Manufacturing Medical Supply Registry

Manufacturers can now register with the State of California indicating an interest in producing medical supplies. The website has an easy to complete form enabling businesses to indicate their capabilities to help during the pandemic. To address COVID-19, the state has identified the most critical medical and emergency equipment. NOTE: Individuals should go to their local contacts rather than use this website for companies.

Go to: State of California COVID-19 Medical Supply Contributions.

Manufacturing can register their capabilities regarding the following items:

Ventilators Face Shields (Disposable) Goggles N95 Respirators (Disposable) Coveralls (Hospitals and EMS) Examination Gloves Surgical Masks
Surgical or Exam Gowns
Hand Sanitizer Wipes
Swabs Test Kits Viral Testing Media

How to Make Masks to Help Your Community

Makers & Manufacturers are Collaborating to Produce Masks and Shields for Care Providers – OpShieldsUp & Cabrillo College

OpShieldsUp is working with with Masks for Docs and Sierra Sacramento Valley Medical Society. Makers and manufacturers have formed Operation Shields Up to produce Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) for front-line care providers, in response to the pandemic. The group is based in Hacker Lab powered by Sierra College makerspace in Rocklin. The PPE shields are 100% donation based and not for sale.

How to help – OpShieldsUp is looking for:

  • Those who can 3D print parts to support the effort
  • Financial donations to support the effort
  • Donations of supplies and materials
  • Experts in sourcing materials, administration and manufacturing
  • Donations of food for the volunteers
  • Volunteers to make, sanitize, assemble and pack PPEs in Rocklin

Makerspace at Cabrillo College Producing Masks

In the college makerspace, Payson McNett, Cabrillo College Art Studio instructor and director of Digital Fabrication, is producing masks to protect those on the front lines of the pandemic. The 3-D printed mask has a snap-in section for medical grade filtration materials that can be changed out as needed. The designs for these PPE masks are posted on the Billings Clinic Foundation website. For prototypes or help with designs, please contact Payson McNett at Cabrillo College.

Can Your 3D Printers Support Coronavirus Efforts?

MatterHackers has made a call out to those with 3D printers to support the national Coronavirus response

Learn More at the MatterHackers Covid19 Additive Manufacturing Response – USA

MatterHackers is developing a registry of those with 3D printers who can be part of the national effort fighting coronavirus, according to Mara Hitner, director, Business Development.

“MatterHackers is vetting designs with medical professionals, and once we settle on one that will be useful, we will be coordinating logistics of materials and shipping to help the growing army of volunteers put their 3D printers to good use,” wrote Hitner. “If you’re interested in using your printers to help, or if you have contacts who need help, please do register so that I can match you with opportunities.”
