Pakistan unveils locally designed and built ventilator

National University of Technology (NUTECH) has handed over a locally designed and built ventilator to the National Radio and Telecommunication Center (NRTC).

According to the Federal Minister of Science and Technology, Chaudhry Fawad Hussain, NRTC will soon initiate the mass production of the NUTECH ventilator. ------------------------------

NUTECH scientists and engineers have also started work on an indigenously developed 3D printer and portable x-ray machine under the COVID-19 initiative launched by the Science and Tech Ministry.

Pakistan has achieved major milestones in the fight against Coronavirus.

Recently, the Drug Regulatory Authority of Pakistan (DRAP) approved a ventilator designed locally by Alsons, a Karachi-based group specializing in the manufacturing of mechanical components.

In July, NRTC had started the commercial manufacturing of Pakistan’s first locally built ventilator named “SafeVent SP100.”
