The TOMI technology is a decontamination system that applies cold plasma activation to a low percentage hydrogen peroxide-based aerosol, which then produces a Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) mist that deactivates organic compounds and quickly inactivates viruses and bacteria including bacterial spores (C. diff) as well as mold spores, other fungi and yeast, both in the air and on surfaces. Leaving no residue or noxious fumes, SteraMist usage provides fast-acting, broad-spectrum decontamination, is environmentally friendly and is also safe for delicate medical equipment and computers.
