Fosshield® is the antimicrobial agent in the FDA cleared and NIOSH approved SpectraShield™ 9500 N95 surgical respirator mask. Fosshield® was a critical element in achieving this unique FDA cleared medical device.
Fosshield® is a safe and effective antimicrobial solution for many healthcare applications, including scrubs, privacy curtains, linens, and medical devices.
Fosshield® is used in the FDA cleared SpectraShield™ 9500 N95 surgical respirator mask. FOSSHIELD® was found to be safe when used in the breathing zone (offgassing) and against the skin (non-transdermal). It is a non-chemical, non-leaching technology whose incorporation in the SpectraShield™ surgical respirator mask was a critical element in achieving this unique FDA cleared medical device. Studies have shown that the respirator surfaces treated with Fosshield® antimicrobial can reduce the amount of certain odor-causing bacteria by 99.99% after just one hour of contact with the treated surfaces.
