During the difficult months of the Covid-19 pandemic, FPS has developed an innovative new swab solution to ensure the absolute safety of operators and patients: the Swab Testing Station (STS).
Inspired by the Korean hospital of Yangji in Seoul, FPS has designed and constructed the first system to safely swab potentially infected patients by healthcare personnel located outside the station.
Tests only take a few minutes and are very safe because both the operator and the patient are never in direct contact. The cabins are easily transportable and, once positioned at strategic points (entrances of hospitals, pharmacies, neighborhoods, squares…), the STS will allow operators to perform 10 swabs in one hour.
The Swab Testing Station includes a completely safe removal system for the waste generated by the swabbing activities by means of a special container inside each cabin.
The STS is composed of 2 cabins and each is equipped with powerful ventilation that speeds up the aeration phase after sanitization to reduce the downtime between tests. The ventilation also allows the achievement of negative dynamic pressure inside each of the two cabins. Best in class filtration dramatically reduces the risk of potentially contaminated air escaping the station.
An intercom allows clear communication between the patient and the operator with the possibility to use pre-recorded audio with standard instructions (which can be done in different languages).
