In 2019, Bioquell, an Ecolab solution, was offered the opportunity to trial its latest development in automated room decontamination technology, the Bioquell ProteQ, at the world renowned St Thomas’ Hospital in London.
During the nine month trial, the Bioquell ProteQ performed over 460 room decontaminations faultlessly, and at one point the system was used non-stop over a 72 hour period to help combat an outbreak on the ICU. By providing 6-log decontamination cycles in patient rooms and larger critical areas like operating theatres, the Bioquell ProteQ played a key role in minimising the spread of healthcare acquired infections within the hospital.Download
An animal research facility at University College Cork Ireland required high-level decontamination to remove any potential bioburden from the two story facility after the refurbishment was completed, and before the facility was going live. The Bioquell Rapid Bio Decontamination Service (RBDS) was chosen to perform a 6-log kill sporicidal reduction with hydrogen peroxide vapour decontamination of the entire facility including its dedicated HVAC system which took place overnight.Download
An industrial biotechnology company producing injectable vaccines in Denmark was looking to introduce more rigorous control measures to
ensure a high level of bio-decontamination in its facility. Commissioning Bioquell’s Rapid Bio Decontamination Service (RBDS) team, approximately 4,500m3 was bio-decontaminated using hydrogen peroxide vapour within two days.
When a multinational biopharmaceutical company in Asia, was looking to introduce a rigorous plan to ensure high-level bio decontamination of their manufacturing facility in the event of contamination, they called on Bioquell. This study overviews how Bioquell’s Rapid Bio Decontamination Service (RBDS) was able to produce a Priority Response Plan (PRP) that enabled swift mobilisation of RBDS personnel and equipment and reduced the risk of unforeseen challenges thus minimising downtime of the manufacturing facility.Download
When one major international provider of biologics CDMO had spore contamination post the COVID-19 lockdown, a solution was needed to regain Environmental Monitoring test standards. This study overviews how Bioquell’s Rapid Bio Decontamination Service was able to provide a solution and give the provider the ability to resume normal operations.Download
When hospital wards that were once converted to be used for solely COVID-19 purposes are ready to be reverted back to regular wards, a solution was needed to ensure the increased potential environmental contamination risk. This study overview how Bioquell RBDS was able to convert these wards.Download
