Battelle's Critical Care Decontamination System for PPE
Delivering Critical Value:
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 decontaminate PPE, including N95 respirators, for the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).
Battelle CCDS can decontaminate thousands of PPE using high concentration, vapor phase hydrogen peroxide. The PPE is exposed for hours at the validated concentration level to decontaminate biological contaminants, including the SARS-CoV-2.

How do Entities Use Battelle CCDS?
Entities will collect worn PPE 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 entity receives its own PPE back.
