Battelle's critical care contamination system comes to NYC

A machine that can decontaminate up to 80,000 respirator masks per day is coming to the Boston area, in what could represent a game-changer for Massachusetts hospitals battling the novel coronavirus that has killed thousands nationwide.

Partners HealthCare, Battelle and the City of Somerville announced a partnership that will offer hospitals, first responders and medical professionals the new, regional resource as they battle COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, amid a widespread shortage of personal protective equipment.

“This is a critically important step forward in our efforts to protect health care workers on the front lines,” said Dr. Paul Biddinger, Medical Director for Emergency Preparedness at Partners HealthCare. “By sterilizing 80,000 masks per day, this region will have a greatly improved supply of N95 respirator masks, keeping our workforce safe, ultimately improving access to care for patients in need during this pandemic.”

TVNL Comment: This equipment is being deployed in New York City as well.
