How can we effectively decontaminate an

occupied space?

Today’s Technologies:

Currently most facilities employ a routine regiment of one or more of the following to help with a building’s environmental hygiene. These methods produce variable efficacy based on number of tactics implemented and level of adherence to ongoing cleaning, monitoring and inspection protocols.

Manual cleaning and testing of surfaces by personnel

This can have a rapid effect without the need of capital equipment purchases, but may be labor intensivewith variable efficacy.

PROS

  • Rapid effect
  • No capital equipment purchase

CONS

  • Labor intensive
  • Consistency variable based on thoroughness
  • Does not address airborne pathogens
  • Intermittent solution for a continuous problem

UV – Vaporized Agents

Periodic decontamination by exposing microbes to toxic doses of UV light or vaporized agents:

Although suitable for heavier contamination and treating out of reach areas, the process is harmful to humans and the space must be unoccupied for longer periods of time.

PROS

  • Suitable for heavy contamination
  • Can disinfect out of reach / neglected surfaces

CONS

  • Harmful to humans
  • Requires space to be unoccupied
  • Long treatment times
  • High capital equipment costs
  • Recontamination between uses

Antimicrobial Surfaces

These inhibit microorganism growth and provide a continuous effect without significant maintenance or change in workflow, but the effects are isolated only to treated surfaces.

PROS

  • Continuous effect
  • No significant maintenance or change in workflow required

CONS

  • Isolated to treated surface
  • Variable and debatable efficacy
  • Broad utilization can lead to significant capital expense

The Synexis Biodefense System

Responding to the need for continuous, reliable decontamination of occupied areas and remote spaces, Synexis has created the next evolution of technologies to control the spread of viruses, bacteria, and mold.  Versatile and cost-effective, the Synexis Biodefense System creates an immune system for your building and acts as a persistent, protective barrier from environmental threats to your personnel and property.

The Synexis Biodefense System can also be combined with other microbial control technologies and monitoring systems to achieve microbial control milestones not possible with existing microbial control technologies alone.

  • Effective against bacteria, viruses, fungi, mold, and new resistant strains
  • Sustainable microbial reduction
  • Effective in out of reach areas
  • Effective against airborne microbes
  • Reduces risk of cross and recontamination
  • Replicates a natural process
  • Comfort and safety of occupants
  • No odors, chemicals, or solvents
  • No bright lights
  • Continuous wide area of effect
  • Flexibility and ease of operation
  • Low operating and maintenance costs
  • No requirement to refill solutions
  • No labor commitment

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.
