VHP is a winning choice over other technologies as vaporised hydrogen peroxide is able to bio-decontaminate even HEPA filters, the main location of microbiological contamination.

To prevent spillage into the environment where the BSC is located and used, it is equipped with HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters. These filters, designed to retain solid particles and aerosols as small as 0.3 microns with a filtration efficiency of over 99.97%, do not retain gases or vapours.

VHP has all the characteristics – gaseous form and molecule size of 0.0003 µm – to penetrate the HEPA filter and thus ensure complete cabinet bio-decontamination.

Are you responsible for a microbiological laboratory, biosafety or maintenance of biohazard cabinet? Do you have to ensure the safety of the users and all persons in the laboratory, as well as maximise the efficiency of cabinet operation by operating in maximum safety?
