MAT FM is now able to offer touchless hydrogen peroxide (H202) decontamination of operating theatres, recovery areas, critical care, sterile services, aseptic suites, cleanrooms, containment laboratories and all critically ventilated departments.
The system kills at least 99.99% of harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi and mould, and offers outstanding support to any infection prevention and hygiene regime. It can be carried out prior to handover of a completed new build or refurbishment project, or as part of a regular periodic maintenance proposition, or as an emergency call-out.
Flexible, Effective Decontamination
It can be very difficult to decontaminate the specialist equipment and various surfaces in hospital and life science areas. However, the spray delivery system for the hydrogen peroxide vapour used in the process MAT FM offers reaches areas where traditional cleaning methods cannot, providing thorough and effective disinfection.
Suitable for Positive Pressure Environments
The system is also suitable for a positive pressure environment. These attributes make it ideal for the sensitive areas served by MAT FM, which often include equipment such as ultraclean ventilation (UCV) canopies, operating lights, delicate endoscopic or monitoring equipment, safety cabinets and high powered microscopes.
It is non-corrosive so safe for use on electronic devices and equipment as well as on all material types. This means that no special preparation is required before an area is vacated for decontamination.
A key element of the system’s success is that it is touchless – while wiping spreads contamination from surface to surface, this innovative technology works on a ‘spray and walk away’ basis.
A Non-Toxic Solution
The environmentally friendly decontamination method uses stabilised hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and silver (Ag), which breaks down into simple, 100% biodegradable, non-toxic water and oxygen.
The hydrogen peroxide vapour is delivered via fogging for total area disinfection, or as a spray for surface disinfection. An oxidising agent, it destroys bacterial cell walls by stealing their electrons then leaves a safe and undetectable layer of silver ions on surfaces to prevent future contamination.
