The 5 Minute Solution
to Bio/Chemical Threats

About ColPro Research & Development, LLC

In response to the terrorist attacks in the United States on September 11, 2001, CEO Martin Gustafson was inspired to invent and develop a portable, freestanding, quickly and easily erectable shelter capable of protecting a family from a biochemical attack. He assembled the founding members of ColPro Research & Development, LLC, each an expert in their field, and set out to complete the task at hand utilizing his initial prototype.

The Company first began with research to create a chemical-biological air filtration system that could be used to create a pressurized “safe zone”. Successive to this, the Company initiated product design work on an innovative protective filtration system that could be used in a shelter structure to make it impervious to both biohazardous compounds and airborne toxins.

  • Following more than five years of intensive research, their high-tech air filtration system successfully completed testing at MET Laboratories, Inc. (San Francisco, CA), an OSHA Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory.
  • In February of 2009, a United States Utility Patent was awarded to ColPro Research & Development, LLC for their proprietary Chemical/Biological Shelter System.

Production of the Company’s technologically advanced alternative shelter, named The BioDome™, began in late 2010. The BioDome’s unique modular design incorporates both the sophisticated air filtration system and a revolutionary defensive fabric to create a “first-of-its-kind” lifesaving shelter.

  • MET Laboratories, Inc. has tested and rated The BioDome™ to exceed four times the OSHA standards.
  • In May of 2012, the shelter system was further tested and passed to MIL-SPEC standards at the U. S. Army’s West Desert Test Facility, Dugway Proving Ground in Utah.

Future Strategies

ColPro Research & Development, LLC invests substantially in innovation and technology. Utilizing NSR for our National Sales Division and Joe Gangi for our International Sales Division, we continue to increase our product line:

  • To meet the U. S. Military’s need for a lightweight, portable, all-inclusive chemical and biological-protective shelter, the Company has extended their product line to include larger, fast deployment modular BioDome™ shelters capable of triage, decontamination, command and housing for groups of people.
  • To meet the medical sector’s need for the quarantining of highly infectious epidemics (such as with the Ebola virus), the Company is working with hospitals to provide BioDome™ shelters capable of housing contagious patients within a sterile environment that can be contained outside of the hospital facility.
    • Additionally, ColPro Research & Development, LLC is working with Doctors Without Borders to provide air-dropped BioDomes in remote areas of need in order to help contain the spread of infectious airborne diseases within refugee camps.
  • To meet the needs of First Responders, The BioDome™ is now capable of aiding in the containment and treatment of HazMat situations. Additionally, because of its flame resistant material, The BioDome™ now gives firefighters the ability to treat victims in a smoke-free shelter close to the fire line.
  • In 2014, The BioDome™ was designated as the exclusive provider of biochemical shelters for use in training First Responders at the Guardian Centers (Disaster Preparedness and Tactical Training Validation Center) in Perry, GA.
