About Us


The Cu Innotech GmbH (former FroFitz & Friends GmbH) was founded in 2009 based on the development of the CopperProtect™ AntiGermFoil™ which should provide a passive surface protection to contain a possible pandemic of the H1N1 virus. The resulting technology is highly active against all currently known germs with a certified strong antimicrobial effect on the dangerous MRSA. The AntiGermFoils can be easily retrofitted and are comparably cost-effective. Furthermore the technology is patent pending worldwide.

Cu Innotech offers solutions for infection control such as antibacterial surface systems as a passive and permanent protection against germs. This is marketed under the trademark CopperProtect™. Furthermore, Cu Innotech works as a consulting company in the hygiene sector.

The network of Cu Innotech consists of institutions and experts in the sectors of copper, material technology and hygiene, including the German Copper Institute, the INM Leibniz Institute for New Materials, Dr. Andreas Schneider and Prof. Dr. Marc Solioz.
