Mask Decontamination

Technical Safety Services, LLC

The FDA has issued an emergency use authorization to Technical Safety Services (TSS) for the use of vaporized hydrogen peroxide (HP) to decontaminate compatible N95 respirators for multiple-user reuse by health care personnel. TSS has engineered and customized a scalable decontamination system for this process; all decontamination cycles will occur onsite or in a preferred central location with the ability to process up to 5000 masks per cycle in each CS-20 system. Two cycles per day can be run with each system, and the method is fully validated to consistently deliver a 6-log reduction in bioburden based on a minimum dosage of hydrogen peroxide per disinfection cycle. Decontamination will allow these important devices to be reused by health care personnel during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, and a chain of custody and flow path have been created for each hospital to ensure a safely managed process. TSS works with each organization to ensure compliance with local and national regulatory standards.
