Prevention

 

Biorisk reduction combines expertise and advice on high-consequence pathogens with guidance and training on safe handling and control of disease agents that pose significant health risks, with potential for adverse economic impact and public concern.

 

The goal of biorisk reduction is to ensure that current scientific knowledge regarding viral hemorrhagic fevers, epidemic-prone orthopoxviruses, and emerging severe zoonotic diseases affecting humans, is maintained in order to apply the most appropriate guidance for treatment, control, and safety to mitigate the risks regardless of the source of the disease event.

 

Experience is gained through outbreak response, managing clinical and laboratory environments, networking with subject matter experts and developing partnerships with stakeholders.

 

As part of biorisk prevention procedures, one of the main concerns is the ability to isolate the disease or the infected patients. This can be achieved by having Isolation Rooms, where the exhausted air is not recirculated but instead first filtered and then directed outside the premises.

 

Isolation facilities include the following types

 

  • Negative pressure room, where others are protected from any airborne transmission from a patient who may be an infection risk, Class N
  • Negative pressure room with additional barriers including an anteroom, also known as Class Q for quarantine isolation.
  • Normal rooms can also be transformed into Isolation rooms if the air is duly filtered and dispatched outdoors.

 

Most common parameters to be monitored in these rooms

 

  • Differential Pressure (0.03 WC) – between the isolation room and the area to be protected (ex.: corridor)
  • ACH – Air Changes per Hour inside the room ( isolation ACH 12)

 

Critical points when creating an Isolation Room

 

  1. Installing a Filtering Unit on the extract
  2. Be certain that the air is being extracted to the outdoors and not recirculated
  3. Air Balancing – create negative pressure inside the room
  4. Room Pressure and ACH monitor

 

Turn-key solution for Isolation Rooms

 

Installing a Filtering Unit on the extract:

1.     Genano 5250 – 500 m3/h (all rooms)

2.     Genano Tube XS – 300 m3/h (option for small rooms up to 25 m3)

 

Genano’s patented electric air purification method purifies indoor air even of nanoscale impurities. The method eliminates organic microbes, such as viruses, bacteria and mold. In addition, the method removes dangerous VOCs and smells.

 

All the units have an extremely low-cost maintenance compared to HEPA filtration units. Efficiency is their biggest advantage as seen below:

Genano air decontamination unit

 

  • A Genano 5250 air decontamination unit is part of the Isolation Room Concept.
  • Be certain that the air is being extracted to the outdoors and not recirculated.
  • Exhaust will be done with the Genano unit.
  • The air outlet of the unit has to be connected to a duct, from where the “decontaminated” air will be delivered 100% outdoors. This duct should not be connected to any recirculating system or duct.

 

Air Balancing  – create negative pressure inside the room

 

Differential Pressure

Air Changes per Hour (ACH)

 

Air balancing is done on the air supply of the room, either by the manual control of the air valves or by the building management system (BMS).

 

It is extremely important that the room is airtight, the ceiling, doors and walls have to be completely sealed. Having leakages will affect the performance and the differential pressure readings.

Electric Duct Filter cleans impurities of all sizes from the incoming air. 

Genano stand-alone air decontamination unit ensures contaminants within the room will be eliminated

by capturing particles from the room air.

Cleanroom concept_4

 

The supply air of the central ventilation is led into the room through the Genano air purifier

The device is capable of controlling the positive pressure difference, which should be 5–10 Pa relative to adjacent spaces. To obtain maximal results, the supply air should be at least 20 % more than the exhaust air and the air leakage should be under control.

 

Negative pressure installation, to prevent contaminated air spreading out of the room

 

Cleanroom concept_3

 

With a negative pressure kit, the stand-alone air contamination unit can be connected to the existing ventilation system

for creating a negative pressure into the room, while removing the airborne contaminants from the air.
