You can use DISINFECT plus in any room where you want to reduce germs, especially in: Laboratories, ambulances, containers, isolation rooms, normal sickrooms, intensive care rooms, operating rooms, storage rooms, food areas, and much more.
Depending on the reduction level, between 30 and 60 minutes – including preparation and post-processing approx. 2-3 hours
Questions about DISINFECT plus
If the device cannot be started, disconnect and reconnect it. The power connection used may be defective. It can be checked with a commercially available lamp or another electronic device. If in doubt, or if the device cannot be restarted, contact our service technicians.
After each shutdown, you have to wait for a minute before DISINFECT plus can be switched on again. The power supply of the computer does not switch off immediately and a restart is only possible when all systems are switched off. Switch it off again and wait a minute before starting again. If in doubt, or if the device cannot be restarted, contact our service technicians.
If the system detects tampering with the canister by increasing the weight, the canister used is blocked for safety reasons. In this case the canister must be replaced.
Smoke detectors, especially those with optical sensors, can trigger a fire alarm. The fire protection officer must clarify in advance what type of smoke detector is used and how it should be deactivated.
Ventilation can be deactivated by the building’s technical staff. Nevertheless, all air inlets and outlets must be sealed airtight before DISINFECT plus can be used.
Protective equipment must always be worn during operation before the room can be entered. On the device screen you can read the status message and the reason for the switch off. If you have attached the device to a network and started it from outside, you can also view the messages from another computer.
Check the status message. The start conditions must be within the tolerance range. Furthermore, the selected program must match the canister used. Is the liquid okay? If everything is OK, restart the device and try again.
Check the position of the RFID reader and the tag. If damage can be seen during the day, the canister can no longer be used. Exchange the canister. If you have no other canisters available and decontamination is necessary for whatever reason, there is the option of activating the system for decontamination. Contact our support.
If there is no damage and the reader is in the correct position, restart the device.
Restart the device.
The device can be damaged during operation. Enter the room with protective equipment and remove the covers. If the device has been used for a long time with the outlet openings covered, we recommend having a maintenance service carried out for your safety.
If in doubt, enter the room using your personal protective equipment and check the status reports.
Questions about microbiology
DISINFECT plus can be used against a wide variety of pathogens and unwanted germs, including bacteria, yeast, mold and viruses.
The validation is carried out using Geobacillus stearothermophilus spores, a non-pathogenic germ that is recommended by the RKI (Robert Koch-Institute, Berlin) as a bio-indicator.
Since DISINFECT plus produces aerosol particles that are smaller than 1 µm, these particles can attack the cell wall of microorganisms particularly effectively and destroy them by means of oxygen radicals.
By energy-saving ultrasound evaporation at room temperature and a subsequent filter process that separates large particles and only blows aerosol particles of less than 1 µm (thousandth of a millimeter) into the room.
The device blows out an aerosol mist that dissolves immediately.
The air humidity is influenced by the device. If necessary, a radiant heater or dehumidifier can be connected to regulate the temperature and humidity.
You do not need a high-voltage connection. Evaporation works via ultrasound at room temperature with a minimal energy consumption (approx. 300 watts and the fans have a peak load of up to 700 watts). Normal socket is sufficient without any problems.
DISINFECT plus has no built-in sensor for measuring the hydrogen peroxide concentration. Tests with an external sensor has shown that the H2O2 – concentration is approx. 100-120 ppm/m3.
Reagent / liquid
We measure the relative humidity and thereby regulate the hydrogen peroxide content in the air.
Yes, our DISINFECT plus reagent is both included in the expertise list of the ÖGHMP (Austrian Society for Hygiene, Microbiology and Preventive Medicine, Vienna) and also by the VAH (Association for applied hygiene, Bonn).
Yes, noroviruses (hNV) and felinem caliciviruses (FCV) have been successfully tested.
Clostridium Difficile have been tested both in its spore form and as a bacterium.
The microbiological check was carried out at the ofi – Austrian Research Institute using ÖNORM EN 13697 and the DGHM (German Society for Hygiene and Microbiology, Hanover) methods.
