Decontamination Services

Reduce the risk of contamination after routine shutdowns, repairs, or emergency responses of your cleanrooms, controlled environments, equipment, and spaces.

Contamination in hard-to-reach areas puts your critical environment at risk. Additionally, many traditional manual cleaning processes often fail to reach all contact surfaces. From routine bioburden reduction to rapid response for an unplanned event, STERIS can help you resume operation faster to protect your people, products, and research.

Our Biodecontamination Services have been proven successful in a wide range of industries around the world for more than 20 years.

Our Process and Products

STERIS Biodecontamination Services leverage our patented Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide, or VHP®, process technology. This dry sterilization process utilizes low temperature hydrogen peroxide vapor as a broad-spectrum antimicrobial sporicide. With validated, repeatable services, our team can help prevent costly contamination for applications worldwide.


Safety
  • Our environmentally safe process produces only residue-free byproducts, water and oxygen, which leave no harmful chemicals behind.
  • VHP decontamination technology reduces the risk of condensation, resulting in increased material compatibility with a wide variety of sensitive materials, including painted surfaces, electronic equipment, and HEPA filters.
Efficacy
  • The VHP decontamination process is proven to destroy a wide range of microorganisms, including bacterial spores, viruses, and fungi.
  • Achieve six-log reduction using an EPA-registered hydrogen peroxide sterilant.
Convenience
  • Our highly trained decontamination experts can respond quickly and manage your project from start to finish.
  • VHP cycle times minimize downtime and lost productivity.

Other biodecontamination methods can be utilized based on your applications.
