N95 and P100 TIL Testing FY09
Conduct a TIL comparison of filtering facepieces and elastomeric N95 and P100 masks on human test subjects to evaluate the relative protection achieved by each class of respirators on the same panel of users.
42 CFR 84.40-43, Subpart E – Quality Control
Evaluate 20 filtering facepiece respirators and 2 elastomeric HM & FF with N95 and P100 filters to determine feasibility of conducting a full blown study.
3Q FY08 - Finalize test protocol
1Q FY09 - Test
3Q FY09 - Publish results
Internal data on the relative efficiency of N95 and P100 filtering facepieces and same classification of filters on elastomeric respirators
Peer reviewed publication on N95 and P100 relative efficiencies of filtering facepieces and elastomeric facepieces
