Bioquell launches next-generation hydrogen peroxide vapour microbial eradication technology

BQ-50 is compact and automatically assesses all the influencing variables including room size and humidity level

The latest-generation BQ-50 automated room disinfection unit

The latest-generation BQ-50 automated room disinfection technology from UK bio-decontamination specialist Bioquell uses hydrogen peroxide vapour (HPV) technology to eradicate pathogens. It works by depositing an even layer of ‘micro-condensation’ of HPV over all surfaces to eradicate the bugs. It now offers short cycle times, is simple to use and is a compact/portable size.

Bioquell says these innovations enable hospitals to decontaminate patient rooms more quickly, enhancing patient flow without compromising infection control practices. The system is ready to work at the touch of a button – no more data entry is required as the machine automatically assesses all the influencing variables including room size and humidity level.

Ease of use has also been improved by reducing the number of cables and enabling wifi communication between the master vaporising generator, the aeration units and the command centre lectern. The size of the units has been significantly reduced to help provide easier handling around the hospital. Finally, the process of using the liquid sterilant has also been optimised to avoid any wastage.

George Olden, Bioquell's newly appointed BQ-50 Product Manager, said: 'We are very excited about the launch of the BQ-50. We’ve been working closely with the healthcare sector to come up with a decontamination solution that fits their needs. Our earlier products began our eliminate doubt crusade but the BQ-50 takes decontamination to the next level for hospitals.'

Bioquell's HPV process provides residue-free, safe and repeatable sterilisation of rooms, buildings, equipment and sensitive electronics. It is a clear alternative when replacing traditional decontaminants such as formaldehyde or chlorine-based products.
