Dry Fog Sterilization Service

The Sterile Science Dry Fog system provides a high technology solution to disinfect pharmaceutical suites, cleanrooms, healthcare facilities, critical production and laboratory areas.

Facility, safety and infection control managers trust Sterile Science to rapidly and effectively provide a six log kill (99.9999%) of microbial, bacterial and fungal contamination.

The Dry Fog application excels at sterilizing large complex areas in a fraction of the time it would take to manually clean. It only takes 1-2 highly trained operators to fog, whereas a large manual cleaning crew increases contamination risk.

Superior Performance

The Dry Fog system uses a combination of industry leading cold sterilant and our state of the art Dry Fog delivery system to rapidly and safely deliver vapor to even the most complex areas. The multi-port dry fogging head allows for rapid vapor dispersion that ensures that the most distant areas are reached effectively

  • Controlled and consistently accurate droplet size (Sauter Mean Droplet diameter of 5.9 microns)
    • Minimizes risk of condensation
    • Does not wet surfaces
    • Ensures penetration into inaccessible areas
  • Dry Fog system can decontaminate multiple linked rooms simultaneously

Short Process Time

Typically, the entire sterilization process can be completed in less than 3 hours, depending upon room size and ventilation system efficiency, compared to up to 3-5 days with some conventional systems

  • No pre-conditioning of the room is required
  • No need for additional fans for coverage
  • No long aeration process

The Sterile Science Dry Fog system results in substantially lower clean room downtime.

Environment Friendly, EPA Registered Chemistry

The Dry Fog System utilizes Minncare® a peracetic acid and hydrogen peroxide based proprietary chemistry developed by Mar Cor for optimized biocidal efficacy. It is a fully biodegradable sporicide that will leave no measurable air residuals. Minncare is registered by the EPA for use as a fog to enhance existing cleaning and disinfection process.

  • Contains only pharmaceutical quality raw materials
  • No toxic aldehyde vapors
  • Fully biodegradable
  • EPA Registration Number 52252-4

Emergency Service

In the event of a contamination, Sterile Science can be onsite within 48 hours in most cases. This minimizes the downtown of operations to less than a day so that you are able to get back on track.

Fully Validated and Widely Used

Each dry fog application is validated using biological indicators containing geobacillus stearothermophilus spores. These indicators are placed in the most challenging locations, inside equipment, confined areas, and throughout the cleanroom. This assures that each area achieves a 6-log reduction in microbial, bacterial and fungal contamination.

  • The Dry Fog System has been validated by hundreds of FDA audited pharmaceutical production facilities worldwide
  • A valid and reproducible procedure according to international Pharma Standards
  • Efficacy results can be verified using biological and chemical indicators
  • Chemistry has passed AFNOR Norm NF T 72-281, showing a 6.9 log reduction of bacteria spores
