CLAIMS

1 . A dispensing system for dispensing a fluid into the atmosphere, wherein the system comprises a reservoir for containing a liquid solution, and a quick release coupling for manually connecting and disconnecting a first end of a capillary member outside the reservoir to an outlet of the reservoir, wherein the quick release coupling provides a fluid connection between the interior of the reservoir and the capillary member, such that the capillary member is able to draw by capillary attraction up the liquid solution from the reservoir from the first end connected to the quick release coupling towards its second end for dispensing a gaseous fluid into the atmosphere by the capillary member by means of evaporation of the liquid solution.

2. A dispensing system according to claim 1 , wherein the system comprises a conduit for transporting the liquid solution having a first end section connected to the outlet of the reservoir and having a second end section provided with or connected to the quick release coupling.

3. A dispensing system according to claim 1 or 2, wherein the system comprises a flow regulator for controlling the flow of the liquid solution to the capillary member.

4. A dispensing system according to at least one of the preceding claims, wherein the capillary member is a wick, preferably the wick has a length between 0.01 - 5.0 m and/or a diameter between 0.5-5 cm.

5. A dispensing system according to at least one of the preceding claims, wherein the quick release coupling has a male part and a female part connected or to be connected to the capillary member, wherein the male part can be manually detachably connected in the female part and/or disconnected from the female part.

6. A dispensing system according to at least one of the preceding claims, wherein the system comprises a frame structure for carrying the reservoir, wherein the reservoir is located by means of the frame structure at a higher position seen from the underground than a major portion of the capillary member.

7. A dispensing system according to at least one of the preceding claims, wherein a portion of the capillary member comprises an outer sleeve of material impervious to the liquid solution, surrounding the capillary member.

8. A dispensing system according to at least one of the preceding claims, wherein the liquid solution is a volatile liquid solution.

9. A dispensing system according to at least one of the preceding claims, wherein the liquid solution is a disinfecting solution comprising antimicrobial agents, preferably containing hydrogen peroxide, more preferred the liquid solution comprises 3 - 70% by weight of hydrogen peroxide, still more preferred the liquid solution comprises 40 - 55% by weight of hydrogen peroxide.

10. A dispensing system according to at least one of the preceding claims, wherein the reservoir is a bag, preferably an intravenous (IV) bag.

1 1 . Room, for example a clean room or an incubator or a cooling unit

(refrigerator), wherein the room is equipped with at least one dispensing system according to at least one of the preceding claims.

12. Room according to claim 1 1 , wherein the reservoir is located outside the room, wherein at least the second end of the capillary member is located inside the room.

13. A method for dispensing a fluid into the atmosphere, wherein the method uses a reservoir containing a liquid solution, and a quick release coupling for manually connecting and disconnecting a first end of a capillary member outside the reservoir to an outlet of the reservoir, wherein the quick release coupling provides a fluid connection between the interior of the reservoir and the capillary member, such that the capillary member draws by capillary attraction up the liquid solution from the reservoir from the first end connected to the quick release coupling towards its second end to dispense a gaseous fluid into the atmosphere by the capillary member by means of evaporation of the liquid solution.

14. Method according to claim 13, wherein the method dispenses 10-2500 ml liquid solution per hour into the atmosphere, preferably dispenses 10-500 ml liquid solution per hour into the atmosphere.

15. Method according to claim 13 or 14, wherein the liquid solution evaporates as a disinfecting gas into the atmosphere, preferably the atmosphere is the atmosphere in a room, for example a room as defined in claim 1 1 or 12.

16. Method according to claim 13, 14 or 15, wherein the method provides an atmosphere having between 50-300 ppm liquid solution from the reservoir per cubic meter.

17. Method according to claim 13, 14, 15 or 16, wherein the liquid solution is a disinfecting solution comprising antimicrobial agents, preferably comprising hydrogen peroxide, more preferred the liquid solution comprises 3 - 70% by weight of hydrogen peroxide, still more preferred the liquid solution comprises 40 - 55% by weight of hydrogen peroxide.

18. Method according to claim 17, wherein the liquid solution is Aqua-Clean.
