Disinfectors, Vapor Germicide, Formaldehyde/Ammonia, Enclosure
Definition : Disinfectors designed to kill or inactivate most of the microorganisms (e.g., fungi, viruses, bacteria) inside a relatively small volume (typically less than several cubic meters) container using an automated disinfection cycle based on the vaporization of formalin (i.e., a formaldehyde solution) and subsequent neutralization with ammonia, followed by evaporation of any residual formaldehyde at a temperature about 200?C (close to 400?F). These disinfectors consist of a preprogrammed stand-alone disinfecting unit that is placed inside the container to be disinfected and includes controls and a display that shows the progress of the disinfection procedure. Enclosure disinfectors are intended mainly for decontaminating laboratory microbiological safety cabinets and other microorganism devices intended for isolation (e.g., glove boxes).
