The External Surfaces of Medical

Masks & N95 Respirators in use are a Major Reservoir of Bacteria and Viruses

MIRABEL, QUEBEC, CANADA, April 28, 2022 i3 Biomedical inc., a medical device corporation, releases today the comparative results of the contamination of the external material of Mask & Respirators (Ex: N95, KN95) after being worn for 30 minutes.


International Scientific and Governmental authorities recommend the use of masks preferably Medical Grade (ASTM 3, IIR) or Respirators (N95, KN95). As evidenced in the

accompanying scientific photo, general respiratory protective masks accumulate large quantities of microbes on their external surfaces within minutes after putting them on.

Preventing the next pandemic: U of T’s EPIC consortium

The University of Toronto’s Combined Containment Level 3 (C-CL3) unit, equipped to safely study pathogens that cause infectious disease, was among the first labs in Canada to enable researchers to work with SaRS-CoV-2 samples. The C-CL3 lab also partners with companies who are eager to tap its range of expertise and vast network.

For example, Gray-Owen and the C-CL3 team recently worked with I3 BioMedical Inc. to help them test the efficacy of their TrioMed Active Mask’s antimicrobial coating in the C-CL3 facility. The coating prevents the COVID-19 virus from contaminating the outer surface of the medical mask.

Masks & N95 Respirators in use are a Major Reservoir of Bacteria and Viruses

MIRABEL, QUEBEC, CANADA, April 28, 2022 i3 Biomedical inc., a medical device corporation, releases today the comparative results of the contamination of the external material of Mask & Respirators (Ex: N95, KN95) after being worn for 30 minutes.


“Why would you wear a mask or respirator knowing they are contaminated with Bacteria and Viruses within minutes? It's scientifically proven, if you want a clean mask wear TrioMed.” said Pierre Jean Messier, Executive Chairman.

Antiviral Canadian Medical Products deactivate 99.9%+ of COVID-19 in 5 minutes: University of Toronto Testing Lab

MIRABEL, Quebec, Oct. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — i3 BioMedical Inc.(www.i3biomedical.com) achieves the fastest and most efficient “killing speed” of SARS-CoV-2. TrioMed sets the unequalled standard of superiority in Active protection worldwide.

The Virucidal technology developed by i3 BioMedical Inc. was confirmed todeactivate more than 99.9% of SARS-CoV-2 – the virus that causes COVID-19 – on the outer surface of the TrioMed Active Medical products (including mask) in 5 minutes after 8 hours of simulated usage, according to independent virology tests conducted at the University of Toronto.

Canadian Laboratory demonstrates that TrioMed Mask filters more Live Viruses than any other mask by at Least 500%

TrioMed Active Masks Proven to Filter Live Viruses between 500%-3600 % better than N95, FFP2 and Procedure masks


MIRABEL, QUEBEC, CANADA, April 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — i3 Biomedical inc., the Canadian manufacturer of TrioMed Active Surgical Masks today announces that scientific testing executed by the ISO certified laboratory, GAP EnviroMicroBial Services Ltd. demonstrated that the filtration of live virus by the TrioMed Active Mask was superior by 500% – 3600 % when compared to Respirators and Procedure Masks currently available in North America and Europe.

U of T tests show Canadian mask deactivates 99% of SARS-CoV-2

Professor Scott Gray-Owen says I3 BioMedical’s proprietary TrioMed Active coating material had previously been demonstrated to kill most microbes on contact, and was shown to remain directly coupled to the outside surfaces of masks rather than leach out into the environment or onto the skin of wearers.

“They had done this before with other bacterial and viral pathogens including influenza, and we extended these studies for them to show that SARS-CoV-2 was also susceptible,” Gray-Owen said.

U of T lab finds coating on mask 'deactivates' 99% of SARS-CoV-2

Professor Scott Gray-Owen at the university’s department of molecular genetics at the Faculty of Medicine said the coated mask can protect the mask-wearer in several ways — if the mask-wear is infected with the CoV-2 virus and sneezes, those droplets would get caught in the coating and deactivated on their way out, so they don’t infect others around them.

“But also, if someone was beside me and they were infected and they talked to me and it got on the outside of my mask, or if my hands were contaminated and I touch my mask, then it should deactivate that. It should in theory, have a protective effect.”

Protective Masks – Mask with Active Ingredient

A medical protective mask from Canada offers protection against viruses (and bacteria) of all kinds: Triomed Iodine Technology is the name of the only mask with an active ingredient. Iodine, one of the oldest disinfectants, is integrated into the mask structure – is completely odorless, skin-friendly and hypoallergenic.

This not only protects the others, but also the mask wearer. According to the manufacturer and university report (from Toronto University in Canada and one of the leading US American test laboratories, Nelson Labs in Salt Lake City in the US state of Utah), every virus and bacterium that hits the mask is "destroyed" within a few minutes.
