The Bioquell Q-10 is a hydrogen peroxide vapour (HPV) bio-decontamination system which can be used to bio-decontaminate rooms, laboratories and hospital wards/units in a non-regulated environment.
The video below demonstrates how Bioquell's HPV technology has helped Johns Hopkins Hospital in the fight against superbugs.

Recent data provide compelling evidence that contaminated surfaces are an important factor in the cross-transmission of pathogens causing some healthcare associated infections, for example, Clostridium difficile, Acinetobacter baumannii and norovirus. This white paper summarises the data and reviews evidence that nosocomial pathogens are shed by patients, can contaminate hospital surfaces, can survive for extended periods, can persist despite attempts to disinfect or remove them and can be transferred to the hands of healthcare workers (HCWs). The ways in which hospital hygiene could be improved are also discussed.
This white paper examines two different hydrogen peroxide-based room decontamination systems: hydrogen peroxide vapour (HPV) and aerosolised hydrogen peroxide (aHP).
NHS hospitals - and indeed hospitals around the world - are now facing a substantial and major problem with a new ’superbug’ commonly referred to as a CPE (otherwise known as CRE).
The questions and answers below are designed to explain why CPE is the ‘real deal’ – and why it has the potential to be a major problem. It is not just another ‘superbug’. It could change modern healthcare around the globe.
In March 2009, an outbreak of an unusual strain of Clostridium difficile affected a care of the elderly (COE) ward.
