NCA could exhibit a Baldachin at the sitem-insel open day

Baldachin prevents transmission of viruses at the hospital bedside


04. Dezember 2023 

Around a thousand visitors experienced first-hand how medical research and innovative ideas are implemented in everyday clinical practice. sitem-insel, the Swiss Institute for Translational Medicine and Entrepreneurship, opened its doors to the general public on 02.12.2023. For the second time since its opening in 2019, sitem-insel provided a glimpse behind doors that are normally only open to researchers. At over 30 interactive stations, the units at sitem-insel provided a unique insight into the world of cutting-edge research. 

Visitors had the unique opportunity to view the world's first prototype against the transmission of respiratory viruses in multi-bed hospital rooms, the "canopy" from the company Nano Clean Air.

Highly effective protection against infection at the hospital bedside:
– Measurements with salt aerosols, viruses and bacteria show:

  •    * More than 95% of airborne pathogens do not reach the neighboring bed
  •    * More than 90% of pathogens do not even reach the edge of the bed
  • – High level of protection for nursing staff
    – Development and study together with Insel-Spital / Bern
