"The BIOSPRAY-10 gives us peace of mind. It is very easy to use, and safe for staff, guests, and the animals here."
The Mystic Aquarium mission is pure and simple; to inspire people to care for and protect our ocean planet through conservation, education, and research. As the largest cultural attraction in Connecticut and the fourth largest in New England, the Aquarium offers a wide array of educational and engaging programs including up-close encounters with marine animals, programming that focuses on educating students of all ages, and fostering the next generation of environmental stewards. When COVID-19 hit, the Aquarium was forced to shut down temporarily in support of the global effort to contain the spread of the coronavirus. As a result, Mystic Aquarium, which relies heavily on revenue from ticket sales, has lost millions -- and has been forced to make changes to the guest experience to ensure the health and safety of the animals in their care, their staff, and visitors.
Throughout the Aquarium campus dedicated custodial staff provides continuous deep cleaning during operating hours and overnight deep cleaning nightly. There are many high-touch areas that need to be continuously maintained; main entrance, gift store, café, theater, main gallery, railings, exhibits, and more. The problem - how can these staff members fulfill their duties?
Not only did the Aquarium need to find a safe and effective sanitation method, but they also needed something portable that did not cause any hazards to the guests or animals. “The BIOSPRAY-10 gives us peace of mind that our guests will not be walking over cords or inconvenienced.” -Mystic Aquarium.
“The BIOSPRAY-10 system sanitizes and disinfects quicker than other manual methods. As a non-profit, overhead expenses need to be carefully managed, and the BIOSPRAY-10 and BIOSPRAY D2 system did just that. With less labor and chemical costs.” - Keith Sorensen, SVP Facilities
“BIOSPRAY-10 and BIOSPRAY D2 were a natural choice for us. Since the BIOSPRAY-10 system is portable, moving from spot to spot is seamless and incredibly easy. The system uses CO2 to power the sprayer, which makes it a more convenient and safe option, more so than a corded system. Overall, BIOSPRAY has added so much value for us, and has made our sanitation process easy and efficient, which has helped keep our doors open safely.” -Keith Sorensen, SVP Facilities
