Howorth Bio Technology


Under Howorth’s registered product brand name, BioGen™, our new bio-technology division will supply DVHP™ (Dry Vapour Hydrogen Peroxide) systems and decontamination equipment into both our long established Healthcare and Pharmaceutical market sectors, as well as developing DVHP™ systems for Life Sciences, Veterinary and Food Processing and Manufacturing markets.

Whether it is controlling Healthcare-associated infections or eradicating micro-organisms, such as bacteria, fungi and yeasts, in the high hygiene requirements of the food industry, or integrating our bespoke DVHP™ rapid gassing fumigation systems into cGMP Pharmaceutical process equipment like Compounding Isolators, or pre-occupational decontamination of Biotechnology environments and facilities, Howorth’s BioGen™ DVHP™ generators and aeration systems are the products of choice for many end users in today’s financially, and technically driven markets.

All BioGen’s™ new family of DVHP™ standard model generators are designed around unique Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) technology. This highly successful technology has been developed over many years, and is applicable in both pre-occupational decontamination and service, as well as equipment supply projects.

Howorth’s BioGen™ DVHP™ vapour phase fumigation system ensures consistent, repeatable and reliable results with efficient 6 log-106 Kill rates; minimal aeration phase back down to W.E.L. (work exposure limit) of 1 p.p.m. (8 hrs T.W.A.); precise H2O2 balance, via single or multiple nozzle systems. A unique function of the BioGen™ system is its real time cycle monitoring displayed or downloaded immediately to P.C. or on-site BMS to give immediate customer confidence that the decontamination cycle has been effective.

The BioGen™ generated DRY vapour evaporates within 150mm of the ultrasonic nozzle(s), and does not settle or disperse on contact with surfaces, so no wetting or micro-condensation occurs.

BioGen™ DVHP™ generator models are simple and flexible, have no moving parts, are easy to operate and maintain and, importantly in today’s challenging economic climate, are extremely competitive to purchase, operate and maintain when compared to other systems.

All validated results, confirmed via BIs (biological indicators), prove that Howorth’s BioGen™ DVHP™ vapour phase fumigation systems are an effective bactericide, virucide and sporicide and are biodegradable, leaving no residue.
