New Esco White Papers Document Hydrogen Peroxide Decontamination of Biological Safety Cabinets
Date:3/5/2009

Esco Technologies, Inc. announces the publication of white papers documenting hydrogen peroxide vapor decontamination of the company's biological safety cabinets. Hydrogen peroxide vapor is a safer alternative to formaldehyde, which has been banned in several European countries due to adverse health effects.

Hatboro, Penn. (PRWEB) March 5, 2009 -- Esco Technologies, Inc. announces the publication of white papers documenting hydrogen peroxide vapor decontamination of the company's biological safety cabinets. Hydrogen peroxide vapor is a safer alternative to formaldehyde, which has been banned in several European countries due to adverse health effects.

The cabinets are routinely decontaminated in advance of service procedures; before relocation; when the type of micro-organism handled is changed; after serious spills; and finally when product contamination is suspected.

According to Esco's findings, hydrogen peroxide vapor works faster and leaves the cabinet residue-free at the end of the decontamination cycle -- in addition to a variety of safety benefits.

STERIS Corporation (Ohio, USA) and BIOQUELL (UK) are the world's two major vendors of hydrogen peroxide vapor generators. These papers explore the process using both STERIS and BIOQUELL equipment to decontaminate Esco biological safety cabinets, documenting:

  • Procedures for hydrogen peroxide vapor decontamination
  • Cycle parameters
  • Microbiological efficacy
  • Material compatibility

"These papers demonstrate that hydrogen peroxide vapor decontamination can be accomplished successfully without any adaptations to current models of Esco biological safety cabinets," said XQ Lin, Esco president. "These studies position Esco cabinets as the industry's technology leader, and guarantee customers a 'future-proof' choice with Esco. No other biological safety cabinet vendor has documented successful decontamination efficacy of their cabinets with both STERIS and BIOQUELL equipment."
