Chlorine Dioxide meets all necessary requirements for a perfect decontamination
At today, there is no micro-organism known resistant to chlorine dioxide.
It has been demonstrated effective as a broad spectrum, sporicidal, bactericidal, fungicidal, and viricidal agent. .
Testing has been done using chlorine dioxide on a multitude of specific organism types, and that information can be found in the Biological Efficacy List
As a gas, chlorine dioxide will try to fill the space that it contains as homogeneous possible.
As can be seen in the chart above, the size of a chlorine dioxide gas molecule is 0.124 nm, much smaller than microorganisms and viruses, allowing the gas to easily penetrate into any areas where these microorganisms might be concealed.
The nature of chlorine dioxide gas allows to monitor its concentration by a photo spectrometer throughout the process very accurately.
We speak of a parametric release as the process proceeds to the next step only after achieving the pre-set conditions. Independently of volume and content the process guarantees the respect of the protocol.
Compared to other oxidising agents, chlorine dioxide has a relatively low oxidation potential. It allows to decontaminate sensitive materials ranging from laboratory scales, microscopes and computers, to complex machinery and entire assembly lines.
Shape or size of the volume has no impact on the effectiveness. The concentration of the gas is monitored and adjusted if necessary.
