FailSafe Air Safety Systems Corp Launches Portable Isolation Containment System for Bioterrorism Response and Infectious Disease Control


TONAWANDA, N.Y. -- FailSafe Air Safety Systems Corp

(FailSafe), a leading innovator of mobile airborne hazard control technology

and products, announced today the official expansion of its unique, patented

technology and product line that captures, contains and neutralizes

biohazards. Through its partnership with Design Shelter, Inc., FailSafe

offers an unmatched Portable Isolation Containment System (PIC System) that

uniquely combines patented medical isolation and air handling technology with

a high quality flexible shelter to meet the emergency surge capacity and

isolation requirements of government agencies and healthcare institutions.

Earlier this month, the commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Public

Health (DPH), Center for Emergency Preparedness selected the FailSafe PIC

System as part of its program to enable DPH to rapidly deploy portable

isolation units to healthcare facilities across the Commonwealth. FailSafe's

PIC System was selected over products from five competing vendors.

The PIC System, which is currently on display at the 14th World

Conference on Disaster Management in Toronto, Ontario, consists of an all

weather shelter plus an integrated filtration, heating and AC unit (PICS HVAC)

that allows for the isolation and care of multiple patients in a negative-

pressure environment with HEPA-filtered exhaust and controlled environmental

air. The FailSafe PIC System conforms to CDC precautionary guidelines for

isolation and AIA recommendations for Airborne Infectious Isolation (AII).

FailSafe CEO Paul Chirayath stated, "For several years, U.S. healthcare

institutions have utilized FailSafe's FDA cleared mobile systems to aid in

infection control. We are pleased to continue to provide the world's disaster

management and hospital preparedness communities with high-quality, turnkey

solution for surge capacity and portable isolation."

FailSafe Air Safety Systems Corp (FASS) is a leading innovator of mobile

airborne hazard control technology and products. The FailSafe technology

offers a highly efficient approach to destroying hazardous biological

particles, whether airborne or surface resident. FASS units meet all current

CDC, NIOSH and OSHA recommended response guidelines for airborne infection.

Founded in 1993, Design Shelter, Inc. has significant experience in

providing turnkey portable base camps to teams of professionals required to

work and live in the field for days, weeks or months at a time. This includes

field deployment of emergency management camps at prominent first responder

client sites, including police, fire, HAZMAT and mobile medical teams.
