Our expert team, lead by Virologist Volha Teagle, Ph.D., is conducting our ISO 17025 against BSL3 pathogens; including SARS-COV-2 and Monkeypox Virus. Our experience in study design and multi-agency regulatory processes prepares us to produce the precise data you need in the timeline you want.

Clinical Mask Fit Testing Expertise

Negative pressure respirators (e.g., N95) are respirators where the air is purified by being pulled inwards through a filtration media during breathing. By design, the efficacy of these respirators relies on the air to pass solely through the incorporated filter. Air leaving through unintended gaps in the respirator’s seal compromise its efficacy and may provide lower-than-desired protection. In light of the recent pandemic, and the subsequent increase in importance of facial coverings, ensuring a respirators appropriate fit has evolved from a matter of personal safety to a matter of public safety. As a result, the ability of a respirator to fit appropriately on the diverse face shapes and sizes of any given community become paramount to that community’s public health. For this reason, fit testing of air-purifying, negative pressure respirators should be conducted by manufacturers to measure how well the respirator seals with faces of different shapes/sizes and thus provide confidence that their respirator fully protects users regardless of their face shape/size
