WHO tested VENETOMED coveralls: Ukrainian products meet all quality standards

The WHO has recently initiated testing of protective clothing samples in its laboratories for private enterprises. The organization is concerned about the rapid spread of COVID-19 and is therefore submitting samples of protective clothing for additional tests in its certified laboratories. In one of them, in Spain, VENETOMED coveralls were tested. Our company has sent its products to a research and innovation center. Our COVID-19 protective medical clothing received class 6, the highest level of protection.

Samples of the clothing have passed many tests: steam, liquids, bacteria of different consistencies (solid and moisture) and even synthetic blood.
AITEX, a research institute in Spain and a partner of the WHO, has conducted research on the characteristics and certification of VENETOMED bacteriological protective clothing.
