Criteria Steris VHP Process BioQuell VHP Process
Sterilization process Dry Wet (condensation)
Repeatable process, easily Yes No, larger fluctuations in H2O2
validated concentration due to
condensation
Reach low humidity levels Yes No
Control of H2O2 concentration Yes Yes, harder to control compared
to dry process
Typical use concentrations 0.1-2 mg/l Unknown, variable
Aeration time Short (3hrs for the entire cycle) Very long (current 10 hrs.)
Condensation No condensation, dry gas May get condensed on HEPA
filter, causing lower
concentration
