STERIS VaproQuip™: Decontamination Room

The STERIS VaproQuip™ Decontamination Room enables decontamination of high-touch, difficult-to-clean environmental surfaces on non-critical equipment and furniture, such as wheelchairs, IV poles and pumps. Its modular, panel-construction allows existing equipment storage rooms to be converted into functional, high-turn processing centers, minimizing the need for extensive construction. VaproQuip uses Vaprox® Hydrogen Peroxide Sterilant as a low-temperature dry vapor in a sealed room to neutralize a broad spectrum of biological organisms, including spores, bacteria, viruses and fungi. “Customers should continue to manually clean to remove visible soils, but no longer have to use bleach or disinfectants when used in conjunction with the VaproQuip Decontamination Room,” said Doug Goldman, Senior Product Manager at STERIS Corp. Its single, pre-programmed cycle makes it easy to use and helps eliminate human error. And its self-contained nature was engineered for safe operation away from patient care areas.
