Bags – The Ultimate Breeding Ground For Germs

Pop quiz time. Which carries more germs?

A. Your toilet's flush
B. A personal handbag

Answer "A" sounds like the obvious answer, but it's wrong according to a recent UK study. According to Dr. Charles Gerba, a microbiologist at the University of Arizona, one third of handbags contain fecal matter.

It turns out that handbags aren't the only types of bags teeming with dangerous microbes. A recent norovirus outbreak was traced back to reusable grocery bags.

As it turns out, certain characteristics--the ability to trap moisture, keep sunlight out, among other things--make bags the ideal breeding haven for bacteria, viruses, and other microbes.

If you're a medical professional, you run the risk of bringing dangerous microbes home to your family or bringing household microbes to work--where people are already vulnerable to illness.

Antibacterial Bags Can Still Harbor Dangerous Germs

We've seen many brands of bags that tout themselves as "antibacterial" as much as possible. The makers of these bags are keenly aware of one important fact...most people think that "antibacterial" means that it protects against all germs.

But these bags only protect against bacteria--just one type of microbe. There are many other germs that make people sick, such as mold, funguses, and viruses. In fact, some of the toughest, most dangerous "germs" aren't bacteria at all. Take the "norovirus" that we mentioned above.

According to Dr. William Schaffner:

"Noroviruses -- which cause an estimated 21 million cases of gastroenteritis a year, some 70,000 hospitalizations and 800 deaths -- is that they’re tough bugs that can live for prolonged periods on objects and surfaces [...] they have the capacity to persist in the environment."

We've seen many brands of bags that tout themselves as "antibacterial" as much as possible. The makers of these bags are keenly aware of one important fact...most people think that "antibacterial" means that it protects against all germs.

This is why we created New Gear Medical Bags, the only antimicrobial medical bags in the world. It was designed by medical doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals because we want to keep our family and our patients germ-free.

New Gear Medical Bags: The Safest Medical Bag in the World

 

When we designed New Gear Medical Bags we thought endlessly about two things.

The first is safety. Antimicrobial material is weaved into the bag DURING the manufacturing process. Any microbe--bacteria, viruses, mold, and all others--that come into contact with the bag will be unable to grow and quickly die.

The second is design. We understand the modern medical professional lifestyle because we are medical professionals. We knew that we kept these three facts in mind when creating our bags: 

  • It's important to carry all of your medical supplies in one place so that you don't have to pack and repack them. This means having ample space and compartments.

  • Supplies should be accessible incredibly quickly in case of emergency. In life and death situations time is of the essence and there is no time to dig around for things.

  • Bags need to look slick and professional. As someone in the healthcare field, you don’t want to look like you’re carrying around a school backpack.

We took great care to implement all of these things into our medical bags and accessories. That is why we’re used by doctors, nurses, EMT and paramedics, medical assistants, vet techs, physical therapists, and just about every healthcare profession you can think of.

Don't risk exposing patients and loved ones to dangerous germs.
