FPS develops safety box for swabbing

The cabins are easily transportable and, once positioned in strategic points, will allow doctors to perform between 12 and 15 swabs in one hour

FPS has announced the development of a new innovating solution for swabbing, that will ensure the absolute safety of operators and patients.

Inspired by the Korean hospital of Yangji in Seoul, FPS has designed the first prototype of Safety Box to perform the swab for COVID-19 on a high number of people in a few minutes and in total safety, both for the operator and the patient.

The cabins are easily transportable and, once positioned in strategic points, will allow doctors to perform between 12 and 15 swabs in one hour.

Given its experience in the containment sector, FPS has chosen to concentrate all its efforts on the realisation of these "swab isolators" in a short time, maintaining the high standards of safety and quality. These systems will consist of two cabins and will be equipped with a negative pressure ventilation system.

Carlo Corsini, the owner, says: "I'm proud of our team for working together and putting their technical skills at the service of public health on such short notice, working with enthusiasm despite the difficult period we're all going through."

The project was presented to the Ausl in Piacenza, in the hope that it can be used to contain the spread of the virus.
