N95 respirators with exhalation valves should not be used when sterile conditions are needed. According to the Food and Drug Administration, N95 respirators are labeled as only single-use and disposable devices. They are regulated by the National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory (NPPTL) in the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), which is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
