FDA authorises Mechanical Ventilator Milano under EUA

By Chloe Kent

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA) to the Mechanical Ventilator Milano (MVM), a ventilator developed by the Global Argon Dark Matter Collaboration (GADM) for Covid-19 patients.

GADM is an international scientific collaboration engaged in the search of dark matter. Their research involves gas handling systems and complex control systems, the same technologies required in mechanical ventilators.

Efforts from numerous GADM institutions allowed the MVM to go from conception to reality in just over a month, with development completed between 19 March and 1 May. It is now shifting to production to support patients.

Manufacturing services firm Vexos will manufacture and distribute the MVM under an exclusive license from Elemaster for the Americas and other territories.
