BIOQUELL HIGHLIGHTS ADVANCED BIO-DECONTAMINATION SOLUTIONS FOR THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY
Bioquell (www.bioquell.com) is highlighting its wide range of advanced bio-decontamination solutions for the pharmaceutical industry. Bioquell’s Rapid Bio-decontamination Service (RBDS) is available on a 24/7 basis and reacts quickly to eliminate pathogens, stop escalated incidents and handle emergency response situations. The Bioquell Z-2 incorporates a Hydrogen Peroxide Vapour generator and catalytic aeration in a single, easy to manoeuvre system for clean rooms, laboratory spaces and anterooms, as well as upstream and downstream bioprocessing workflows. Bioquell’s L-4 unit eliminates microbial contamination from pharmaceutical processing and manufacturing equipment, small enclosure systems or open spaces and rooms.
Bioquell RBDS offers full bio-decontamination in a short timeframe with enhanced equipment capacity and skilled operators to ensure a facility is operational as soon as possible. Aimed at pharmaceutical manufacturing and processing plants that require bio-decontamination but do not have the resources, time or equipment, Bioquell RBDS can be customised to suit individual requirements and designed to blend into an existing bio-decontamination process and preventative maintenance or emergency response plans.
It is ideal for bio-safety labs (levels 2, 3 and 4), post construction new area commissioning, additional research environments, annual shut down for area maintenance and emergency containment control and elimination. Bioquell provides a final report confirming a 6-log kill (99.9999% elimination) of the spaces or surfaces treated.
From novel therapy and drug discovery efforts to bioprocessing and pharmaceutical production, Bioquell’s mobile, automated Z-2 system is ideal for advanced room and zone decontamination. It is designed for the protection of critical pharmaceutical research areas and manufacturing facilities from contaminants.
Using Bioquell’s patented Hydrogen Peroxide Vapour technology, the Z-2 adheres to regulatory compliance standards. It provides a proven 6-log kill of bioburden from every exposed surface in the selected zone. The system’s built in aeration ensures rapid cycle times and the capacity to decontaminate larger areas with multiple systems.
Bioquell’s Z-2 can remove contaminants in areas up to 250m³. For applications requiring decontamination exceeding the scope of a single Z-2, multiple systems can be operated at once to provide complete coverage.
As with every Bioquell solution, the decontamination process can begin without waiting for a limited temperature or humidity range to be reached.. The Bioquell Z-2 is fast and easy to use with up to 300 pre-programmed gassing cycles, an intuitive, detachable touchscreen and printed reports for simple set up with swift cycles and detailed reporting.
The Bioquell Z-2 offers full GMP compliance and can operate in regulated areas if used with timed hydrogen peroxide vapour cycles. It has a built-in thermal printer for tracking cycle conditions, can connect to building management systems and be easily assimilated into existing processes and protocols.
Bioquell’s multipurpose L-4 eliminates microbial contamination from equipment such as incubators, freeze dryers, pass-throughs, rack washers, isolators and open spaces or rooms up to 250m³. Validated cycles can be achieved through quick and direct connections, simple room setup or custom engineering solutions. The Bioquell L-4 can be used inside a room by attaching a distribution head or outside of a zone with connection solutions to meet individual application requirements.
Bioquell’s L-4 also offers 6-log kill and its dual loop technology takes effect by rapidly turning hydrogen peroxide vapour into water vapour and oxygen. The details of each cycle are printed and real time cycle data is available over Ethernet for recording on LIMS, BMS, SCADA or other data acquisition systems.
Bioquell is a well-established global leader in the design and manufacture of bio-decontamination solutions for risk reduction within the healthcare, life science and pharmaceutical industries. The UK-based company operates worldwide through its own sales offices and international distributor network.
Bioquell’s industry-leading Hydrogen Peroxide Vapour technology is used across the world to eradicate biological contaminants including problematic bacteria, viruses and fungi on every exposed surface in any suitable enclosure to ensure maximum uptime. Deployment of Bioquell’s Hydrogen Peroxide Vapour process provides residue-free, safe and repeatable disinfection of rooms, buildings, equipment and sensitive electronics. It is a clear alternative when replacing traditional methods such as formaldehyde or chlorine-based products.
