Demonstration of airborne pathogen containment

The Bioquell Pod has a negative airflow system that keeps potentially contaminated air from leaving the enclosure. In this short video, smoke has been used to visualise the process. From the results of the test it is clear that the filtering system in the Pod is effective when the doors are closed and also with a single door open. This is of course important in the prevention of cross-infection and is a key feature of the Pods design.

With the HEPA filter system in place the Pod has the capacity to house patients who are either infected or colonised with MRSA, C difficile, CPE, MERS-CoV or Ebola Virus Disease.
