Research Facilities


Research facilities can benefit from Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) in many ways:

  • Laboratory Equipment and Surface Disinfection: HOCl can be used to disinfect laboratory equipment, work surfaces, and benchtops. This helps prevent the growth of contaminants and ensures a clean and sterile environment for conducting experiments and research.
  • Biosecurity and Contamination Control: HOCl can help control contamination risks by effectively disinfecting biological safety cabinets, laminar flow hoods, incubators, and other equipment used in handling potentially hazardous materials.
  • Cell Culture Facility Cleaning: HOCl solutions can be used to clean and disinfect cell culture hoods, incubators, and other areas where cell lines and cultures are maintained. Maintaining a sterile environment is crucial for cell-based research.
  • Animal Research Facilities: In facilities where animals are used for research, HOCl can be used for cleaning and disinfecting animal cages, equipment, and surfaces to prevent the spread of diseases and maintain animal welfare.
  • Microbiological Research: For laboratories working with bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms, HOCl can be used to decontaminate workspaces and equipment to prevent cross-contamination and ensure accurate experimental results.
  • Molecular Biology and PCR Labs: HOCl can be used to disinfect tools, pipettes, and work surfaces in molecular biology labs to minimize the risk of DNA or RNA contamination during experiments like polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
  • Cleanroom Maintenance: Research facilities with cleanrooms can benefit from using HOCl to maintain the cleanliness and sterility of these controlled environments, critical for semiconductor fabrication, nanotechnology, and other advanced research.
  • Laboratory Biosafety: HOCl can be used for routine disinfection in biosafety level (BSL) laboratories, where researchers work with infectious agents. Proper disinfection helps prevent accidental exposure and releases.
  • Shared Instrumentation: HOCl can be used to disinfect shared instruments and equipment used by multiple researchers, reducing the risk of cross-contamination.
  • Emergency Response: In the event of a spill or potential biohazard exposure, HOCl can be used for rapid disinfection to minimize risks to researchers and the surrounding environment.
