Maintaining an environment that is comfortable and free of contagions is essential to produce the most accurate research findings for our world in the Life Science realm, especially for those scientists working in bio-safety laboratories who routinely handle the most lethal microorganisms known to science. Utilizing a decontaminant that is effective against pathogens and won’t harm sensitive laboratory equipment is essential to maintaining a productive work environment for these environments. SteraMist powered by Binary Ionization Technology (BIT) offers greater material compatibility and boasts significant efficacy compared to other, older decontamination options.
Sustaining environmental control and reducing microbiological contamination in a pharmaceutical manufacturing facility requires following a strict standard operating procedure (SOP) and numerous Certificates of Analysis (CoA) for quality assurance. Specifically, the decontamination SOP must meet a facility’s need and adhere to both internal, industry and federal guidelines. TOMI partners with every life science client to provide guidance in developing highly effective decontamination protocols, as well as direction throughout the entire equipment qualification & validation process, if necessary.
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. Moisture from water intrusion and/or decontaminating processes can commonly lead to mold issues. The well-being of laboratory animals is central to medical discoveries and to the integrity of animal science. The ability to create and maintain an environment that is habitable and free of bacterial, fungal and viral contagions is essential for both Specific Pathogen Free (SPF) and non-SPF animal colonies. Further, various microbial outbreaks can be subclinical in some research animals.
This makes it imperative that such drug manufacturing and animal laboratories have a state-of-the-art decontamination system and protocol to prevent such mishaps and diseases from spreading.
Ensuring all areas of space and all surfaces remain in the life sciences industry fully 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 decontamination requirements for all manufacturing production and research 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.
