  • UVGI
  • The objective of this study was to determine if ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI), moist heat incubation (MHI), or microwave-generated steam (MGS) decontamination affects the fitting characteristics, odor, comfort, or donning ease of six N95 filtering facepiece respirator (FFR) models. (mysciencework.com)
  • material
  • Additional experiments (dry heat laboratory oven exposures, off-gassing, and FFR hydrophobicity) were subsequently conducted to better understand material properties and possible health risks to the respirator user following decontamination. (cdc.gov)
  • damage
  • The use of pressurized air is often not recommended because there are many hazards associated with the method, including respiratory and skin damage. (wikipedia.org)
  • effective
  • The method also proved effective against difficult-to-eradicate spores of Bacillus atrophaes (found in soil) and biofilms of Escherichia coli (a cause of food poisoning). (sciencecodex.com)
  • Because hypothermia when conducting decontamination in temperatures below 36 °F, dry decontamination can be an effective solution that prevents more casualties as a result of hypothermia. (wikipedia.org)
  • Controls
  • Wilcoxon signed rank tests compared median values for fit, odor, comfort, and donning ease for each FFR and decontamination method against their respective controls for a given model. (mysciencework.com)
  • OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1030(d)(1) - Method of Compliance: Ensure employees are following all OSHA-mandated engineering and work practice controls through proper supervision, written documentation and photographs. (wikipedia.org)
  • microbes
  • describe a method for detecting infectious disease-causing microbes using labeled nucleotide probes complementary to nucleic acid contained by the pathogenic microbe. (google.com)
  • nuclear
  • From 1946 through 1993, thirteen countries (fourteen, if the USSR and Russia are considered separately) used ocean disposal or ocean dumping as a method to dispose of nuclear/radioactive waste. (wikipedia.org)
  • test
  • Several sampling and analytical methods including thin-layer chromatography (TLC), high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), mass spectrometry, and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), among others, have been used to test for aflatoxin B1 contamination in foods. (wikipedia.org)
  • In September 2000, safety experts from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Duke University, and Science Applications International Corporation reviewed the post-decontamination quality assurance test data and concluded that there was no evidence of any residual contamination in the building. (wikipedia.org)
  • Agent
  • These tanks were used to perfect methods of bacteriological agent production and to provide a source of small amounts of these agents for the development and testing work done elsewhere on the facility. (wikipedia.org)
  • solution
  • Decon Labs, CiDehol™ ST Sterile 70% Isopropyl Alcohol Solution made with WFI is prepared according to USP specifications and packaged in Class 100 cleanroom. (fishersci.com)
  • 2. The method of claim 1 wherein said composition comprises an emulsifying solution comprising a blend of non-ionic emulsifier and anionic emulsifier at a ratio of about 50/50 to about 95/5. (google.com)
  • energy
  • The prepared samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) method, and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) equipped with energy dispersive spectrometry (EDS). (environmental-expert.com)
  • In conjunction with the Office of Fossil Energy, the facility investigates many of the nation's challenges in the production and use of all types of fossil energy systems to include the need to produce new materials for the energy systems of tomorrow and to develop new methods to ameliorate the releases associated with these new systems.
