Aerosolized Hydrogen Peroxide Decontamination of N95 Respirators for Re-Use During the COVID-19 Pandemic

In response to the great demand for PPE during the COVID-19 pandemic, Penn State University sought ways to safely decontaminate N95 respirators for reuse. They thoroughly tested CURIS System's ability to decontaminate N95 respirators, including fit testing and validation of CURIS' ability to kill germs in and on the N95 masks. Without fail, CURIS' easy-to-use system and protocols successfully disinfected all N95s in the study, leaving no harmful residues and providing for the safe re-use of N95 respirators for healthcare workers. This study is published on MedRxiv.org.

Simultaneous Decontamination of a Laboratory and a Biological Safety Cabinet

Log Reduction = Risk Reduction

Decontamination of a room AND its contents is essential. Until now, this has required at least two separate processes enlisting multiple technologies at high costs for equipment and personnel, not to mention treatment time. This study with The Baker Company proves CURIS has the ability to effectively decontaminate a laboratory and a biological safety cabinet using just one device and one treatment.

Effective Reduction of Biofilm with Pulse Hydrogen Peroxide

Biofilm is a hot topic in the decontamination world for good reason. Even chemicals that can kill germs often have a hard time penetrating through contaminants to get to the target pathogens. Skin oils, chemical residues, detritus, grime, and other bodily fluids layer onto surfaces, making a protective cover and/or reservoir for dangerous germs. In this study done with the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), CURIS proves its ability to substantially reduce active cultures even in the presence of biofilm.

Effective in wet and dry biofilm.

Alleviating Bio-Burden in a Wound Care Center

Real-world disinfection often brings greater challenges than faced in standard testing. That is why CURIS System encourages everyone to validate the efficacy of their treatments. In this study, CURIS measures pre- and post- treatment levels of bio-burden to prove its ability to protect against dangerous pathogens. By combining our superior devices with custom treatment plans, CURIS successfully enabled wound care facility managers to significantly reduce the risks of HAI in their facility.

Effectiveness of Pulse Technology and a Hybrid Hydrogen Peroxide Decontamination System for EMS

Since emergency response personnel never know the full extent of potential pathogens they may encounter, creating an environment free of biological contaminates is crucial as a staging point and finish to patient care in order to help protect them and their next patient. The Children’s Hospital of Atlanta and Dougherty County EMS in Georgia partnered with Pathogend of Georgia, a bio-decontamination services company, to perform treatments using CURIS System and collect data in an effort to ensure maximum disinfection possible. The results of this study clearly show a significant and measurable improvement in the ambulance environment following treatment with the CURIS® 7% Hybrid Hydrogen Peroxide™ system.

Evidence of the Feasibility and Efficacy of Daily Disinfection Practices in Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic

Communities depend on public transportation for access to jobs, schools, healthcare, and basic necessities. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, transportation providers needed to improve disinfection efforts in order to protect the health of staff and riders alike. This study looks at the feasibility of implementing large-scale, daily disinfection of each bus in a fleet, the impact on the fleet, effectiveness, sustainability, and methods employed for validation, preventing staff exposure to pathogens or chemicals. Using CURIS System and specific protocols, a mass transit organization successfully executed over 100,000 disinfection treatments over a course of less than 7 months.
