RZ Testing Facility Expands
Nelson Laboratories is a crucial element to the RZ Mask. Our filters have been tested at Nelson’s state-of-the-art facilities allowing us to stand behind our claim of 99.9% filtration down to 0.1 microns.

They solve complex problems, providing precise test results, and delivering value through superior testing solutions and service to ensure the safety and efficacy of every product.
Recently, Nelson made a big announcement; they were acquired by Sterigenics International. Sterigenics is the leading global provider of contract sterilization, gamma technologies and medical isotopes, and a portfolio company of Warburg Pincus and GTCR. Operating out of 48 facilities in 13 countries across the Americas, Europe and Asia, this acquisition creates the largest fully integrated global sterilization and lab
“This is a significant strategic acquisition to help build out Sterigenics’ lab testing and service capabilities on a global scale, enabling us to better serve our multinational customers,” said Michael Mulhern, CEO of Sterigenics International. “We will continue to explore additional expansion opportunities for our lab services to meet our customers’ growing needs.”
Jeffery Nelson, President of Nelson Labs announced, “Sterigenics will be a great partner, and will provide the global access and ongoing investment necessary to ensure long-term growth of the lab services business,” said. “They are a global leader in contract sterilization and sterility assurance serving the same markets as Nelson Labs. This is an excellent cultural fit, and I’m excited for the opportunities this will bring for our teams and our customers throughout the world.”
