SteraMist™ powered by Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT™) has proven efficacy against bacteria, spores, viruses and mold. Used internationally as a highly effective sporicide/sterilant, SteraMist™ BIT™ is applied across a broad array of use sites. Partners across the globe have integrated SteraMist™ BIT™ decontamination protocols for: food processing & packaging, clean rooms & materials transfer, donning & doffing of personal protective equipment, pandemic/epidemic response & preparedness, hospital terminal cleaning and for daily use.  SteraMist™ BIT’s unparalleled biocidal efficacy is achieved without leaving behind toxic byproducts; making it an ideal decontaminant for multiple purposes and for broad material compatibility.

SteraMist Complete: Clean Rooms, Transfer Chambers &  Pass Boxes

This unique system provides rapid and effective sterilization of aseptic enclosures, destroying proteins, carbohydrates and lipids on contact and kills biological agents including; viruses, bacteria and microbial spores.

SteraMist™ powered by Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT™) is an ideal bio-decontamination system for sanitization of aseptic enclosures. The system utilizes a 7.8% hydrogen peroxide solution that is converted into Activated Ionized Hydrogen Peroxide (AIHP)after passing through a cold plasma arc. Once ionized the mist acts like a gas with excellent distribution properties due to naturally repelling positively charged ions. As a result, SteraMist™ BIT™ boasts consistently faster cycle times over other conventional systems and the process has proven to have superior efficacy and materials compatibility. Additionally, downtime is minimized, increasing throughput and payback on your investment.

Hospital Terminal Clean Protocols

Replace ineffective spray and wipe cleaning methods with SteraMist™ BIT™ and significantly reduce healthcare associated infections (HAI).

SteraMist™ BIT™ kills bacteria and spores on contact with a 99.9999 percent reduction or greater. Today’s emerging world of deadly pathogens has created the need for a product that is equally as lethal as the “Superbugs” that are responsible for killing thousands of people each year. Developed by the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to combat weaponized anthrax, SteraMist™ BIT™ is now available for your healthcare facility to protect your patients and staff against infectious bacteria.

A Proposed Protocol for Verifying Environmental Decontamination of Spore-forming Bacteria from Surfaces


Global Outbreaks & Epidemics

SteraMist™ Mobile Decontamination Chambers overwhelmingly preferred over protocols using chlorine bleach.

SteraMist™DC_Rigid.rg Mobile Decontamination Chambers were one of 15 proposals selected by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), in the global fight to eradicate Ebola and strengthen local healthcare systems. TOMI Environmental Solutions staff spent 35 days in Liberia testing the chambers in two Ebola Treatments Units (ETUs). Tests were conducted at the Nimba County, Ganta ETU and the ELWA-3 ETU outside Monrovia for: ease of integration into current protocols, acceptance of technology, efficacy, and durability in field conditions. Staff overwhelmingly preferred SteraMist™ BIT™ over chlorine bleach only protocols because it’s faster, doesn’t require mixing, doesn’t stain, can decontaminate sensitive equipment, and AIHP mist quickly breaks down into oxygen and humidity.

A new system from TOMI™ Environmental Solutions, Inc. may change the way people disinfect both air and surfaces of all varieties.

Global Testing on Pathogens

TOMI™ Environmental Solutions remains at the forefront of infectious disease control and prevention.

Aggressively conducting tests to prove efficacy against emerging and existing pathogens, TOMI™ is positioning SteraMist™ BIT™ as an essential resource for emergency preparedness and infectious disease control. A powerful bio-decontaminate,SteraMist™ is highly effective against many of the most lethal microbial pathogens and biological agents known to man, including Geobacillus stearothermophilus, Clostridium difficile spores, Staphylococcus, Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus, bacillus anthracis, VX gas, and Sulfur Mustard. Studies are currently in development to validate SteraMist’s efficacy against Penicillin Resistant Tuberculosis, Ebola, and the Aegypti mosquito and its larvae which are linked to the spread of ZIKA virus, early results are extremely promising.
