Applicable Solutions

Cell and Gene Therapy

The risk and financial impact of microbial contamination is exceptionally high during the cell-production procedure, making aseptic conditions essential to the handling of cell samples. Performing as many steps as possible under isolation and following effective disinfection is the safest method. Our flexible bio-decontamination solutions help you to maintain a secure environment free of microbiological contaminants so you can develop and advance leading therapies and treatments.

Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Compounding

Stringent manufacturing and compounding conditions call for leading bio-decontamination solutions. Whether operated by your staff members or one of our expert onsite technicians, our fixed and portable hydrogen peroxide vapor bio-decontamination systems eliminate your surface contaminants in pass-throughs, airlocks and other areas for total working efficacy.

Research and Laboratory

We understand biological safety is key to your research processes. That’s why Bioquell from Ecolab offers flexible bio-decontamination solutions for research facilities both large and small, allowing you to lead the way without a contaminant slowing you down. From your benchtop to your entire workspace, our mobile and built-in systems reduce your bioburden at every step of your workflow.

Biotechnology and Drug Development

The strict and continual application of aseptic processing, environmental controls and monitoring are key to the approval and success of your final drug or product as a leading solution. With Bioquell’s automated, validated bio-decontamination, you have confidence in your bioburden reduction of your workspace and enhancements for sterility testing.


Bioquell Technology
Bioquell ProteQ Components

1. The main structure of the system contains:

  • Hydrogen peroxide dispersion and distribution system for rooms up to 400 m³ (depending on configuration, load and environmental conditions).
  • Dual bottle module with RFID reading for safe loading, large-volume vhp decontamination and key data collection.
  • Built-in aeration capability as a standard feature.

2. The wireless control module combines a thermal printer and a color touchscreen with graphical interface.

3. The additional aeration units are stored in the main structure of the system.

Multiple System Setup

Up to three Bioquell ProteQ systems can be run simultaneously from a single master controller, making larger spaces simple to decontaminate. For zones requiring more than three systems, multiple master controllers can be used. Ask a representative for more details. 


Additional Aeration Units
Additional Aeration Units

Additional aeration units can be added to the Bioquell ProteQ and Bioquell BQ-50 to disperse vapor, as well as provide further aeration, resulting in faster cycles. These units connect wirelessly with the system. Up to two aeration units can be stored within the frame of the Bioquell ProteQ for ease of transport.

Bioquell Indicators
Bioquell Biological Indicators

Our high-quality biological indicators made from Geobacillus stearothermophilus endospores ensure reliable results in validating a 6-log reduction of bioburden from the decontamination process.

Low Level Peroxide Sensor XAM-5100
Low Level Peroxide Sensor XAM-5100

This peroxide sensor is a safety tool used to evaluate the levels of hydrogen peroxide remaining upon the completion of a cycle to ensure the area is safe to enter. It provides an added level of reassurance beyond the readings provided by the Bioquell system.

Bioquell Room CI
Bioquell Room CI 

The Bioquell Room CI is our chemical indicator developed for rooms 25m3 and larger. Place one or multiple indicators in the room you are performing Bioquell bio-decontamination to see your expected results in real-time. The color changing strip printed on the CI has a reactive dye specifically tailored for monitoring Bioquell’s bio-decontamination process, allowing you to see the results as they occur.

Bioquell ProteQ

Our specialist team of validation engineers execute the IQ (Installation Qualification), OQ (Operational Qualification) and PQ (Performance Qualification) protocols of each new Bioquell ProteQ.

With the Bioquell ProteQ’s ease of use and capacity to decontaminate nearly any area in your facility, validation can be as simple or complex as you require. Bioquell will support you in the development and proof of optimized cycle parameters to achieve repeatable kill results in each specific room and load configurations. Bioquell can perform the work for you or train your team in how to create, monitor and adjust programs.

Bioquell ProteQ FAQs

Are aeration units within the system included?
Each Bioquell ProteQ unit features an integrated aeration unit for the removal of hydrogen peroxide vapor. Additional mobile aeration units may be purchased to meet your individual needs, allowing you to optimize the system to your individual requirements as extra aeration capabilities may not be needed. 

How large a room can the Bioquell ProteQ decontaminate?
The Bioquell ProteQ can support a room up to 400m3. This is subject to configuration, loading and environmental conditions. If needed, larger spaces can be decontaminated with additional Bioquell ProteQ systems.

Can the Bioquell ProteQ control my HVAC?
The system can communicate with your BMS via volt-free contacts to indicate cycle progress. The BMS can then control your HVAC accordingly.

What if the wireless connectivity does not work in my building?
While extremely rare, if this situation occurs, we can supply a wireless range extender to allow for a wired connection when needed.
