Bioquell’s HPV technology provides a rapid and repeatable way of decontaminating portable medical equipment, especially sensitive electronics, which are often identified as a significant challenge for hospitals.
The bio-decontamination of medical equipment that has been compromized by nosocomial pathogens is of key importance - Bioquell's hydrogen peroxide vapor decontamination system is able to eliminate HAI from all exposed surfaces and high touch sites, without affecting either the performance or aesthetics of the equipment.
The decontamination of portable medical equipment, especially sensitive electronics, presents a significant issue for hospitals. Not only is the equipment physically difficult to clean, but the responsibility for doing so is often poorly-defined and there is much debate over the efficiency of having clinical staff perform this duty.
To exacerbate matters, there are many cases where bleach cleaning is warranted, but hospitals are understandably unwilling to risk using bleach on sensitive electronics for fear of causing damage.
Bioquell provides a rapid solution for equipment decontamination, providing the facility to decontaminate entire areas full of equipment without any deleterious effects.
Have manufacturers approved the use of Bioquell with their equipment?
Unfortunately, this research has not been done; however, Bioquell has now decontaminated over 60,000 hospital rooms, most of which contain sensitive electronic equipment with no deleterious effects. Further, each Bioquell cycle exposes the Siemens electronics platform upon which the system is based, to the decontamination process, and there have been no issues of degredation.
