Reading, UK-based Bullitt Group, makers of military-grade smartphones and the global licensee for Cat® phones, has launched the first fully antimicrobial mobile phone - the Cat S42. The entry-level Android smartphone with antimicrobial protection is designed for military use but is now also available to the public. Every exterior component of the product including the screen made from Corning Gorilla Glass 5s has been treated with Biomaster antimicrobial technology and tested to ISO 22196. Biomaster technology inhibits the growth of microbes on the phone surface offering protection for the lifetime of the unit. Research shows that mobile phones harbour thousands of germs, with one University of Michigan study finding in excess of 17,000 bacteria on handsets. According to research from Deloitte, on average we interact with our mobile devices around 47 times daily.
