Eliminol is a chemical masking agent designed to eliminate biological matter. It will break down living matter into its base components and as a side effect of this process causes the residue to be undetectable to conventional means of discovery until above TL–12. Eliminol will also break down DNA and all cell structures however it is slow acting, generally taking 24 hours for the process to complete. Sold in a spray pack Eliminol was created to help crime scene clean-up crews sanitize sites. Its masking properties have not escaped the notice of criminal elements, often driving up the price tenfold on the black market of lower tech worlds. Eliminol can only be transported within the Imperium by registered biohazard transport companies.

Eliminol is difficult to manufacture as a key ingredient is an enzyme extracted from a deep sea algae on Kaagin (Reaver's Deep 2516). Therisys has been granted sole rights to harvesting the algae for 30 years by the Regent of Kaag.
