Silver Coated Wall Panels for Hospitals Stop MRSA
Knowing that hospital-acquired MRSA infections kill between 15,000 and 19,000 patients a year, wouldn’t you feel safer going into a hospital that uses wall and ceiling panels coated with MRSA-killing antimicrobial silver nanoparticles?
I know I would. After all, it’s well-known that the deadly MRSA pathogen colonizes hospital walls, ceilings and other surfaces, and can easily infect patients with open wounds.
In fact, I’ve argued for years now that hospitals need to start employing antimicrobial silver far more liberally than they have been. Perhaps now, with this new innovation from Germany, they’ll finally begin to do so. Here’s the story…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…
According to the June 2015 issue of Silver News, a German company called Lamilux has invented wall panels coated with silver nanoparticles.
The fiber-reinforced plastic wall panels can easily be installed on the walls of hospital operating rooms, similar to the way tiles are laid on a floor.
The goal is to help prevent MRSA growth and other forms of bacterial contamination, which are common in operating rooms and which infect up to 94,000 hospital patients every year. News sources claim approximately 20% of the MRSA infections that go blood-borne result in the deaths of the patients, meaning these new panels have the potential to help stop approximately 18,000 hospital-caused deaths every year.
Clinical Trials in Germany
According to the Silver News, the new panels (i.e., wall tiles) are now undergoing clinical trials in Germany to see how effective they are. They wrote:
“Lamilux Composites GmbH of Rehau, Germany, is offering a fiber-reinforced plastic material with a nanosilver coating that company officials say mitigates germs within a few hours.
Initially developed as a wall coating for hospital operating rooms, the company’s AntiBac product was developed with Rent-a-Scientist, a Regensburg-based company that specializes in nanosilver research.
With the rise of multi-resistant germs in hospitals, sometimes lethal to patients, Lamilux officials note that one in particular – methycillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus or MRSA – appears regularly in operating rooms and can cause wound infections and respiratory inflammation that can lead to death. MRSA is resistant to many drugs.
In addition to clinical use, AntiBac can be used in the food industry in refrigerated warehouses, cold stores and refrigerated vehicles as well as in processing areas and slaughter houses, according to company officials.
The new composite is being tested at the Asklepios Clinic in Bad Abbach, Germany, where some parts of operating room walls have been covered with the anti-bacterial panels.”
The Lamilux company website claims the silver-coated panels represent, “…a new technologically-advanced composite material: a fibre-reinforced plastic, on the surface of which a nanosilver coating gives it an antibacterial effect and kills germs within just a few hours.”
Lamilux goes on to explain the reason for the development of the new silver-coated panels:
“Multi-resistant germs pose a major threat in hospitals and could be fatal for patients.
Clinics therefore permanently face the challenge of preventing the occurrence of dangerous hospital germs with targeted preventive and emergency hygiene measures.
…The new antibacterial LAMILUX material can in the future be used as wall and ceiling panels…it has been scientifically proven that dangerous germs die within a few hours.
In addition to clinical use, there are also numerous areas of application for the high-tech material, mainly in the food industry, where high hygiene standards need to be maintained and sterility is paramount.
…The material is being trialed in practice at the Asklepios Clinic in Bad Abbach, Germany. In some parts of the operating room, the walls have been covered with the anti-infective panels.”
Of course, this is not the first time antimicrobial silver has been employed to help staunch the epidemic of hospital-acquired MRSA infections.
According to the Colloidal Silver Cures MRSA website, “…hospitals in Britain have been testing pajamas and bed linen made of a special fabric that is impregnated with silver, as a means of stopping the spread of MRSA dead in its tracks…Over the course of the next year, the specially created fabrics are being used at the Lister Hospital in the city of Stevenage, in Hertfordshire, England.”
Says Dr. Peter Wilson, a consulting microbiologist for the above hospital, “A successful trial would transform the way we tackle certain infections, particularly MRSA…Silver is known to be a very efficient agent against infection and also very safe. These trials will mean we can prove its effectiveness.”
The Colloidal Silver Cures MRSA website also points out that according to the British newspaper, The Sun, “…a $250,000 machine has been developed to spray a special aerosol silver mist throughout British hospitals, in order to stop the spread of the deadly MRSA super pathogens.”
The Sun newspaper went on to state:
“Experts have long known silver is deadly to the superbug and is highly toxic to some other bacteria as well.
It is already used in plasters and hospital dressings. But now medics from Leicester University have created a generator that divides pieces of silver into billions of tiny particles.
It then suspends them in liquid glycerol to be put into aerosols. The particles are small enough to pass inside bacteria but do not kill human cells.
The $250,000 machine’s inventor, Professor Chris Binns, said medical trials will start within the year. He also believes the silver ‘bullets’ produced by his machine could be used to fight HIV.”

