SixLog Corporation, an Astro Pak company providing onsite room disinfection and sterilization services, announces it will showcase its iHP (ionized hydrogen peroxide) technology at the annual meeting of the American Society for Healthcare Environmental Services (ASHES) Sept. 27-28 at booth 536 at the Gaylord National Resort in National Harbor, Md.
SixLog provides room disinfection and sterilization services using its patented misting system to effectively eradicate microorganisms such as Clostridium difficile (C. diff), vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE), methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Acinetobacter and other multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs). This spore-killing iHP system is the next-generation of hydrogen peroxide fogging systems that successfully eliminates pathogens from all environmental surfaces and is faster and more cost effective than alternatives. SixLog's room disinfection and sterilization services can easily augment hospitals' terminal cleaning protocol and place current practices at the cutting edge of infection control.
"I am excited to attend ASHES and demonstrate our new room sterilization technology," says Vanessa Valdez, general manager of SixLog. "Environmental services (ES) departments across the nation are looking for innovative solutions to eradicate the growth of infection-producing organisms. SixLog's iHP room sterilization technology enables ES professionals to quickly and effectively deploy a service that will have a fast impact on reducing the number of HAIs. We offer fully integrated and customized solutions for preventive room sterilization and/or outbreak control."
In addition the proven efficacy of iHP, it is also compatible with patient support equipment, including sensitive electronics, as it is noncorrosive. iHP leaves no residue behind, and upon completion, breaks down into just water and oxygen making it safe for staff, patients and visitors as well as the environment. A few examples of iHP room disinfection/sterilization applications include emergency and patient rooms, isolation rooms, ICUs, surgical suites, tissue culture labs, bone marrow transplant suites, blood banks, and sputum-induction areas
