VBOX M walking through booths for COVID-19 testing
Booths for COVID-19 infection testing are nationwide used for additional protection of medical staff and laboratory workers in many countries, where they use pharmaceutical gloves so patients and medical workers are physically isolated.
VBOX M booths were developed and manufactured in Russia by Vilitek, but they are result of international cooperation: gloves are made in France, high-efficiency HEPA filter is made in the USA, protective transparent panels are made in Austria, and aluminum profile is made in Russia.
Piercan gloves are used in VBOX M walking through booth as well as in isolators and Restricted Access Barrier Systems (RABS) made by us and other manufacturers of pharmaceutical equipment. These gloves are certified in accordance with EN ISO 374-5 to protect from viruses.
Transparent panels are made of impact-resistant material with high optical properties.
Two versions of walking through booths for coronavirus testing are produced: VBOX M 2000 with HEPA filter to work with slight positive pressure for additional protection and VBOX M 2000 Eco to protect a health care worker from all sides with free entry. Both versions may be supplied with completely transparent walls or walls transparent on booth top around the perimeter.
VBOX M booth design is optimized and there are no needless elements. This ensures easy deployment, disinfection, repair, and maintenance with limited resources. The design provides for the possibility of hermetically installing third-party HEPA filters, even differing in size, this increases the flexibility in booth maintenance, wherever it is.
The regular use of VBOX M walking through booths assumes the medical staff to be inside the booth and the patient — outside. However, it is possible to use the booth for taking tests when the patient is inside. For that to happen, VBOX M 2000 Eco booth may be used without any modifications; as for the VBOX M 2000, minimal modifications are required by the operating organization; in this mode, the booth is operated under low negative pressure for additional protection of personnel outside the booth.
Disinfection is carried out with alcohol solutions or other agents that are not aggressive against booth parts.
