Did you know that room disinfection with hydrogen peroxide is one of the most used techniques to reduce the environmental contamination of multidrug-resistant organisms today?

In recent years, non-manual disinfection technique (sometimes called ‘Non-touch disinfection’) with hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) vapor or aerosol has gained interest. This method replaces the conventional ‘hands-on’ disinfection, a highly user-dependent and complicated to standardize technique. ‘No-touch’ methods of room decontamination have been demonstrated to reduce key multidrug-resistant organisms on surfaces and environments in healthcare rooms.

For monitoring the efficacy of this technology, Terragene has developed two innovatives indicators, the only ones in the market:

– A rapid biological indicator with readout in only one hour

– A 3D chemical indicator for evaluating the H2O2 diffusion inside the room
