New surgical masks with an clever material can instantaneously deactivate SARS-COV-2 virus

The clever material of those masks has been created by a workforce of researchers from the San Alberto Magno Traslational Centre (CITSAM-UCV), led by professor Ángel Serrano.

The Catholic College of Valencia and Valencian firm Visor Medical, producer of preventive well being know-how for innovation, have launched a kind IIR surgical masks with an clever material that may instantaneously deactivate the SARS-COV-2 virus that’s liable for COVID19.

The clever material of those masks has been created due to the work of a workforce of researchers from the CITSAM-UCV led by professor Ángel Serrano. Mentioned material, in addition to deactivating the SARS-COV-2 virus, additionally neutralizes different enveloped viruses, such because the one which causes the flu, and antibiotic-resistant micro organism resembling Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis, that are immune to methicillin.

From Visor Medical, CEO Maravillas Viudes says that the road of UCV Analysis-Visormed surgical masks with clever material will likely be on sale in each grownup and baby sizes. These clever masks, manufactured following the UNE-EN European customary, will likely be on sale in coming days.

Analysis on the service of society that continues bearing fruit

These clever masks are a part of the alliance between each entities with the dedication to serve society in its combat in opposition to the pandemic. A dedication that turned a actuality final Might when the FFPCOVID MASK was launched and which is now full with the surgical masks, that are very inexpensive so that each one households can entry them.

A spokesperson for Visor Medical, which manufactured and can market them, says that the masks had been created due to the analysis carried out because the starting of the pandemic by the Laboratory of Biomaterials and Bioengineering of the UCV, of Ángel Serrano. The researchers of this laboratory, who belong to the CITSAM-UV, had been in a position to develop clever filters with inactivating capabilities, which these masks now use.

This new well being know-how represents “a step ahead” in safety in opposition to the pandemic, as the standard masks that many of the inhabitants makes use of “would not have antimicrobial properties, and solely stop the virus from reaching the respiratory tract”, says Serrano. “We needed to go additional and develop a masks that additionally had the power to destroy the virus as quickly because it comes into contact with the material. We additionally noticed that our filter was efficient in opposition to multi-resistant micro organism that can’t be destroyed with antibiotics and symbolize a menace, particularly for well being workers”.

Moreover, these masks have the benefit of defending in two instructions: defending wholesome individuals from changing into contaminated and preserving contaminated individuals from releasing as many lively viruses. Because it inactivates many of the microorganisms we expel when talking, it additionally has the good thing about being a know-how that results in considerably much less infectious waste from being produced.”
