Since the outbreak of the epidemic in early 2020, the demand for medical supplies such as medical masks, medical oxygen ventilators and covid-19 reagents has increased sharply, and the public has never paid more attention to medical devices. At the event, a simple experiment with masks caught everyone's attention. The professionals cut the paper towels into scraps and approached the pile of paper scraps with a disposable medical mask. The masks, as if they had a magnetic force, adsorbed the scraps of paper. But when the same procedure was done with a different mask, the paper didn't stick.
Professionals demonstrate a simple test method for medical masks on the spot.
Fang Zhenwen, director of the passive testing room of Guangxi Medical device Testing Center, said the method can preliminarily judge whether a medical mask is qualified. The medical mask has a layer of molten spray cloth with electrostatic charge on it, which can filter through electrostatic adsorption. This is the main mechanism for the protective effect of the medical mask. If you want to know whether the masks you buy are qualified, you can make a preliminary judgment by yourself at home. If the surgical mask purchased does not adsorb, it is of poor quality or counterfeit.
From the adsorption of paper scraps, it can be judged whether the medical mask used for testing is qualified or not.
Drug administration personnel remind, if the purchase of unqualified medical devices, rights protection can be carried out from two perspectives, one from the perspective of consumer rights protection, the other from the perspective of damages. As to choose which kind of means, look whether be advantageous to safeguard one's rights and whether be convenient to undertake a choice.
