ECRI tested 34 disposable isolation gown models made by foreign or non-traditional suppliers and found that about half did not meet the minimum U.S. standard for liquid barrier protection, the organization said in a report released today.

The report recommends having samples tested by an independent lab before purchasing isolation gowns from outside the U.S. or non-traditional manufacturers.
