As of now, Nano95 is focusing on wholesale orders directly from hospitals and government organizations, and health care providers and distributors to help address the PPE shortage.
Respirators in general
Per the CDC, an N95 respirator is a respiratory protective device designed to achieve a very close facial fit and very efficient filtration of airborne particles. NIOSH requires a respirator to pass the 0.3 micron sodium chloride test at 95% efficiency to be labeled an N95. The ”N” stands for ”not resistant to oil penetration”. OSHA requires that a respiratory protection program be developed for the proper use of respirators including written procedures, medical screening, training, and fit testing.
As explained by the CDC, a mask (both a surgical mask and a cloth mask) does not provide respiratory protection to the wearer because its intended use is to protect the wearer against fluids and protect others from the wearer’s respiratory emissions. Masks also do not undergo fit testing and are loose-fitting, which allows for leakage around the edges of the mask.
Respirators, such as N95 respirators, are subjected to rigorous NIOSH filter certification and are specifically designed to provide respiratory protection for the wearer by filtering out airborne contaminants. N95 respirators filter out at least 95% of airborne particles including large and small particles and are intended to be used by medical professionals performing clinical procedures.
Not yet. As of Sept 5, 2020, Nano95 respirators are not NIOSH approved N95s. But please note the following:
- All three Nano95 respirators have fully-proven test reports executed by an industry-leading 3rd-party lab to be approved for N95.
- WonderTree Care has been working with NIOSH for N95 approval over the last four months. We believe it is very close for Nano95 products to be approved for N95.
But again, as of Sep 5, 2020, Nano95 products do NOT have N95 approval. If either this website or any pre-sales efforts including our materials and pre-production samples provided any impression that our Nano95 products currently have N95 approval, that is incorrect. If you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. Thank you, we sincerely appreciate your patience.
No, Nano95 respirators are labeled as single use. The respirators are designed to be disposable and should be removed and discarded after exiting the patient’s room or care area and closing the door.
Nano95 products are not manufactured with natural rubber latex.
