathroom,” Jeffrey Cain, the president of the American Academy of Family Physicians, told the The Wall Street Journal.
A US firm have designed the world's first antimicrobial touch screen glass to protect you from bacteria.
Antimicrobial Gorilla Glass is designed to inhibit the growth of algae, mold, mildew, fungi, and bacteria on touch screens.
The firm Corning said its Antimicrobial Gorilla Glass is formulated with an antibacterial agent, ionic silver, which is incorporated into the glass surface for sustained activity. The glass can be installed in electronic devices such as computers, cellular phones, calculators, telephones, and other electronic display panels, the company said. According to Corning, as touch technologies proliferate, consumers are becoming aware of how bacteria can exist on mobiles.
"Corning's Antimicrobial Gorilla Glass inhibits the growth of algae, mold, mildew, fungi, and bacteria because of its built-in antimicrobial property, which is intrinsic to the glass and effective for the lifetime of a device," said James R Steiner, senior vice president and general manager, Corning Speciality Materials.
