Original Press Release:
Interscan Announces its New Line of Gas Monitors for the Detection of Hydrogen Peroxide
The New Product Line Is A Companion To The Company's Popular Ethylene Oxide Monitors
Interscan Corporation, a leading independent manufacturer of gas detection systems, is introducing its new line of hydrogen peroxide monitoring instruments. With the addition of this new capability, the company can now detect nineteen different gases with its own proprietary electrochemical voltametric sensors. Available configurations of the new hydrogen peroxide units range from portable survey monitors to permanently installed multipoint systems, with full data acquisition, archiving, and reporting capability.
The first applications, according to Grant McClure, Interscan's Manager of Special Projects, will be in sterile processing departments (SPD) and bio-decontamination. "Over the last year, we have seen a heightened interest from health care people in measuring hydrogen peroxide. We are pleased to respond with a brand-new product line," he said. "The new systems are a perfect complement to our ethylene oxide monitors, a mainstay of SPD areas for more than 20 years."
Although hydrogen peroxide is familiar, and is in common use as a household antiseptic in a 3% solution, higher concentrations can be hazardous and are quite corrosive. The allowable levels of the compound as a gas in ambient air are low: OSHA has set its Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) at 1 ppm on an 8-hour time-weighted average. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), there is limited evidence in experimental animals for the carcinogenicity of hydrogen peroxide.
With a minimum detectability of 0.05 ppm, quick response time, excellent interference rejection (full data available on the company's website), and full scale ranges up to 0-1000 ppm, the new hydrogen peroxide analyzers are set to take on monitoring requirements in health care and beyond.
