Manual disinfection of surfaces and rooms is costly and time-consuming. Disinfecting by hand also comes with the risk that hard-to-reach spots may be missed, with the result that decontamination is usually significantly less than 100%.

Automatic room and surface decontamination from SKAN produces completely different results. Large areas can be decontaminated at the touch of a button, with no need to wipe down manually afterwards. Viruses, bacteria and other microorganisms are quickly and reliably eliminated, minimising the downtime of essential areas and therefore reducing costs.


Laboratories, offices, apartment buildings, medical centres, hospital rooms, hospitality, ambulances, food processing, hotels, aseptic pharmaceutical production, greenhouses, veterinary practices and many more.

Frequently asked questions

  • How will the rooms be decontaminated?

    The Saniswiss disinfection unit aHP automatically calculates how much disinfection agent is needed based on the volume of the room. Disinfecting the room air and all surfaces takes just a few minutes, including areas that the eye tends to miss. The unit switches off automatically at the end of every cycle.
    A 1000 W air turbine produces a large vortex that ensures rapid, even distribution.

  • What kinds of contamination is room decontamination effective against?

    SKAN decontamination covers a wide range of pathogens that are commonly found in our environment.

    • Bactericidal effect, e.g.:
      • MRSA, multiresistant staphylococcus
      • VRE, resistant enterococci
    • Virucidal effect, e.g.:
      • Noroviruses
      • Coronaviruses
    • Fungicidal effect, e.g.:
      • Aspergillus niger
      • Sporicidal effect
  • What kind of decontamination agent is used?

    The decontamination agent used by SKAN is Saniswiss Biosanitizer. This naturally produced product has a hydrogen peroxide content of < 12%. Its high effectiveness is due to a special treatment process during production.
    The decontamination agent leaves no residues on surfaces or in the air.
    The biosanitizer contains only a small amount of water, thus avoiding negative effects such as corrosion on technical equipment.
    It is also free of alcohol, aldehydes, phenols, peracetic acid and preservatives.

  • How should the room be prepared for decontamination?

    To protect the environment, doors and windows must be closed. Room ventilation systems must be switched off and fire detectors and gas sensors must be deactivated. Furniture and electronic equipment can remain in the room during the decontamination process.

  • How is successful decontamination verified?

    The decontamination result can be verified and validated using biological indicators produced by SKAN. Each stainless steel carrier is inoculated with bacterial spores of Geobacillus stearothermophilus.

    The indicators are positioned at critical locations in the room. After an incubation period of 7 days the indicators will show whether the decontamination process has eliminated the spores.

    An alternative means to check the decontamination process is to use chemical indicators, which show directly whether surfaces in the room have come into contact with enough H2O2.
