Large-Scale Bio-Decontamination With Hydrogen Peroxide VaporSource: Bioquell Inc.
Use of hydrogen peroxide vapor (HPV) is a recognized and recommended solution for the decontamination of small aseptic processing enclosures. Due to the historic limitations and lack of understanding of this technology, other larger scale applications have often not been considered. However, over the last 20 years Bioquell has developed world leading expertise in the bio-decontamination of large areas including hospitals, biomedical facilities, pharmaceutical production areas and bio-containment facilities. This paper discusses a service-based approach to large scale decontamination and the benefits hydrogen peroxide vapor technology can offer.
Bio-decontamination of large scale areas in a life science environment is a complex process that requires careful planning. The following paper highlights some of the key areas of focus and discusses the role hydrogen peroxide vapor (HPV) technology plays in helping to ensure a clean environment.
Different market sectors and different companies have different criteria for implementing new bio-decontamination technology. When deciding on the best process to employ, particularly for large scale operations, the following issues should be evaluated.
