VANCOUVER — Beyond Medical Technologies Inc. through its subsidiary Micron Technologies Inc, provides an update on its mask production efforts.

THREE PLY MEDICAL GRADE FACE MASKS:
Micron Technologies, the company’s wholly owned subsidiary has been manufacturing and selling medically certified three ply face masks in the colour blue and also in black since August 2020. The company is selling out all the inventory that it can manufacture on three shifts a day and is looking to bring in additional manufacturing equipment and personnel.

N95 MASKS
There is an ongoing shortage of N95 medical grade masks for frontline first responders across North America.
Ranvir Gujral stated on NPR radio “But fewer companies shifted to making N95 masks, which are far more complicated, and they’re in short supply. Nurses and doctors are re-using masks over and over again. Some small medical practices can’t even find supplies they can afford”

The Company’s N95 Model 8800 respirators are currently CSA and FDA approved and undergoing testing and awaiting medical-grade certification from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). N95 masks are the gold standard of personal protective equipment, particularly among healthcare professionals. They provide the highest level of protection for the user and those in close proximity to infected patients. N95 masks are both high in demand and low in supply worldwide. It is the intent of the Company to have its N95 respirators CSA, FDA and NIOSH certified and sold to medical professionals and citizens to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
