DISCOLORED MASK / Daily necessities


DISCOLOR MASK is a color-changing mask that uses colloidal gold test to detect viral content. When the mask contains HRSV, Adenoviruses, Flu A or Flu B, the antigen is captured by the corresponding antibody that is fixed in the NC membrane detection area. With the role of Colloidal gold, it can make the mask partially turned to fuchsia, remind users to clean and replace masks then prevent the viruses from breeding in them. DISCOLORED MASK can be reused by replacing the internal test paper separately after cleaning and drying. Not only can avoid long-term unreplaceable masks affecting health, but also reduce the generation of garbage.
