About Ecolab’s Bioquell

In hospitals, pharmaceutical manufacturing plants, labs and cleanrooms, reducing the risk of microbial contamination is vital. You need a reliable way to bio-decontaminate your facilities and equipment. Bioquell solutions empower you to improve product and patient safety, meet regulatory and compliance requirements, and reach maximum operational efficiency.

  • Effective
    Bioquell bio-decontamination equipment uses 35% aqueous hydrogen peroxide to produce hydrogen peroxide vapor, which achieves a 6-log sporicidal kill on exposed, non-porous surfaces. This process kills a wide range of microorganisms including bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores.

  • Trusted
    Bioquell is used in healthcare and life science facilities around the world to bio-decontaminate operating rooms, patient rooms, pharmaceutical manufacturing centers, and more.
  • Regulatory Compliance
    Ecolab supports Bioquell technology with professional validation, maintenance and customer service. Bio-decontamination with Bioquell hydrogen peroxide vapor meets or exceeds regulatory standards around the world, including the European Biocidal Product Regulation (BPR).

The Hydrogen Peroxide Vapor
Bio-decontamination Process

Bioquell uses hydrogen peroxide vapor to bio-decontaminate a space in a few simple steps.
Ecolab Bioquell Bio-decontamination Process: Preparation, Vaporization, Activation Period and Aeration

1: Preparation

Prep the room for bio-decontamination: seal vents, and open any cabinets and drawers that require treatment. Seal the door after you exit, then turn on the Bioquell equipment.

2: Vaporization

The system emits the vapor, filling the enclosed area. It deposits a micro-condensation on exposed surfaces, including complex shapes and crevices.

3: Activation Period

Once vaporization is complete, a waiting period allows the hydrogen peroxide time to kill microorganisms on surfaces.

4: Aeration

Lastly, your HVAC system and/or Bioquell aeration units convert the H2O2 into water vapor and oxygen. There are no additional steps to remove residue—the room is ready now ready for use.
