In 2007, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security first purchased Zimek's Micro-Mist® Rapid Decontamination Systems for use by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for deployment at its facilities at Mount Weather, Virginia pursuant to a sole source technology agreement.

Micro-Mist® Systems have since been utilized by the Department of Homeland Security throughout the U.S. to help protect fire fighters and EMS first responders from dangerous pandemic and epidemic threats involving multi-drug resistant bacteria and viruses, including MRSA, TB, and the bird and swine flu viruses.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) began purchasing Micro-Mist® Systems in 2009, with deployments at Battle Creek, Michigan and Martinsburg, Virginia.

Infectious bacteria brought back from Iraq and Afghanistan, in particular Acinetobacter baumanni, are wreaking havoc on our veterans making VA healthcare facilities much more susceptible to healthcare-associated infectious diseases.

Our veterans should be protected at home as well as abroad, and Zimek's Micro-Mist® Rapid Decontamination Systems are a proven force multiplier in the fight against infectious diseases suffered by our veterans.

In today's economy, government budgets have been reduced substantially. One of the greatest challenges our first responder customers face is finding funding to acquire Zimek's life-saving products. 

Because we are utilized by many government entities, federal, state, and local grant funding opportunities have become available for specific markets, particularly fire/EMS departments, hospitals, and public transportation authorities.
