UV GERM Cuddle Bug

UV GERM Cuddle Bug


A great training aid to demonstrating cross-contamination in action. Available in: UV Green, UV Red and UV Blue.

Too cute for it’s own good, the new UV GERM Cuddle-Bug almost demands to be picked-up or stroked…

…But as soon as you do, your hands will be discreetly coated with an invisible layer of UV GERM Hygiene Training Powder; harmless microscopic particles which simulate microbial contamination and cross-contamination.  Place a ‘prepared’ Cuddle-Bug somewhere in the Training Room, Kitchenette or Washroom and wait as curious attendees pick her up and inadvertently ‘touch-contaminate‘ themselves; their colleagues and their surroundings. Later in the session, use with a UV Forensic Torch or inside a Showbox to reveal the truth, as the full extent of the cross-contamination becomes clear to see, and all from a single source! That innocent, cute looking Cuddle-Bug. Suitable for use in Hazmat and bio-hazard training too.

Available in: UV Green, UV Red and UV Blue to easily identify the originating source of contamination for multi-source demonstrations.

For best results, expose to UV light (not included) in a darkened environment.

How to use

1 . Place cuddle-bug in the clear poly-bag and using the small scoop (supplied) add one level scoop of Powder into the bag.

2. Seal the bag and shake vigorously to impregnate the fur of the Cuddle-Bug.

3. Remove the Cuddle-bug and place in position.

After training session, place the Cuddle Bug into the poly-bag and seal ready for the next session.

Depending on the amount of use, the Cuddle Bug should only require re-powdering occasionally.

For best results, expose to UV light in a darkened environment.

Important Information

Requires a UV Light source (Not supplied) to activate UV GERM Powder.

Note:  UV LED based Black lights do not always emit the correct frequencies required to fully activate these powders and emit far too much ‘visible light’ (known as spill) which can over-power the resultant fluorescent glow.  For best performance we recommend using UV Forensic Pro Torch with these powders.

Additional UV GERM Training Powder may be ordered on our web site.

Available in: UV Green, UV Red and UV Blue

Please Note:  The Cuddle Bug should NOT be thrown, only passed hand-to-hand or left in situ.
