Frequently Asked Questions

Nimbus Machine - white&aqua
  • When is it available?

    Nevoa is scheduling product demonstrations beginning 3Q2018.

  • How effective is it?

    EPA-registered hospital grade disinfectant. This product meets AOAC efficacy testing requirements and achieves Log 6 reduction for multiple pathogens.

  • What efficacy data/research do you have?

    In addition to EPA testing requirements, we do ongoing testing at the U of A in simulated hospital room environment. Test data is available to review.

  • How long does the process take?

    Less than 40 minutes average.

  • Where else is it being used?

    We have the first production unit scheduled for user trial at Southwest Medical Surgery Center.

  • What is the cost?

    $40 average per use. This includes: disinfectant solution, the use of the equipment, supplies, and service. Nevoa has options for customers who would like to procure the equipment outright or lease the equipment for those that are limited on discretionary capital.

  • Is the disinfectant liquid safe for other room furnishings and equipment?

    Yes; far less corrosive than standard hospital cleaning products today (bleach, hydrogen peroxide). Microburst is formulated to achieve Log 6 disinfection at the lowest concentration possible.

  • How does the disinfectant get in every area of the room/bathroom?

    Nimbus is designed to effectively disperse the Microsburst disinfectant solution in all areas of the room. It does this by atomizing the HOCl liquid into a small-micron cloud and distributing it evenly. Our patent-pending Nimbus system has integrated distribution fans, which were perfected using advanced computer modeling (CFD) and verified by efficacy testing.

  • What pathogens have you proven you kill?

    In EPA-required laboratory testing, Nevoa’s Nimbus + Microburst™ system has been proven to kill 99.9999% of Salmonella enterica (S.enterica), Staphylococcus aureus (S.aureus), and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P.aeruginosa). In addition, third-party independant efficacy testing has demonstrated complete disinfection of common HAI sources including MRSA, VRE and C.diff.

  • Can we evaluate the Nimbus™ system in a pilot trial?

    Yes. Nevoa is happy to demonstrate the Nimbus™ system and support limited user evaluations. Depending upon customer requirements, Nevoa may fund a portion of this activity.

  • How does your disinfection system compare to other technologies: UV/HPV?

    Like Hydrogen Peroxide Vapor (HPV) systems, the Nimbus + Microburst system is EPA verified - making the effectiveness in killing pathogens comparable. Unlike HPV, Nimbus + Microburst allow Rapid Room Disinfection & Dehumidification™, which is intended to allow for disinfection of every room, every time a patient is discharged. This allows hospitals to ensure they have the most pathogen free facilities possible. There is no direct efficacy comparison for UV light systems, due to line of sight limitations.

  • What safety precautions are necessary?

    EPA regulations require all fogged disinfectants to be completely contained in the room. The Nimbus™ system includes the training materials and supplies needed to seal the room prior to fogging. The Nimbus™ operating system is controlled via remote tablet computer from outside the room. Additionally, Nimbus has visual (LED) indicators to ensure maximum safety. Microburst may be safely disposed of in municipal sewer systems.

  • What data collection do you provide?

    Nimbus™ automatically logs all system operating parameters, including: date, time, room, user, proper function, process status. Custom data collection is available, including integration with existing hospital information systems.

  • Can we integrate your data into our existing information systems?

    Nimbus™ automatically logs all system operating parameters, including: date, time, room, user, proper function, process status. Custom data collection is available, including integration with existing hospital information systems.
