Protect you against swine flu with BioMask

The pandemic of swine flu has made the whole world worried, even though the cases of swine flu re more or less limited. Al the preventive measures are taken all over the world in order to prevent more people from catching it. One such precautionary measure just has been introduced in Hong Kong in form of BioMask that has developed by Filigent.

The running ordinary mask fit poorly with lots of leakage from the sides & become easily contaminated with live germs. But the BioMask is easily to put on & futs securely & kills germs continuously. Moreover, this mask is apparently also quite versatile, since it fits five-year-olds and above, making it an indispensable accessory for students & kids.

The BioMask is apparently based on an intelligent filtration technology & is fabricated from a scientifically designed & tested multilayer material. It has in its internal structure a unique active layer, featuring highly targeted anti-microbial properties. This active layer aggressively detects traps & then rapidly kills pathogens, within minutes of contact.

This patented BioFriend textile layer captures pathogens by mimicking the sites on human cells to which they normally attach & then quickly destroys them by disrupting their surfaces (viruses) & cell walls (bacteria). Many viruses, including influenza viruses, are known to bind to a terminal sialic acid residue on the surface of the human cell membrane. The binding agent in the BioFriend textile mimics the binding action of sialic acid on influenza viruses.

Typical face masks do not kill airborne pathogens. They are based on a passive mechanical filtration design only. Thus, microbes on or inside the mask can stay alive for many hours, greatly increasing the likelihood of cross-contamination. When compared to the tight-fitting N95 face mask, the BioMask is far superior in terms of efficacy, comfort and breath ability.

Filigent CEO Melissa Mowbray-d'Arbela considers the BioMask to be the first intelligent face mask. You don't have to be a health care worker or medical professional to use it correctly. Instead, the mask is very easy to put on, wear & dispose of properly. Thus, it's one of the best forms of protection for ordinary people and their children during this year's swine flu crisis.
