Update: Abiogenix nasopharyngeal swabs readily available to the US medical industry and testing centers

HP has been working closely with leading researchers at Harvard University and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center to assist with gathering test data and refining 3D printed nasopharyngeal test swab designs, materials, and printing capacity. The Abiogenix spiral swab, 3D printed by FATHOM, using HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology, was one of four swab prototypes—selected after the review of more than 100 designs—that showed excellent concordance with the controls in the IRB-approved clinical trial. The swabs are now readily available to the US medical industry and testing centers. FATHOM is targeting to scale production of testing swabs from 100,000 to millions.

Wrist Cover

Wrist Cover

Currently, some hospital staff need to use two gloves in order to fully cover the part of their arms that could get exposed between the end of a lab coat sleeve and the end of a glove: One interior glove to close the end of the sleeve of the lab coat, and then a disposable glove on top of the interior glove. This sterilizable wrist cover device was designed based on feedback from hospital staff, who were looking for a way to cover the exposed skin on their arm, whilst minimizing the number of gloves that are used unnecessarily, as these are currently in short supply.

This device does not replace PPE. USE ALWAYS with gloves and medical gown. This is a supplementary device that should always be used on top of homologated PPE.

Approximately 84 sets of Wrist Covers can be produced in a full build with HP Jet Fusion 5200 and 4200 3D Printing Solutions.

Ventilator Components+1 design

Field Respirator

Field respirator

First industrialized field 3D printed emergency respiration device to support hospitals and ICUs. A mechanical bag valve mask (BVM) that can be used for short term emergency ventilation of COVID-19 patients. 3D printing allows this health system to be made available quickly during the shortage of medical equipment. With HP Multi Jet Fusion technology and existing capabilities in the alliance, both in design and in prototyping, the functionality of this first model of the largely 3D printed emergency respiration device has been developed and tested. Industrially scalable – expectation is that the production capacity of between 50 and 100 units per day can be reached.

Design created by Leitat senior engineer Mr. Magí Galindo, and medically validated by Dr. Lluís Blanch, Director of Innovation at the Hospital Parc Taulí in Sabadell, an expert in mechanical ventilation.

Please stay tuned as more designs are made available.
