The cost to get a new drug to market can be well over one billion dollars. As a result, a contamination issue is devastating and expensive to the entire process. Sources for pollution are abundant in drug manufacturing and include human error, air contaminates, equipment, and raw materials. Due to moisture from water intrusion and or cleaning processes molds spores can become common in certain of these processes.

Ensuring all surfaces remain fully disinfected and decontaminated is fundamental for the highest level of quality control. Whether utilized for ante-areas, clean rooms, or for materials transfer, SteraMist™ powered by Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT™) meets the disinfection/decontamination requirements for all pharmaceutical manufacturing areas; from communal rooms to the most stringently guarded areas. It’s the unique science behind the technology that makes this system so versatile and effective.

SteraMist™ powered by Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT™) is an EPA Registered Solution and Equipment Combination that Provides the Unique Technology of Hydrogen Peroxide Ionization.

SteraMist’s patented Activated Ionized Hydrogen Peroxide (AIHP) technology disinfects high touch, hard to reach non-porous surfaces without contaminating the environment with any toxic by-products or, corroding or oxidizing materials/equipment. After disinfection/decontamination, it leaves the environment with only oxygen & water (humidity). This makes it an ideal solution for reducing cross contamination between treated surfaces during the production, purification and packaging of pharmaceuticals.

An effective broad-spectrum surface disinfectant, SteraMist™ BIT™ is:

  • Easily incorporated into current cleaning procedures
  • Easy to transport and can be configured to treat multiple spaces simultaneously
  • Economical, and easy to apply
  • Bleach and Chlorine free
  • Formaldehyde, Glutaraldehyde, Titanium dioxide, Peracetic acid, free disinfecting formula
  • Silver ion free, leaves no residues
  • Great for frequent, daily use
  • A multi-purpose, multi-room, multi-surface daily disinfectant
