MRS® Introduces Contaminated Remains Quarantine Pod

Mortuary Response Solutions® Introduces Contaminated Remains Quarantine Pod

BELTON, S.C. – October 10, 2014 –

Mortuary Response Solutions®, a division of Worldwide Disaster Response Group, announced today that they have expanded their mass fatality response offerings to include a  new Contaminated Remains Quarantine Pod that has been specifically designed to meet and exceed the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) guidelines for the storage of human remains that have died from the Ebola Virus.

The Contaminated Remains Quarantine Pod was designed and tested to be leak proof and air tight in order to contain 100% of all fluids in an hermetically sealed pod that can be opened and closed while maintaining the airtight and liquid tight requirements. The pod was designed to meet the
needs for the storage of a larger number of decedents that need to be quarantined in order to control the cross contamination of the Ebola virus as well as adding dignity to the proper storage of
a human remain. Safely and efficiently transporting and storing human remains is something that Mortuary Response Solutions® has long upheld as a priority when designing products.

“The current method of storage in countries where Ebola is a widespread threat is not safe or sufficient. The remains are simply being wrapped in plastic and then placed on the ground in makeshift shelters,” stated Michael Richardson, President and CEO. “Practices like these lead to further contamination and spread of the Ebola virus. Remains of Ebola patients are highly contagious. Getting the Contaminated Remains Quarantine Pod on the ground in Africa could help significantly in fighting the war against Ebola.”

The Contaminated Remains Quarantine Pod consists of three components: the outer pod, the cadaver racking systems, and the cadaver storage trays. Once the system is received in the field the lower half of the pod is placed on a surface that is clear of any sharps objects and then the cadaver racking system is installed into the lower half of the pod. Remains are then placed into the racking system in the cadaver storage trays and the top half of the pod is placed over the rack system and then the two halves are sealed using the airtight zipper. At any time the pod can be opened and remains can be removed or added as needed. No special tools or training is required to use the Contaminated Remains Quarantine Pod.

Mortuary Response Solutions also has designed smaller pod systems that will fit into the rear of vehicles as well as low cost, hermetically sealed body bags so that remains can be temporarily stored and transported while helping with minimizing the spread of the virus.
