ASTM International is an international standards organization that sets the preferred international standard in healthcare for best practices inclusive of testing and requirements for performance of materials. Their mission is to promote public health and safety, the environment, and the overall quality of life, and contribute to the reliability of materials, products, systems and services.
The Difference between ASTM Level 1, 2 and 3 Masks:
ASTM Level 1 masks provide 95% bacterial and particulates filtration efficiency and are used for general use in medical practice for patient and staff isolation in short procedures and exams that don't involve aerosols, spray or fluids.
ASTM Level 2 masks provide moderate barrier protection with 98% bacterial and particulates filtration efficiency for low to moderate levels of aerosols, spray and/or fluids.
ASTM Level 3 masks provide maximum barrier protection with 98% bacterial and particulates filtration efficiency for heavy levels of aerosols, spray and/or fluids, and are used in surgery and in sterile environments to protect against high-risk fluid exposure.
Inno Lifecare is looking forward to being Canada's reliable local supplier of certified masks with a quality control system that adheres to best practices and all three ASTM levels of certification.
