Description of Presentation:

CIIRC CTU is entering the fight against COVID-19. At the RICAIP Centre of Excellence supported by EU resources, CIIRC CTU is developing a brand new prototype of safety half-mask under the name “CIIRC RP95”.

The goal is to make a prototype that can be produced anywhere in the world on the principles of distributed production. Distributed production allows to compensate the local lack of production capacities or resources.

CIIRC CTU researchers developed and certified the prototype of the advanced respirator “CIIRC RP95-3D” in just one week.

The CIIRC RP95-3D is a personal protective equipment – half-mask – with a P3 replacegeable external filter which has been certified as a kit according to EN 140:1999 norm. It meets the same or higher degree of protection as a FFP3 class respirator.

The mask can be reused thanks to proven sterilization and disinfection procedures. Sterilization of the half-mask is possible in a steam sterilizer (autoclave). The integrity of the mask after sterilization (in the National Reference Laboratory of the EAA) was successfully confirmed by subsequent testing at the Occupational Safety Research Institute.

Disinfection of the mask is possible by spraying with an alcohol-based disinfectant solution (85% ethanol). This procedure was verified in cooperation with the team of the Czech Society of Cardiology and their colleagues virologists. Please find more info under:

CIIRC is also a visible actor in the AI domain –  CIIRC’s is involved in European AI research after successful evaluation of ICT48 calls.
