From Technology to Product - SpectraShield(TM) 9900 Respirator Mask
One of the most high profile product applications of the Fosshield(R) technology is Nexera Medical's SpectraShield(TM) 9900 Antibacterial Respirator Mask which recently received a Medical Device Establishment License by Health Canada for distribution in Canada. The SpectraShield(TM) 9900 is believed to be the only face mask today that is approved to provide 'dual-action', broad-spectrum protection, which may be critical in the event of a major public health crisis. Nexera Medical, Inc. has filed for regulatory approval with the FDA and NIOSH in the United States, and is seeking approval in the European Union, Australia and Japan.
About Fosshield(R) Antimicrobial Technology
Fosshield(R), employing Agion(R) Technology, is the only patented silver-copper based fiber technology that safely, naturally, and continuously inhibits the growth of destructive and odor-causing bacteria, mold, mildew, and viruses. Unlike other antimicrobials that are applied only via topical coatings, the additive in Fosshield(R) is embedded into the fiber during manufacturing process, providing the most effective exposure to contaminants. This antimicrobial fiber technology is safe for prolonged contact with humans, environmentally safe, and does not contribute to the growing concern of antibiotic resistance. Soon Fosshield(R) will be available in many fabric uses, including face masks, linens, clothing, carpeting, wallcoverings, and car interiors to increase product life and reduce microbial growth.
