Developed in coordination with DARPA after the anthrax attacks of 9-11, Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT™) was created to deal with all types of biological threats. Brought to the commercial market in 2013 by TOMI™, SteraMist™ BIT™ is a patented two-step process that activates a less than 8% hydrogen peroxide solution producing a fine mist that contains a high concentration of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS). The unique physical chemistry of Activated Ionized Hydrogen Peroxide (AIHP)
allows the ROS to exist in without rapidly recombining and losing their reactivity. These ROS, which include the hydroxyl ion along with other radicals, aggressively break the double bonds in microorganisms (including spores) in a wide variety of commercial settings, achieving complete room surface disinfection. Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT™) is an EPA registered combination solution and application technology for use as a hospital-healthcare disinfectant. (EPA registration # 90150-2)
