Environmental Decontamination for Healthcare

Trinity Medical is an approved and authorised agent for the provision of specialist decontamination services using chlorine dioxide dry gas sterilisation.   Owing to a multitude of unique features and benefits, chlorine dioxide dry gas sterilisation is fast becoming the preferred method of decontamination for the Healthcare, Pharmaceutical & Scientific industries.

Relevant to Healthcare facilities, Chlorine Dioxide is the ideal sterilant for targeting nosocomial outbreaks such as clostridium difficile or catalase expressing staphylococci.  Our fumigating systems provide fast and effective means to decontaminate Theatres, Wards, Patient Rooms, Pharmacies, Laboratories and Ambulances.  As a dry gas, there are no harmful residues after fumigation, and all electronic / electrical equipment* can be left in situ during the process.  The decontamination cycle is constantly monitored using spectrophotometry, allowing real-time sampling.  This means that at an exact time during fumigation, we can guarantee that the correct dose levels have be administered for achieving a log 6 reduction.  Similarly, through spectrophotometry we can provide assurances to staff that there is no residual gas in the environment.   This parametric insight provides hard evidence that the target space has been adequately decontaminated, and that the environment is safe to reopen/reoccupy.

Applications:

  • Hospital / Healthcare Facilities
  • Scientific & Laboratory Facilities (Human & Animal Health)
  • Pharma & Medical Device Manufacturing
  • Contract Sterilisation & Consulting

DESCRIPTION

SAFE & ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

ClO2 Dry gas is non-carcinogenic, non-explosive, leaves no residues and has an odour at a safe concentration. Once aerated, ClO2 breaks down in UV to environmentally friendly by-products. Unlike Ethylene oxide, it is not a derivative of petrochemicals nor is it a chlorinating agent like elemental chlorine. Toxic pollutants such as trihalomethanes (THM`s) are not emitted during this process.

POWERFUL STERILISER

An EPA registered steriliser, dry gas chlorine dioxide eliminates all forms of microbial life, providing >106 log reduction of all organisms including bacterial spores, small round viruses, catalase expressing organisms, such as Mycobacteria and parasites such as pinworm.

COMPLETE DISTRIBUTION AND PENETRATION

Being a true gas at standard temperature and pressure and having a particle size of 125 picometres, all surfaces within an area will be exposed to the correct amount of ClO2 for sterilisation regardless of area contents, size or temperature gradient. Following Henrys law, ClO2 does not disassociate in liquids and will sterilise spillages with equal efficacy.

RAPID AND FLEXIBLE

Our ClO2 has the fastest cycle time of any fumigant, fumigating whole facilities in <3 hours. With a rapid aeration and no clean up, dry gas ClO2 allows for instant re-use of target areas. Up to 15 areas can be decontaminated at one time, providing an improvement in throughput as well as speed.

FULLY MONITORED PROCESS

The ClO2 concentration is monitored in real-time using spectrophotometer for each cycle. This immediate parametric validation that the required exposure time was achieved and the cycle was a success, this also confirms areas as safe to re-enter. Providing an option to move away from routine use of Biological Indicators.

NON-CORROSIVE

Chlorine Dioxide is not corrosive, however, previous ClO2 technologies include a “wet” generation method that yields corrosive residual acidic by-product’s. ClO2 itself is not corrosive. Unlike these previous technologies, our ClO2 is produced as a dry gas meaning no acidic residues are exposed to the target environment.
