The EPA publishes strict guidelines to test and verify the efficacy of cleaning and decontamination solutions.

To verify the efficiency and log reduction of SteraMist™ proprietary technology, six laboratories were engaged to test against a wide variety of some of the most harmful microbial pathogens with the following results.

This list is by no means exhaustive. SteraMist™ and BIT™ have proven field efficacy against a wide range of contaminants.
