We are using Peridox for decontamination at Vanderbilt. Our rep told us that for decontamination, 2 applications are required with a dwell time of 3 minutes for the second application. We follow with sterile water and alcohol. If you reach out to the company, they have decontamination procedures they can provide.

I use Peridox in my BSC and in my negative pressure rooms. Two applications are required for sporicidal action when cleaning the BSC (see product literature). I love it because it doesn't pit stainless steel like bleach and I don't have to mix anything. We use it in the hoods and on counters, walls, and floors in the negative pressure hazardous drug room. It cleans and doesn't seem to leave a residue. My facility hasn't done wipe testing for chemo residue so I don't have any before/after data since we switched to this product to tell me if it works better for decontamination than a homemade bleach mixture followed by sodium thiosulfate. We do always finish with sIPA when cleaning the BSC. We have found the odor is a bit too much for the positive pressure rooms. I had a sensitive individual have an asthma attack so we switched back to bleach for our sporicidal agent in the positive pressure areas. Personally I think the bleach smell is just as bad but the product does have a warning for asthmatics.

I use the Peridox daily in the BSC for routine cleaning and anytime we need to decontaminate and clean. i tried to use it once/week in the non-hazardous areas but we had the asthma problem with one of our employees.

I have not been rotating in this area. We are just using the Peridox. I use Preempt RTU daily in the clean room with Clorox healthcare germicidal cleaner (bleach) once a week as my sporicidal agent. I probably won't change unless my viable air samples show a problem. Simple is better for all involved.

@ Novant Health Oncology we use Peridox RTU decontaminate and as sporicidal with the recommended 3 minute dwell time. We follow that with a disinfectant with a 3 minute dwell followed by Sterile IPA.

Do you know if two applications of Peridox RTU are required for daily cleaning of a BSC in a negative pressure room after preparation of hazardous drugs? If I am understanding it correctly, the second application is required for sporicidal action which would be a once weekly requirement.
