SteraMist™ Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT™)
BIT™ was developed in response to Amerithrax, the anthrax attacks that occurred in Washington, D.C. shortly after the September 11, 2001 US terrorist attacks. It is a patented two-step process that aerosolizes and activates a low concentration hydrogen peroxide solution producing a fine aqueous mist that contains a high concentration of Reactive Oxidative Species (ROS), mostly hydroxyl radicals. ROS cause damage to pathogenic organisms via mechanisms such as oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids such as carbohydrates, lipids, and amino acids leading to cellular disruption and/or dysfunction. The unique alteration of the chemistry of our solution occurs after passing our EPA registered BIT™ Solution through our atmospheric high voltage cold plasma arc which causes the breaking of the double bond of a hydrogen peroxide molecule. The net result is the hydroxyl radical. This hydroxyl radical is known as Activated Ionized Hydrogen Peroxide (AIHP). The TOMI™ patented process allows these ROS (hydroxyl radicals) to exist in high concentrations without rapidly recombining and losing their reactivity.
Testing detailed by DARPA demonstrates these ROS, which include the hydroxyl ion and hydroxyl radicals, aggressively break the double bonds in bacterial spores, biological and Chemical warfare agents (BWA and CWA) neutralizing their threat and producing non-toxic by-products.
Brought to the commercial market by TOMI™ in June 2013, our current suite of products includes the SteraMist™ Surface Unit, the SteraMist™ Environment System, and BIT™ Solution. Our SteraMist™ BIT™ platform has expanded beyond the initial chemical and biological warfare applications to deactivate problem microorganisms (including spores) in healthcare, laboratory, clean rooms, and a wide variety of other commercial and residential settings. SteraMist™ BIT™ provides fast acting biological deactivation and works in even the most hard-to-reach areas while leaving no residue or noxious fumes. The by-products produced by SteraMist™ BIT™ are oxygen and humidity.
The SteraMist™ Surface Unit is a fully portable fast-acting, hand held, point and spray disinfection/decontamination system. It is a safe and easy process to make certain that your facility, home, and assets are disinfected/decontaminated to the maximum extent possible. The single applicator Surface Unit enables disinfection of all surfaces–including high touch, sensitive medical equipment, and electronics. The space is safe to re-enter within minutes after the Activated Ionized Hydrogen Peroxide (AIHP) mist has been applied. The EPA registered 5-second application time AND 7-minute contact time seamlessly results in quick room turnover while eliminating pathogens such as MRSA and H1N1.
TOMI’s SteraMist™ Surface Unit is lightweight, easy to transport, and capable of achieving reliable disinfection/decontamination as it is easily incorporated into current cleaning procedures and protocols. The hydroxyl radicals produced by TOMI’s plasma science does not require heating, ventilation, or air conditioning systems to be shut down and requires no wiping, leaves no residue and is a bleach, chlorine, formaldehyde, glutaraldehyde, titanium dioxide, peracetic and silver ion free formula.
The SteraMist™ Environment System is a transportable remotely controlled system that provides complete room disinfection/decontamination of a sealed space, up to 103.8 m3 (3,663 ft3). Individually, each remote applicator can be used to treat a space of approximately 34.6 m3 (1,221 ft3). Multiple Environment Systems can be used simultaneously to accommodate larger spaces. Fast application = minimal down time. Mechanical cleaning that makes whole room disinfecting/decontaminating easier. With this automated touch-less application solution you can treat multiple areas simultaneously. Our hybrid technology – applicators can be used in manual and/or fogging modes. Great for frequent daily use, saves time and labor. SteraMist™ is a powerful technology in fighting, reducing and eliminating bacteria including C. diff spores and when you reenter the room you can “smell the clean”
