Case Study – MRSA Vessel ICT

When an ocean vessel serving as a research ship was faced with an outbreak of MRSA, a doctor employed by the shipping industry was tasked with locating someone to handle decontamination. The responsibility fell to New Jersey-based Infection Control Technologies (ICT), a TOMI Service Network provider who promptly responded by deploying their biohazard response team to address the situation. To mitigate the spread of infection, this response team was equipped with today’s most advanced disinfection tool: SteraMist® Binary Ionization Technology (BIT).

To disinfect the vessel, an extensive protocol was created to thoroughly disinfect and decontaminate each and every surface onboard. This included detailed application of SteraMist®
to both systems and furnishings, including water sensitive touch points throughout the ship.

Despite the unusual nautical environment, SteraMist® ionized Hydrogen Peroxide (iHP™) technology and Infection Control Technologies were successfully able to perform biological decontamination on the MRSA outbreak plaguing the research vessel.
