“The device started to be actively used in our hospitals in order to support our healthcare workers struggling with the pandemic at the expense of their lives,” he added.

As BIO2Flow can operate and be transported independently from intensive care units, companies aim to provide great support to healthcare professionals, said the statement.

Earlier in the pandemic, Arcelik and Biosys collaborated on the mass production of mechanical ventilators with the help of fellow Turkish firms Arcelik, Aselsan, and Baykar, under the leadership of the Turkish government, through the Health Ministry and Industry and Technology Ministry.
