Protective Gown Testing

A protective gown is indispensable for health care professionals to protect themselves from high-risk exposure. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, high-quality protective gear is in great demand globally as a means to help save lives from cross-contamination of the highly infectious disease.

Hospitals and health care facilities throughout the world are experiencing a shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE), including masks and gowns.

Manufacturers and retailers are shifting their production lines and joining the effort to produce life-saving products around the world.
