Decontamination System Added to EPA’s List N
Oviedo, Fla., July 28, 2020 – CURIS System is proud to announce today that its proprietary CURoxide™ Hydrogen Peroxide blend and fogging system has been approved for inclusion on the Environmental Protection Agency’s List-N to meet the criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). CURoxide has been in use for more than 7 years to stop the spread of infectious disease in commercial settings across the world, including most recently the National Guard, which was deployed to fight against COVID-19. CURoxide shows 99.9999% efficacy in killing the most resistant pathogens.
The CURIS Decontamination System is the first portable, hydrogen peroxide-based fogging system capable of disinfecting a room or enclosed area via patented pulse technology. It has revolutionized disinfection practices and cleaning protocols, changing expectations of germ safety from “attempts to just clean better” to an achievable, measurable kill of 99.9999% of dangerous germs. While most systems rely on dispensing chemicals and turning off once the desired time is achieved or depend on manual spraying, CURIS goes a step further by focusing on a ‘maintained pathogen-kill zone.’ Its system is designed to reduce human error with a hands-free system for remote operation that allows the operator to monitor, manage, measure, track, and report, including the ability to quickly prove, and continuously improve, decontamination efforts.
Traditional cleaning methods, even others approved for COVID-19, often miss surface areas, and many disinfectants that kill 99.9% of germs can leave up to 1,000 harmful organisms behind on surfaces. This was once considered acceptable but not any longer with the onset of COVID-19. Other commercial solutions on the market today have been proven to leave behind dangerous, toxic residues that collect grime and cause corrosion to surfaces, materials, electronics and more. Many of these chemical residues have been linked to neurotoxicity, allergies and anti-microbial resistance in humans.
“We are very proud that our solution has been added to the EPA’s List N to use against SARS-CoV-2,” said Frances Grinstead, CEO of CURIS System. “As organizations scramble and struggle to find solutions to keep their employees and customers safe and their businesses operational, we are confident that our products are effective, efficacious and the safest on the market today – so much so, that we have used these in my own daughter’s school for past infectious outbreaks and felt safe sending her back to a clean and safe environment. In a world turned upside down by pandemic uncertainty, CURIS foggers bring fact-based, science-driven results so companies can know (and not guess) that germs have been eliminated from every surface – decontaminating every nook, cranny and crevice, with no germ left behind,” added Grinstead.
The CURIS Decontamination System is currently in use at and is made to effectively work in such environments as:
Transportation systems, including buses, airplanes, subways, taxis
Emergency Response Operations, including fire stations, police stations
Medical facilities, including hospitals, assisted living/long-term care facilities
Sports facilities and gyms
“The ability to not only disinfect a space thoroughly and effectively AND prove and continually improve those efforts through our proprietary cloud-based reporting system, brings companies and the public the reassurance and peace of mind they deserve in these uncertain times,” said Grinstead.

CURIS SYSTEM Obtains Addition to Its EPA Registration–C. Diff in a Tri-Part Soil Load
ORLANDO, Fla., October 3, 2019 — CURIS System (CURIS®), global manufacturer of disinfection and decontamination products announced the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has approved CURIS’ disinfectant CURoxide™ for use against C. diff in a Tri-part soil load (https://www3.epa.gov/pesticides/chem_search/ppls/093324-00001-20190919.pdf). CURIS’ patented Pulse™ hydrogen peroxide system, combined with its EPA-registered CURoxide solution, provides efficacious decontamination across a multitude of applications.
Frances M. Grinstead, CURIS’ Chief Executive Officer, stated: “This latest amendment to our EPA registration further solidifies our efficacy to achieve a six-log reduction of C. diff in a tri-part soil load. By meeting the EPA’s new and most stringent C. diff disinfection requirements, CURIS demonstrates the ability to kill 99.9999% of C. diff spores in a tri-part soil load and sets itself apart from its competitors. I have always stressed the importance of approval for C. diff as an essential EPA claim for many different markets. As the world of pathogens changes, we see the need for more comprehensive methods of disinfection in multiple markets, not just healthcare but many other spaces, and we are answering the call. Achieving this EPA kill claim makes it possible to take hospital-grade disinfection mobile and passing the test in a tri-part soil load makes our system the leader in taking on this challenge.
Another game changer is to see the language approved to validate the cycle using biological indicators. Now customers can stop relying solely on chemical indicators and use a process that is fact based and science driven. After all, what are we doing if not standing behind our product?
Awareness of CURIS System has increased dramatically as we partner with reputable corporate partners who have tested and experienced the success of CURIS in their unique environments. By meeting their challenges, we repeatedly demonstrate the effectiveness of Pulse™ hydrogen peroxide treatments for whole-space and equipment disinfection. From Baker Company to the National Institute of Health, these studies have solidified our stellar reputation and proven we are successful in multiple scenarios. CURIS System is the new name in trusted disinfection. Stay tuned as we unveil our latest studies.”
CURIS System’s patented Pulse™ technology produces cutting edge efficacy on the hardest to eliminate microorganisms. By automatically cycling on and off, CURIS ensures treated spaces maintain the necessary environment to achieve the highest level of efficacy. Each powerful device brings portable hospital-grade disinfection where you need it, and its patented multi-device operation enables you to scale your treatments from small chambers to large facilities with ease.
