Decontamination for Laboratory Biosafety

decontamination laboratory servicesWhen a company has te right decontamination process in place, it is crucial for a pharmaceutical or biotech company doing drug and medical research and testing procedures to have the right systems in place.  When there is an accumulation of microbial contamination in the lab, it can lead to the transmission of disease.  This classification is referred to as sterilization or disinfection.  

The primary goal of any disinfection process or techniques is to eliminate pathoens and micro-organisms apart from bacterial spores on a laboratory surface.  But the goal should be the sterilization to eliminate all microbial life.  Some companies use heat chemicals or radiation as a sterilization technique.  Each sterilization method has its advantages and cautionary measures that need to be put in place to prevent hazardous accidents.  

Our team will evaluate any potential contamination issues and propose optimal solutions that will work best for your organization.  Whether those be surface decontamination, fog decontamination, gas decontamination or any other method you have chosen to implement.  Our team will also provide recommendations for potential future occurrences.

Complete, and

Decontaminated instruments and equipment may be removed for disposal and or future reuse due to space or laboratory demolition.  Fogging is typically performed using solutions that contain active ingredients.  Either a peracetic acid/hydrogen peroxide mixture, or chlorine dioxide.  

The fogging process will be performed with a B&G ULV fogging equipment which will quickly disperse chemicals at varying aerosol droplet sizes.  It will ive a high standard of coverage.  The chemical will be delivered by hand-held foggers or a pneumatic pump sprayer.
