Vaporised hydrogen peroxide (VHP) has antimicrobial properties and so has decontamination and sterilisation applications, with an added benefit of working at low temperatures.

With a wide kill spectrum that includes bacteria, spores, fungi and viruses, VHP decontamination chambers can be preferred to autoclaves as they put less pressure on products and use less energy.

Can also be known as HPV (Hydrogen Peroxide Vapour).
