and MRSA

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Seal Shield LLC, today
 introduced the SILVER SEAL FLEX(TM) Keyboard, the world's first keyboard
 that is fully submersible, dishwasher safe, antimicrobial and glows in the
 dark. Recent studies have shown computer keyboards to be a major source of
 cross contamination infections. According to Dr. Charles Gerba, University
 of Arizona, "the average keyboard harbors 400 times more bacteria than the
 average toilet seat."
     The SILVER SEAL FLEX(TM) Keyboards have been created to help reduce the
 risk of worldwide cross contaminations, including Norovirus and the
 "superbug," MRSA. SILVER SEAL FLEX(TM) is made from soft silicon for a
 comfortable typing experience. It is completely flexible and can be rolled
 up or folded, making it ideal for mobile applications. The SILVER SEAL
 FLEX(TM) keyboard combines SEAL SHIELD(TM) waterproof technology (Patent
 Pending) and Silver Seal Antimicrobial protection, making the SILVER SEAL
 FLEX(TM) the only silicon keyboard to be fully submersible, Dishwasher Safe
 and Antimcirobial.
     Unlike many antibacterial products, SILVER SEAL FLEX(TM) utilizes all
 natural, pure silver ions which are embedded in the silicon to create a
 safe, effective, inorganic, antimicrobial solution. The combination of
 SILVER SEAL(TM) silicon and SEAL SHIELD(TM) washable technology results in
 the highest level of cross contamination protection available in an input
 device today.
     The SILVER SEAL FLEX(TM) is also the first keyboard to utilize the
 company's new SEAL GLOW(TM) backlight and Quick Connect(TM) features. SEAL
 GLOW(TM) backlight can be turned on in low light or no light environments,
 allowing this portable keyboard to be used anywhere, any time. Quick
 Connect(TM) allows the keyboard to be easily washed without the user having
 to disconnect the cable from the computer. Quick Connect consists of a 6
 inch keyboard cable connected to a separate 8 foot USB patch cable. Users
 can easily move the keyboard between multiple computers and customize cable
 lengths to support their applications.
     "The new SILVER SEAL FLEX(TM) Keyboard represents a combination of the
 best infection control technologies. Never before have so many features
 been included in a single input device," states Scott Filion, Seal Shield
 Vice President of Business Development. According to Filion, "There are
 many silicon keyboards on the market, but only SILVER SEAL FLEX(TM)
 Keyboards are dishwasher safe, antimicrobial, and backlit."
     The SILVER SEAL FLEX(TM) Keyboard sells for $49.99 MSRP. SEAL SHIELD
 infection control solutions are distributed internationally by CDW, CDWG,
 Corporate Express, DELL, Insight and other reseller partners.
