Since the beginning of the COVID-19 viral outbreak, Amsino has actively joined in the fight against the coronavirus outbreak. Upholding its strong sense of social responsibilities and professionalism, Amsino has donated 1 million RMB in medical products directly to many hospitals in Wuhan, Hubei Province, Shanghai, and Jiangsu areas.

A COVID -19 Task Force led by Dr. Richard Ya Lee, Chairman and CEO of Amsino Medical Group was established on January 28. Under the principle of employee safety first, all 4 Amsino facilities in China have gradually resumed work, focusing on production of urgently needed infection control medical products helping the fight of Coronavirus in the front line. Amsino Medical (Shanghai) Co. Ltd. resumed production on February 8th. Amsino Healthcare (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. and Shanghai Regent Medical Technology Co., Ltd. resumed work on February 10th and Amsino Medical (Kunshan) Co. Ltd. resumed production on February 15th. In addition to medical product donations, Amsino Medical (Kunshan) Co. Ltd. has been providing free laboratory testing services since late January for supplies used in fighting and prevention of the virus. 

Amsino facilities in the US have also actively involved in the fund-raising and donation programs to help China's fight against the virus. In addition to cash donations by the senior management team, the global procurement department of Amsino International based in California and Amsino Healthcare based in Chicago have been actively purchasing from various sources critically required surgical masks, face masks, face shields, protective gowns and other products urgently needed in China. They have surmounted the challenges faced in procurement, transportation to China, customs clearance, and delivery restrictions within China, striving to the best of their ability to deliver to the front line in fighting against the virus. 

At the front line, with the opening of the respiratory tract of any infected patient, there is a real threat of infection to the medical personnel at the hospital ward level. With regard to such challenges, Amsino’s medical product donation focused on its closed mucus suction system including Amsino Receptal ® and Saf-Gard™ closed suction catheters, tubing, and liners. Amsino Safgard™ system has a built-in, prefilled TCCA germicide vial that delivers a high concentration of chlorine disinfectant that can effectively inactivate viruses including: SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV, 2019-nCoV in patients respiratory track (Source: Coronavirus Infected Pneumonia Diagnosis and Treatment Plan (Trial Version 5)). In addition, Vac-Gard® shut-off valve in the system also prevents backflow of aerosols and fluids into the vacuum system further reducing the risk of contamination exposure to improve patients and caregivers’ safety and protecting hospital environment. Concurrently, Amsino has donated its enteral feeding pumps and nutrition delivery products to help enhance and boost patient’s immune system.
