Biology Professor Alex Wong, from the Experimental Molecular Evaluation lab, is working on a unique research initiative to decontaminate medical face masks. Professor Wong, combines ultraviolet light technology on masks that have been exposed to COVID-19.
Professor Wong, came up with this idea when there was a substantial concern over Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in the country.
““Arkalumen was interested in developing ultraviolet LED for decontaminations and CHEO was interested in doing UV decontamination of masks . . . It sort of clicked together,” says Wong.
