West Park Hospital in Cody, Wyoming, has adopted the Bioquell robotic technology used to decontaminate rooms and ambulances that have had contact with Ebola patients.

bioquellFeatured by KULR News on Thursday 23d October, the hospital purchased the equipment long before the Ebola outbreak in Dallas. The system is used in hospitals around the world to kill more common pathogens such as CPE, C.difficile or norovirus

Gerri Ackley Infection Preventionist at Cody’s West Park Hospital, who’s concerned about multi-drug resistant bugs and other infectious agents, says, "We're going into flu season. And, frankly that's one of our biggest concerns."

She explains how they put the HPV robotic technology through their own test to make sure of its efficacy. "We put the bed in a room,” she says. “We put laptops, stethoscopes, cell phones, shoes, everything. Put it in the room, ran the machine. Swabbed the room. Took it to micro to see if anything grew. Nothing grew." 

Ryan Anderson, Bioquell Regional Sales Manager explains, "We use a 35% solution of hydrogen peroxide. We vaporize that. We send it through an enclosed space like a hospital room. It creates a micro-condensation on everything throughout the room. So, it gets underneath, behind, around, in nooks and crannies. Then we aerate it out with a second machine, which basically turns that hydrogen peroxide back into water and oxygen."

Hydrogen peroxide vapour is the gold standard for efficacy. It has the ability to eliminate 99.9999% of all pathogens, including spores, from all surfaces.
