An Uncommon Approach To A Common Molecule

Dry Hydrogen Peroxide (DHP)

Synexis is the first to produce hydrogen peroxide in the same physical state as the oxygen and nitrogen in the air. It is not mixed with water or with ozone. Dry Hydrogen Peroxide (DHP) offers a game changing capability for microbial reduction because it makes new strategies possible. With Synexis Biodefense Systems, facility owners and managers have a new tool with a wide area of effect for the ongoing mitigation of microbial threats – even in occupied spaces and out-of-reach areas.

Continuous Wide Area-Of-Effect

Synexis is the first to transform Hydrogen Peroxide, a molecule naturally present in your own body’s immune system, to exist in a gaseous state.   Pioneering a revolutionary new, patented process to disrupt the cycle of a wide spectrum of microbial threats.

By creating small amounts of hydrogen peroxide gas from natural air humidity.  The Synexis System is a suitable, continuous solution with a wide area of effect – even in occupied areas.

Under continuous use, the Synexis Biodefense System achieves sustainable, wide-area reduction of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and mold levels when first deployed. It then remains in effect to combat the propagation of new microbial threats.

Because it is not mixed with water,  the Synexis Biodefense System can achieve efficacy at extremely dilute concentrations on dry surfaces, in the air, and in remote areas.

Hydrogen Peroxide is a natural and essential part of human lung function and of our respiratory defense system.  In our lungs, two enzymes continuously produce hydrogen peroxide, and a third enzyme, Lactoperoxidase, uses hydrogen peroxide to produce an antimicrobial compound that is crucial to respiratory defense.  These enzymes maintain an equilibrium of up to 60,000 molecules of hydrogen peroxide per cubic micron of lung secretion.  

Air with DHP contains a maximum of just 25 molecules of hydrogen peroxide per cubic micron and does not overwhelm the enzymatic system which produces, consumes, and regulates the equilibrium of hydrogen peroxide in our lungs.

Hydrogen peroxide is commonly utilized today in the disinfecting process.   Compared to a cubic micron droplet of hydrogen peroxide vapor, which contains hundreds of millions to billions of hydrogen peroxide molecules, a cubic micron volume of air treated with DHP contains between 5 and 25 molecules of hydrogen peroxide depending on the desired concentration.

A Revolutionary New Technology

The first US patent for the method of creation and use of DHP to remediate environmental microbial contamination was awarded to Lee Antimicrobial Solutions LLC (LAMS) in May, 2012.

To date, six US patents and eleven international patents have now been awarded. 31 additional patents are pending.

Dry Hydrogen Peroxide (DHP) is  generally effective against any organism that is susceptible to other forms of Hydrogen Peroxide.  Although the Synexis Biodefense System has been effective against every species of dry microbe on which it has been tested, Synexis LLC makes no claim of total disinfection or decontamination of all forms of bacteria, viruses, fungi, mold, and new resistant strains. Synexis LLC is continuously testing our systems against a wide spectrum of microbial threats. Please view our data sheets in the Resources section for current test results of the Synexis Biodefense Systems.  Exclusion of an organism from our test data does not imply inefficacy.  As we continue microbial testing, new results will be posted. If your organization is interested in performing tests against a specific microbe or environmental condition, please contact us.
