Surgical mask in development with Acteev technology
Acteev technology has been shown in laboratory tests to deactivate SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes Covid-19, and other pathogens. The testing was conducted following the protocols of ISO, ASTM or other international standards organizations.
Ascend submitted its first 510(k) to the FDA last month. That submittal requests clearance to market a Level I surgical mask that is effective against SARS-CoV-2. Also last month, Ascend launched Acteev Protect, an antimicrobial line of protection specially formulated to guard against the growth of fungi, bacteria and other microbes to keep textiles and nonwovens fresher for longer. Acteev Protect, available for sale in the USA and select other jurisdictions, can beused to make face coverings, filtration devices, and textiles for upholstery and apparel such as activewear.
