Unlock a New Standard

In the Life Sciences industry, safety and cleanliness are paramount. At Quantus, we excel in this commitment with our advanced Chlorine Dioxide Decontamination services for Biological Safety Cabinets and other essential lab equipment.

Why Choose Chlorine Dioxide Decontamination?

Chlorine Dioxide (CD) gas is a superior decontaminant, effectively eliminating a wide range of biological hazards. Its unique properties ensure thorough penetration and decontamination, creating a safe, contaminant-free environment for your research and production activities.


Quantus goes beyond standard protocols by using secondary containment methods, adding an extra layer of protection. This ensures that any potential leaks during decontamination are safely contained, allowing your personnel to work safely nearby. Our systems safeguard your team and protect sensitive operations from contamination, underscoring our commitment to excellence and safety.

Frequestly Asked Questions

What is Chlorine Dioxide (CD) Decontamination and how does it work?

Chlorine Dioxide (CD) Decontamination is a process used to sterilize biological safety cabinets and other laboratory equipment. It involves the use of CD gas, which is a powerful decontaminant effective against a wide range of biological hazards, including bacteria, viruses, and fungi.

The process includes preparing the equipment, performing a test run, loading the chemicals, running the decontamination cycle, and ensuring thorough scrubbing and completion. This method ensures that all surfaces within the equipment are exposed to the decontaminant, ensuring a safe and sterile environment for critical research and production activities.

What are the safety measures associated with CD Decontamination?

Safety is paramount during CD Decontamination. Key safety measures include:

Adhering to customer-specific safety procedures and wearing proper safety attire.

Performing a risk assessment before beginning any work to identify and mitigate hazards.

Using appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), such as full-face respirators, especially within the decontamination zone.

Setting up a negative pressure secondary containment system to prevent gas leakage and protect personnel.

Posting appropriate warning signs and maintaining a restricted area around the decontamination site until it is deemed safe


What equipment can be decontaminated using the CD Decontamination process?

The CD Decontamination process is suitable for a variety of laboratory equipment, including Class I and Class II biological safety cabinets (types A1, A2, B1, and B2), negative/positive pressure isolators, animal devices, incubators, refrigerators, freezers, and exhaust HEPA filter banks. The system can handle typical volumes up to 90 cubic feet, ensuring comprehensive decontamination for various devices used in laboratory settings. Although Class III biological safety cabinets are not specifically addressed, they can also be decontaminated using the Mini-CD System (MCS).

How long does the CD Decontamination process take?

The duration of the CD Decontamination process can vary depending on the size and type of equipment being decontaminated, as well as the specific conditions of the decontamination site. Typically, the process includes preparation, chemical loading, decontamination, scrubbing cycles, and final verification to ensure all gases have dissipated. On average, the entire procedure can take several hours to complete, but precise timing will be determined by the specific requirements of each project.

What should clients do to prepare their equipment for CD Decontamination?

Clients need to ensure that their equipment is adequately prepared for the CD Decontamination process. Key preparation steps include:

Removing all items from the biological safety cabinet (BSC) that are not part of the decontamination process.

Ensuring the BSC is generally clean, as dirt and debris can inhibit chlorine dioxide penetration.

Stacking or positioning remaining items to allow proper circulation of humidity levels and decontamination gases.

Identifying any equipment or items inside the BSC that need to be included in the decontamination.

Assisting with the shutdown and startup of the BSC’s exhaust system if required.
