RRH Selects COE-ASM to Test and Validate Washable, Reusable Surgical Masks
The Center of Excellence in Advanced and Sustainable Manufacturing (COE-ASM) performed a last-minute test of reusable surgical masks for Rochester Regional Health(RRH). An eight-person team of engineers, graduate students, and manufacturing experts from GIS and RRH dedicated almost 300 hours to testing locally produced masks for liquid-barrier protection and flammability. They sought to validate whether reusable masks could safely and effectively be used.
Results showed that some masks met the standards set by the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA). These held up for multiple wash cycles while others did not, giving RRH the confidence to select several locally produced models for further evaluation and certified testing.
