About Ecolab’s Bioquell

In hospitals, pharmaceutical manufacturing plants, labs and cleanrooms, reducing the risk of microbial contamination is vital. You need a reliable way to bio-decontaminate your facilities and equipment. Bioquell solutions empower you to improve product and patient safety, meet regulatory and compliance requirements, and reach maximum operational efficiency.

  • Effective
    Bioquell equipment uses Bioquell Hydrogen Peroxide Sterilant* to produce hydrogen peroxide vapor, which achieves a 6-log sporicidal kill on exposed surfaces. This eliminates microbial life in the inanimate environment, including all forms of vegetative bacteria, bacterial spores, fungi, and viruses per the Title 40 of Code of Federal Regulations.

  • Trusted
    Bioquell is used in healthcare and life science facilities around the world to bio-decontaminate operating rooms, patient rooms, pharmaceutical manufacturing centers, and more.

  • Regulatory Compliance
    Ecolab supports Bioquell technology with professional validation, maintenance and customer service. Bio-decontamination with Bioquell hydrogen peroxide vapor meets regulatory standards around the world, including the European Biocidal Product Regulation (BPR). Bioquell Hydrogen Peroxide Sterilant is an EPA-registered sterilant*.

The Hydrogen Peroxide Vapor
Bio-decontamination Process

Bioquell uses hydrogen peroxide vapor to bio-decontaminate a space in a few simple steps.
Ecolab Bioquell Bio-decontamination Process: Preparation, Vaporization, Activation Period and Aeration
1: Preparation

Prep the room for bio-decontamination: seal vents, and open any cabinets and drawers that require treatment. Seal the door after you exit, then turn on the Bioquell equipment.

2: Vaporization

The system emits the vapor, filling the enclosed area. It deposits a micro-condensation on exposed surfaces, including complex shapes and crevices.

3: Activation Period

Once vaporization is complete, a waiting period allows the hydrogen peroxide time to kill microorganisms on surfaces.

4: Aeration

Lastly, your HVAC system and/or Bioquell aeration units convert the H2O2 into water vapor and oxygen. There are no additional steps to remove residue—the room is ready now ready for use.
