Ecolab Bioquell BQ-EMS

Bioquell BQ-EMS

An ambulance can host many patients in a short period of time. In this confined space, ineffective cleaning can spread microorganisms and increase the risk of infection for patients and staff. 

Help eliminate microorganisms with Ecolab’s Bioquell BQ-EMS. This portable bio-decontamination system uses hydrogen vapor to to produce a 6-log sporicidal kill on exposed surfaces.

Features of Bioquell BQ-EMS

  1. Control Panel
    Kept in a hardwearing case and placed outside the vehicle, the panel wirelessly controls the vaporizer and aeration units. Enter the volume of the area to be bio-decontaminated, and start the cycle with the push of a button.
  2. Hydrogen Peroxide Vaporizer
    This lightweight, mobile piece of equipment disperses the hydrogen peroxide vapor onto exposed surface in the enclosed area.
  3. Aeration Units
    After the bio-decontamination phase is complete, two high-powered aeration units rapidly remove hydrogen peroxide vapor from the enclosed area. This leaves the area free from residues and odors.
  4. Handheld Sensor
    Safety is paramount for Ecolab. This low-level hydrogen peroxide sensor is used to confirm that no vapor is escaping during a cycle, and to ensure the area is safe to enter after a cycle.

Use Even on Sensitive Electronics and Equipment

Our hydrogen peroxide vapor is tough on microbial surface contaminants, but gentle on electronics and equipment. Unlike spray-and-wipe methods, there are no additional steps to remove residue. When you need to bio-decontaminate spaces that contain hard-to-clean equipment, Bioquell is ideal. Before using Bioquell on your electronic equipment, check with the manufacturers to confirm compatibility.
