Battelle CCDS™

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) decontamination for reuse

 

DELIVERING CRITICAL EQUIPMENT TO HOSPITAL SYSTEMS

The Battelle CCDS Critical Care Decontamination System™ addresses the current shortage of critical Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) across the United States. Battelle CCDS™ is designed to work on N95 respirators for the removal of the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).

How does it work?

Battelle CCDS™ can decontaminate thousands of N95 respirators using concentrated, vapor phase hydrogen peroxide. The respirators are exposed at the validated concentration level to decontaminate biological contaminants, including the SARS-CoV-2. Battelle CCDS can decontaminate the same respirator multiple times without degrading N95 respirator performance.

Regulatory, safety & efficacy

Battelle CCDS™ draws on decades of research and is grounded on an FDA study Battelle completed following a 2016 contagion. Battelle is currently conducting research to validate that other equipment, including surgical masks and ventilator components, can be decontaminated using this process.

COVID Decontamination for Healthcare

How do healthcare systems use Battelle CCDS™?

Healthcare systems will collect worn N95 respirators each day in accordance with an approved procedure, and the PPE will be labeled with a barcoded serial number for tracking the chain-of-custody throughout the decontamination process. This procedure ensures that the hospital system receives its own respirators back.
