This year Biological Controls
celebrates its 40th year anniversary.
We have been recognized as one of the first companies to market and
distribute products for clean room applications and contamination
control back in 1973.
The industry was in its infancy and the concept of creating and maintaining
clean and contamination free environments was alien to many industries.
Major pharmaceutical, research, electronic component manufacturers,
military and government agencies were just some of a cross section
of customers we have serviced.
Starting essentially as a distributor of products for the last 20
years, the transition to design and manufacture was a giant leap for
the company. In the early 90's, with the advent and resurgence of
TB, the company took a different approach and direction in designing
and building equipment specifically for airborne infection control
applications. The first product to be developed was our MICROCON®
800 air purification system. Many months of engineering, and experimentation
went into the design to finalize the product. The heart of the system
was an absolute or HEPA filter, the same well established and proven
filtration technology that had been utilized and embraced by the high
tech and medical establishments. The location and process of air intake
and exhaust was deemed critical to its functionality and uniqueness.
When coupled with germicidal UV lamps, (UVGI), which also had
a long and established track record, the result was a system that
was immediately embraced by the health
care (healthcare) community for protection against airborne
pathogens. Understandably, the MICROCON® 800 proved to be an immediate
The MICROCON® 800 was the first mobile air purifier introduced
to address the safety concerns of Health
Care (Healthcare) workers, the medical staff and caregivers
working in hospital settings, where the risk and exposure to airborne
pathogens was the greatest. The MICROCON® is unique in design
and is the only product of its kind to be issued a US Patent. From
the original MICROCON® 800 concept a full range of other products
bearing the MICROCON® label have been introduced over the last
The MICROCON® product line can be found today providing airborne
infection protection throughout thousands of hospitals, medical facilities
and clinic applications throughout the US and worldwide.
Air purification in every conceivable configuration, air pressure
monitoring and creation of isolation rooms and enclosures are just
some of the products we offer to the worldwide market.
Early in 2007 we introduced the newest product to our air purification
family, Airephase™, a high capacity, high efficiency air purifier
with high intensity germicidal UV lamps. This product was specifically
designed for pandemic preparedness and hospital surge capacity applications.
So in virtually any emergency or isolation condition there is a product
available from us that will create a compliant and safe environment
Recent biohazard and bioterrorism threats offer us additional challenges
as we start our 40th year. Fortunately, because of the breadth of
our product line many products within our family are well suited to
address those issues.
As we rose to the occasion in the past, we now rise to meet the challenge
of 21st century airborne infection control.
