Patents by Inventor Ricky Mittiga

Ricky Mittiga has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Publication number: 20190388574
    Abstract: Provided herein are methods and compositions for sterilizing a material with a composition comprising peracetic acid and a short chain organic acid stabilizer, for example, oxalic acid or malonic acid. The use of the short chain organic acid stabilizer results in a reduction of the amount of residue deposited on the heating surface used to vaporize the peracetic acid.

  • Publication number: 20180271090
    Abstract: A method of sterilizing a material, said method comprising the steps of: a) providing a sterilizing composition comprising (i) peracetic acid and (ii) a stabilizer selected from the group consisting of citric acid, isocitric acid, aconitic acid and propane-1,2,3-tricarboxylic acid; b) introducing such sterilizing composition into a hot gaseous stream to produce a peracetic acid vapor; and c) contacting such peracetic acid vapor with the material to be sterilized. The use of such an organic acid stabilizer results in an unexpected reduction in the amount of residue deposited on the heating surface employed to vaporize the sterilizing composition.
