    ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Seal Shield LLC today introduced
 the new SILVER SEAL(TM) Washable, Antimicrobial Mouse at the HiMSS
 Healthcare Symposium in Orlando, FL. According to the company, the SILVER
 SEAL(TM) Mouse is the world's first computer mouse to be fully submersible,
 dishwasher safe, and manufactured from SILVER SEAL(TM) Antimicrobial
 plastic. The new SILVER SEAL(TM) mouse has been created to help reduce the
 risk of cross contaminations, including Influenza and the "superbug," MRSA.
 The new SILVER SEAL(TM) Mouse is a companion product to the company's
 SILVER SEAL(TM) Washable, Antimicrobial Keyboard, which began shipping
 earlier this month.
     Influenza (the flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by
 influenza viruses. It can cause severe illness, and can lead to death.
 According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control), 5% to 20% of the
 population gets the flu annually; more than 200,000 people are hospitalized
 from flu complications, and about 36,000 people die from flu. Bacterial
 infections can occur as co-infections with influenza or occur following
 influenza infection. Last year, CDC noted an increase in flu and
 Staphylococcus aureus (staph infection) co-infections among children who
 had died or were hospitalized with influenza infection. Some of those
 infections were with the antibiotic resistant "superbug," MRSA.
     SILVER SEAL(TM) protects against infections. Unlike other antibacterial
 products, the SILVER SEAL(TM) antimicrobial plastic utilizes all natural,
 pure silver ions embedded in the plastic to create a safe and effective
 antimicrobial solution. Silver is a natural antibacterial product and its
 properties have been incorporated into the SILVER SEAL(TM) Keyboard using
 state of the art, nanotechnology. The combination of SILVER SEAL(TM)
 plastic and SEAL SHIELD(TM) washable technology results in the highest
 level of cross contamination protection available in an input device today.
     "The new SILVER SEAL(TM) Mouse is the best in class infection control
 mouse on the market. It is manufactured with an ergonomic shape for maximum
 comfort and ease of use, but it is unique in that it is ANTIMICROBIAL and
 DISHWASHER SAFE," states Seal Shield CEO, Brad Whitchurch. "The SILVER
 SEAL(TM) Mouse is the perfect companion to our already popular, SILVER
 SEAL(TM) Washable, Antimicrobial Keyboard. The SILVER SEAL(TM) Keyboard and
 Mouse are the most effective infection control input devices on the market
     Seal Shield is currently accepting orders for the SILVER SEAL(TM)
 Mouse, which will begin shipping in March. The SILVER SEAL(TM) Mouse has a
 suggested retail price of $69.99, with a street price of approximately $40
 when purchased through authorized distributors including Dell, CDW,
 Corporate Express, Insight, Synnex and other resellers.
