THE LATEST IN TOUCH - CleanScreen
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

CleanScreen, Antibacterial Protection for Touchscreens, is the world's first
touchscreen to incorporate antibacterial technology to control bacteria and
microorganisms on the surface of the touchscreen. 

CleanScreen is the result of a technology partnership between AEGIS
Environments and MicroTouch Systems that incorporates the proven AEGIS
Microbe Shield into the surface of the touchscreen. And, since CleanScreen
is part of the touchscreen's surface, the AEGIS Antimicrobial cannot be
rubbed or worn off during use and will provide antibacterial protection for
the life of the touchscreen.

AEGIS' Microbe Shield technology, commercially available since 1976 and
based on technology developed and tested by Dow Corning Corporation, can be
found in a wide array of consumer and medical hygiene products, including
disposable wipes and diapers, active wear, athletic socks, scrubbing
sponges, and hospital surgery drapes.

CleanScreen provides users a new level of confidence that the surface of the
touchscreen is protected from contaminants.
