A new technology that can be used to make medical equipment more efficient could also reduce the spread of the virus.
The technology is called a “disinfection matrix,” which is essentially a grid of tiny, self-contained pockets that can contain hundreds of thousands of disinfectant tablets.
These pockets are sealed with protective film and a self-cleaning material to protect them from contamination.
These disinfection matrix devices are used in hospitals, clinics, and emergency departments, and are available to the public for as little as $15 per unit.
“The device works by removing the film that protects the disinfection tablets from contamination,” said the team behind the technology, and that is why it has already been used in a number of countries to remove and disinfect contaminated medical equipment.
“The device is a very low-cost, high-efficiency, and low-maintenance alternative to disinfection devices, making it the perfect solution for countries that need to rapidly implement a low-tech strategy in the fight against the pandemic.”
The Disinfection Matrix is designed to remove as much COVID as possible from the surface of medical equipment, and it can do so by removing all of the disinfectant, leaving only a small fraction of the protective film to act as a protective layer.
“It’s like an anti-virus that can clean out the dirty spot, but it’s also a very efficient way of cleaning out the rest of the medical equipment,” said Andrew J. Clements, the head of security and network security for CIM Group, which developed the Disinfecting Matrix technology.
“It removes COVID, and the next step is to use that clean spot to disinfect the next batch of equipment.”
The technology could be useful in areas like healthcare, as well as other industrial, commercial, and military applications, as the Disulfide is currently being developed in Russia.
According to the team, it can perform its task by separating COVID and disinfection chemicals from the disinfecting material in the matrix, allowing the disinfectants to be easily and quickly removed and reused.
“There is no need to waste time removing the disinfected material because the disinfecters are now embedded in the disinfectION matrix,” Clements said.
The Disulfidation Matrix can be easily repurposeable, since it is not only used for disinfection, but can also be used for other industrial purposes.
In a similar way to other disinfection techniques, such as the Reactor Disinfectant Treatment, the Disaccting Matrix could be used in industrial, manufacturing, or medical applications to treat COVID.
“In general, you don’t need to reuse the disinfectEDT to treat medical equipment because it is made from a self cleanable material,” Cements said.
“You can reuse it in the factory, and you can reuse the industrial process, but you need to get it out of the industrial facility as quickly as possible.”
