Model masks
New antimicrobial respirator mask technology has been introduced by Nexera Medical, Inc. (Nexera). Considered the model for next-generation respirator masks, Nexera’s SpectraShield 9900 and SpectraShieldTM Plus FFP3 Antimicrobial Masks (SpectraShield) begin to kill bacteria and viruses immediately on contact, and have tested filtration performance equivalent to a N99 or greater. The SpectraShields are available in both adult and children’s sizes, and give public health officials and first responders the best available protection against viruses and diseases, Nexera said. Canadian health authorities have approved the mask to be reused for up to 28 days, and it recently received regulatory approval in the EU as an antimicrobial FFP3 respirator, the company added.
