Biocompatibility of face masks
The biocompatibility of face masks must be analyzed if the materials of the face masks have not been previously tested for cytotoxicity and dermal irritation, and accepted to be used in the application. The testing is necessary for new materials which have not been used in face masks before.
This test will determine whether face masks are biocompatible according to EN 14683.