Of course, experienced colloidal silver users have known for years that safe, simple colloidal silver – which can be purchased in just about any well-stocked health food store, or even made at home with a colloidal silver generator – not only kills the MRSA pathogen, but can be used to help heal just about any bacterial, viral or fungal infection.
- For over 100 articles on colloidal silver’s profound infection-fighting qualities, see the Colloidal Silver Update page.
- To view over 100 clinical studies and medical white papers documenting colloidal silver’s astonishing ability to kill pathogens and heal infectious diseases, see the Colloidal Silver Clinical Studies page.
- Finally, to learn how thousands of experienced colloidal silver users are healing their own infections with colloidal silver, see the Colloidal Silver Testimonials page.
Those three web pages contain more good information on the healing and infection-fighting qualities of colloidal silver than you’ll find anywhere else on the internet. But if you want more, be sure to check out the Colloidal Silver Videos page, as well, for nearly two dozen “how to” videos on making and using colloidal silver.
The Good News!
As the Colloidal Silver Cures MRSA website goes on to point out:
“The truly good news is this: You don’t need a $500 pair of silver-laced pajamas or bed sheets, or a $100 set of silver-laced bandage dressings or even a $250,000 silver aerosol-making machine to take advantage of the phenomenal infection-fighting power of silver.
After all, pure, unadulterated, high-quality colloidal silver can be purchased at just about any health food store in America for about $30 for a four ounce bottle.
Or, high-quality colloidal silver can be made for a tiny fraction of that cost (about 36 cents a quart), quickly and easily, in the comfort and privacy of your own home, using a simple, safe, inexpensive, low-voltage Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge.
In fact, colloidal silver is so simple to make, anyone can do it. You simply fill a quart glass jar with pure distilled water (available at Wal-Mart for about a dollar a gallon), plug the machine in and set it on top of the glass jar so that two pure .999 fine silver rods dangle into the water.
Then you set the timer for three hours, and walk away. Yes, you just set it, and forget it. And three hours later it shuts off by itself and you have a perfect batch of the highest quality colloidal silver possible. It’s that simple!”
So Easy to Use!
Once made, it can then be taken orally, and/or applied with a simple pump spray bottle to cuts, burns, lacerations or any open wound, to stop a deadly MRSA infection from developing and getting into the blood stream.
You can even soak gauze bandages in colloidal silver and apply them to infected wounds for phenomenally rapid healing.
Or you can do what many of our readers tell us they have been doing and mix a little bit of inexpensive clay powder (available at any health food store) with a tablespoon of colloidal silver until it becomes the consistency of modeling clay, and then place it over an infected wound, or an inflamed carbuncle or boil, and put a piece of medical tape over it.
Do this before bed, once each evening, leaving it on all night for several days in a row, and watch how quickly the infection or inflammation goes away!
(Several years ago, your editor actually avoided surgery for a staph-infected boil by using this simple trick. Good thing, too, as the doctor wanted a whopping $750 to do with sharp instruments what yours truly did for less than 12 cents worth of colloidal silver and a couple of pennies worth of clay from a health food store. Here’s a short video demonstrating exactly how I did it. The bottom line is that it really works!)
If you get a serious internal infection and you prefer to use prescription antibiotics, why not ask your doctor about drinking a little colloidal silver along with them, just to make sure?
After all, MRSA and other infections from super pathogens are not something to mess around with. They can be a death sentence, and they are spreading rapidly into the population.
According to news reports, up to 30% of the people you come into contact with daily have MRSA actually living on their skin. That’s how prevalent it is, and that’s why health authorities worldwide are so worried.
The growth of MRSA and related superpathogen infections throughout the population is almost inevitable, because they’re so easily spread from person to person and from public contact surface (such as door handles, bathroom faucets, countertops, shopping carts, etc) to contact surface.
But as documented by the four clinical studies on silver and MRSA described in this article, colloidal silver truly does work against MRSA and other superbugs!
The bottom line is this: Just because the medical bureaucrats don’t want you to know about colloidal silver and its remarkable ability to heal MRSA infections, doesn’t mean you can’t take maximum protective advantage of it.
To learn more, be sure to read the article, Colloidal Silver Vanquishes Drug-Resistant Superbugs, where you’ll see brief synopsis of three clinical studies proving that colloidal silver kills up to 99.7% of drug-resistant superbugs, including the following:
- Streptococcus pyogenes
- Pseudomonas aeruginosa
- Staphylococcus aureus
- Escherichia coli
- Salmonella typhi
- Enterococcus faecium
- Klebsiella pneumonia
- Acinetobacter baumannii
- And over three dozen others!
So be sure to obtain a high-quality Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from the Silver Edge, so you can make all of the infection-fighting colloidal silver you want for less than 36 cents a quart. You can learn how to save $100 off the usual cost of a brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, here.
Meanwhile, I’ll be back next week with another insightful article on colloidal silver….
