STERIS Life Sciences Group introduces the NEW VHP® AR1200™ Room Biodecontamination Aeration Unit

MENTOR, OH, April 17, 2012: STERIS Life Sciences Group introduces the new VHP AR1200 Room Biodecontamination Aeration Unit, the latest addition to its product portfolio of vaporized hydrogen peroxide (VHP) biodecontamination solutions.

“The AR1200 establishes a new standard in room biodecontamination,” comments Art Papineau, VHP product manager, STERIS Life Sciences Group. “We believe this unit is the highest capacity portable VHP aeration unit ever produced. When linked with the VHP Victory unit with our Smart Phase™ Technology, it creates a fast, easy-to-use decontamination system from start to finish.”

One AR1200 unit delivers more than 2000 Cubic Meters per Hour and can be used as a stand-alone device with other VHP biodecontamination units or linked with a VHP Victory unit for expanded SmartPhase operation and faster cycle time.

STERIS VHP technology was introduced more than 20 years ago. STERIS continues to be a global leader in dry vaporized hydrogen peroxide, with hundreds of units in use in biopharmaceutical, research and laboratory environments, and in the food and beverage markets.
