Hydrogen Peroxide Vapour (HPV) Bio Decontamination for rooms and surfaces


Raumdesinfektion mit Wasserstoffperoxid (H2O2) und Silberionen.

Hydrogen peroxide vapour (HPV) is well established as a bio-decontamination agent due to its "residue free" nature (the only residues are oxygen and water) and low temperature, vapour-phase application. HPV has been tested against many organisms and classes of organisms.


Hydrogen peroxide vapour is rapidly becoming the accepted alternative to formaldehyde for regulatory health and safety agencies and is proven to be highly effective in deactivating vegetative and spore forming bacteria, viruses and fungi. In the past as well as during current studies DIOP could identify among other things the following germs, just to name a few:


  • Staphylococcus aureus (incl. MRSA)
  • Pseudomonas
  • Penicillum
  • Proteus
  • Micrococcus
  • Schimmelpilze (moulds)
  • Streptococcus
  • HIV
  • Hepatitis
  • Aspergillus


According to the presently available expertises above mentioned virus, bacteria, fungi can be successfully eliminated with the DioProtection-System.

The list will be updated by Prof. Dr. Andreas Schwarzkopf when appropriate.


The main benefits of Hydrogen Peroxide Vapour (HPV) are:


Biocompatible: there is only water and oxygen being used during the decontamination process. DIOP is using its self-produced disinfectant called Diosol which is 99,9% biocompatible containing silver ions in order to enhace the disinfection effect and effectiveness.

Safe and reliable: HPV is non-carcinogenic unlike formaldehyde which is classified as highly carcinogenic by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Material compatible: when used efficiently following the manufacturer's instructions HPV does not damage sensitive electronic, electrical equipment or any furnitures.

Rapid: the whole process of Bio-decontamination by HPV is rapid as there is no need rewipe the disinfected surfaces (residue-free nature).

Wide spectrum: Diosol is a high level disinfectant effective against a wide range of biological pathogens and germs.
