New anti-Avian flu cloth

Shikibo Ltd. and the National Institute of Animal Health (NIAH)have jointly developed a fabric called “Flutect”.

This new fabric has been proven to block the spread of bird influenza by 99.9%, even after 50 washings, stopping the spread of the virus within 10 minutes of exposure.
Shikibo  and the NIAH say that Flutect will be available in 2007 in the form of uniforms for poultry house workers, masks, filters, down jackets, lab-coats and so forth.
