Decontamination provider Curis System announced that its proprietary Curoxide Hydrogen Peroxide blend and portable fogging system has been approved for inclusion on the EPA’s List-N, meaning it meets criteria for disinfection use against the Covid-19 virus on hard, non-porous surfaces.
Launched in 2014, the company’s fogging system was designed to reduce human error with a hands-free system that allows the operator to monitor, manage, measure, track, and report on decontamination efforts. It uses patented pulse technology to spread a hydrogen peroxide fog to achieve a kill rate of 99.9999 percent against even the most resistant pathogens. Unlike some other methods deployed in the fight against the virus, Curis’s system—which is being used in various transportation systems, emergency response operations, medical facilities, laboratories, and military facilities—does not leave behind surface residues that can collect grime and cause corrosion.
“As organizations scramble and struggle to find solutions to keep their employees and customers safe and their businesses operational, we are confident that our products are effective, efficacious and the safest on the market today,” said Curis System CEO Frances Grinstead. “In a world turned upside down by pandemic uncertainty, Curis foggers bring fact-based, science-driven results so companies can know, and not guess, that germs have been eliminated from every surface.”
