Introducing FilterCell: The Next Big Company in the Personal Protective Equipment Market

‘Necessity is the mother of invention.’ This has never been so real and practical as it is now. COVID-19 has sparked potential innovations and inventions. FilterCell is one of the promised companies to jump on the bandwagon. Masks in the market have been criticized for prices, durability, and actual effectiveness. As the name implies, FilterCell gets us a step closer to having an appropriate mask for our personal protective purposes. 

Raw material for a potential COVID 19 mask

Arthur Zheng, Managing Director of FilterCell, is committed to help combat the COVID19 by introducing revolutionary filters. It is focusing on producing the most innovative high-quality filtration material based on Meltblown technology. 

Since the pandemic started, there has been an ongoing conversation on the best filters to use in your facemasks. Filter Cell is creating a new concept that is better than the other filters in the global market. The filtration level is 95% more efficient than the current filtration mechanisms available globally. With its high filtration rate, it does not affect the breathability; thus, it is wearable. 

With the current best filter material filtering up to 0.3 nanometres, our filter is filtering up to 0.1 nanometres – that is, the actual size of the virus. Filtercell also focuses on sustainable development practices. The filter is eco-friendly and cost-effective. The material is also water and oil resistant, flexible, and adaptable to harsh environments.  

The Scientific Evidence

Covering your face is crucial at this period, but it needs to be done well.  You can prevent the spread by using a material with a high filtration rate. Doctors and researchers have noticed how the filtration level of some homemade masks seems low. 

“The biggest challenge of choosing a homemade mask material is to find a fabric that is dense enough to capture viral particles, but breathable enough that we can wear it. Some items being sold online promise high filtration scores, but the material would be unwearable. You need something efficient for removing particles, but you also need to breathe,” said Dr. Wang, who won an international award for aerosol research last fall.

From what was a ‘research’ to a company, Filter Cell has proven to be an agent of change in the industry through blending technology in the filtration material. It is a potential contributor to watch out for the COVID-19 solution.
