Controlled Contamination Services (CCS) uses Ionized Particle Fogging (IPF), an innovative technology that provides residue free decontamination and 6-log bio-burden reduction by delivering an activated hydrogen peroxide solution for effective bio-decontamination where reduction of biological load is critical. IPF produces a reactive oxygen species to kill bacteria, mold, spores and viruses on all indoor and outdoor spaces. Traditional fogging methods use carcinogens that can leave corrosive residue or a vaporized hydrogen peroxide that depends on an H202 vapor for decontamination.
This technology consists of 7.8% hydrogen peroxide. The reactive oxygen species (ROS), hydroxyls and free radicals used in the IPF method react with the double bonds, proteins and lipids in microorganisms on contact; stripping them away and lycing the cells.
This effectively destroys the organisms on a physical level, not just a biological level, leaving no chance for future strains to develop immunity to the decontamination process. Once the decontamination process is complete, the hydrogen peroxide denatures and disseminates into oxygen and water within minutes, leaving no residue or by-products.
IPF provides an effective means of decontamination, disinfection and infection control of all surfaces within a controlled environment.
IPF can achieve 6-log organism reduction on:
- Staphylococcus aureus (Staphylococcus) (Staph) (ATCC # 6538),
- Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pseudomonas) (ATCC # 15442)
- Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) (ATCC #33592)
- Influenza A (H1N1) virus (ATCC VR-1469)
IPF is compatible with a variety of materials and has no damaging effects on your environment, facility or assets.
This single applicator surface unit enables disinfection of all surfaces including high touch, sensitive medical equipment, and electronics.
