Broad-spectrum surface disinfection that’s economical, non-corrosive, and easy to apply is essential to keeping laboratories productive and safe. The sciences community understands that surface contamination and sub-optimal general room hygiene adds to poor outcomes and potential danger to staff. The demands of today’s manual cleaning protocol in relation to time and thoroughness has demonstrated ineffective for complete room cleaning. SteraMist powered by Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT™) is the solution for quick disinfection/decontamination of equipment such as biosafety cabinets and laboratory hoods, and for disinfection after spills.   Learn more about how SteraMist™ BIT™ can reduce labor, save on material degradation, and increase efficiencies in multiple lab spaces.


In addition, TOMI can provide iHP® disinfection/decontamination services at laboratories.

Bio-safety (BSL 1- BSL 4) & Bio-medical

Scientists working in bio-safety laboratories routinely handle the most lethal microorganisms known to science. This work involves risk and human error can never be completely eliminated. Developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in response to weaponized anthrax, SteraMist™ powered by Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT™) is a powerful technology in fighting the spread of bacteria*. Download a case study about the implementation of SteraMist™ BIT™ at the Galveston National Laboratory at the University of Texas Medical Branch.

Tissue & Blood Banks

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Current Good Tissue Practices (CGTP) states that maintaining a clean facility is fundamental to an establishment’s ability to prevent the contamination of human cells, tissues, and cellular and tissue-based products (HCT/Ps). Without procedures in place, this important responsibility may be left to chance. SteraMist™ powered by Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT™) kills pathogenic bacteria* maintaining a clean facility and reducing the risk of cross-contamination of HCT/Ps.

Animal Laboratory

Maintaining an environment that is comfortable and free of contagions is essential for the well-being of research animals, and to produce the most accurate research findings. Visible soils such as feces and urine are routinely cleaned but microbial pathogens are equally as important to eliminate for a controlled and reproducible environment. SteraMist™ powered by Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT™) kills pathogenic bacteria* and eliminates odor causing bacteria that could terminate costly research projects.

Laboratory Equipment & Instrumentation

Biological safety depends on proper cleanup and removal of potentially harmful agents. Utilizing a disinfectant that is effective against pathogens and won’t harm sensitive laboratory equipment is essential to maintaining a productive work environment. SteraMist™ BIT™ kills pathogens on contact, reducing the risk of cross contamination associated with contaminated surfaces, including high touch equipment.
