The hydrogen peroxide vapour (HPV) decontamination process, used in MCO-230AIC IncuSafe CO2 Incubator and 170 range of CO2 and Multigas Incubators, permits quick turn around of the cell culture incubator between processes, even when a complete, validated decontamination is required. Low temperature hydrogen peroxide in biological safety cabinets is a widely used alternative to other decontamination procedures, especially in the pharmaceutical industry.
PHCbi’s H2O2 system limits incubator downtime to less than three hours for each total chamber decontamination. Despite this increased speed, the high levels of safety needed to meet regulatory requirements are reliably retained. The quick turnaround of this process means that the equipment is out of action for substantially less time than similar direct heat decontamination systems.
