Mobile decontamination system’s wireless connectivity

Bioquell says its new Bioquell ProteQ mobile room bio-decontamination system offers ‘a cost-effective and high performance’ means of automatically decontaminating critical areas, including biopharmaceutical manufacturing facilities, GMP/GLP and bio-safety laboratories, animal facilities, and cleanrooms. The compact machine utilises the company’s 35% hydrogen peroxide vapour, with ‘a modular, upgradeable design for a more configurable pricing structure’. Developed as ‘the next generation’ of the company’s previous mobile room decontamination offering, the Bioquell Z-2, the Bioquell ProteQ incorporates powerful distribution technology for reduced cycle times, with more efficient use of Bioquell’s approved 35% hydrogen peroxide vapour, and less need for additional standalone distribution fans. It offers new wireless functionality which can network multiple units, improving set-up times, and ‘making it ideal for areas of any size’. For GMP applications or frequently decontaminated areas, the Bioquell ProteQ carries out an automated decontamination cycle to parameters defined during a documented gas cycle development. For non-GMP areas and emergency deployment, an updated algorithm delivers an automated 6-log decontamination cycle based on inputted room volume and monitored environmental conditions.

The system offers built-in aeration, but cycle times can be optimised further with optional wirelessly controlled aeration units stored directly in the frame. Bioquell said; “It easily delivers decontamination of every exposed surface in a single cycle for a validated 6-log sporicidial bioburden reduction.”

The Bioquell ProteQ offers HPV dispersal and distribution for rooms up to 250 m³ per unit, but capacity can be easily expanded to up to 400 m³ or more for a single system with Bioquell validation. 

The dual bottle module with RFID reading facilitates safe loading, large volume decontamination, key data collection, and traceability. It is operated via a wireless lectern with thermal printer, and a colour touchscreen with pictorial interfacing. The lectern communicates wirelessly with the generator and any aeration units in the room. An easy-to- interpret LED light strip gives an indication of cycle progress.
