Chlorine Dioxide Gaseous Decontamination
Biosafety provides decontamination services for routine or single-time events. We offer contamination prevention/ control for new and existing facilities. Chlorine dioxide gas technology from ClorDiSys Solutions, allows for the complete decontamination of your facility, all at once, with minimal downtime and site disturbance. Our gaseous systems provide the ability to achieve complete gas distribution, to all surfaces within your facility. This complete penetration of chlorine dioxide, includes microscopic cracks and crevices and filter penetration, delivering an absolute level of decontamination, something vapours, mists, and fogs cannot promise. Our chlorine dioxide is safe on materials and leaves no post treatment residuals. Verification with real-time concentration monitoring and selective biological indicators is an integral part of our decontamination process.
Principles of Effective Decontamination
In order for any sterilant to be successful, it must reach all surfaces. For a true gas such as chlorine dioxide, its small molecular size, approximately 0.124 nm, and a natural ability to fill any space it is injected into, evenly and completely. This delivers unmatched distribution and contact of the sterilant.
In addition to complete distribution, the sterilant must be able to penetrate into all areas. Chlorine dioxide gas is a very “slippery gas”, swiftly mixing with the rooms atmosphere, making it easy to reach and penetrate filters, surfaces, microscopic cracks and crevices and even organic surface matter.
Once your sterilizing agent has distributed and penetrated into all areas, it must remain there long enough to provide the desired level of kill. Chlorine dioxide is a coloured gas, its concentration can be accurately measured and monitored in real-time allowing for tight control of important decontamination process parameters. Biological indicators are deployed to confirm the log level of decontamination required, generally > log 6.
Biosafety International provides Chlorine Dioxide services for:
Rooms and Partial Facilities
Decontamination Chamber and Rack Washer
HVAC Ductwork and HEPA Housings
Biological Safety Cabinets
Advantages to using Chlorine Dioxide:
ClorDiSys' CD Gas is an EPA registered sterilant
Compliant with Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 2243.3 Microbiological Containment and Safety
True gases are the only agents effective in hard to reach areas such as HVAC systems, cracks and crevices, and inside equipment due to their small molecular size and mobility
Non-carcinogenic, residue free process
Safe on materials such stainless steel, anodized aluminium, glass, painted steel, plastics, epoxy flooring and paints, gasket materials, and electronics
Effective against viruses, bacteria, fungi and spores as well as pinworms and their eggs
Validated against Beta Lactams including Penicillins, Cephalosporins, and Carbapenems
