The FDA has been working hard these past months due to the COVID 19 outbreak. Many companies have also been working hard in coming up with new devices and texting kits, in fact, anything that can help in this trying times, and the FDA has to approve them before they can go out fo mass use

One that has just been given the green light is a decontamination system that can sterilize millions of N95 masks every day.

The FDA says more than 6,000 hospitals already have the systems and they have been getting the OK to use them.

These systems have been designed to clean about 4 million masks a day, putting a little less demand in the pipeline for these masks Which were very difficult to have at first, although they still are in some places. Enabling them to be reused

This decontamination process would enable the re-use of N95 masks originally designed for single use.

The process uses vaporized hydrogen peroxide gas to clean the respirators. ASP’s STERRAD series sterilization machines, which are covered under the EUA, are in use in around 6,300 hospitals already. This process has been used before, commonly for sterilizing other pieces of clinical equipment, but has not previously been intended for use with N95 masks. and there are around 9,930 in operation across the U.S.,

The FDA has previously cleared another similar system for N95 decontamination: Battelle’s vaporized hydrogen peroxide process.
