The Premiership side showcased the system to the nation earlier today during ITV’s Good Morning Britain show.
Accies players will undergo a temperature check before moving on to the next line of security.
Brian Rice and his squad will then enter the decontamination chamber on their way out to the pitch and will be sprayed with a fine mist of acid.
The idea behind it is to give players and staff some more reassurance amid the Covid-19 crisis with any germs on individuals hair, clothes, skin etc all banished.
The chamber inflates in just ONE minute and it can be packed into a small case for easy transportation.
John McMenemy of Core Physio said: “I want to point out that this is a barrage of processes.
“It doesn’t take the place of mindful hand washing or distancing. It is an addition.”
He added: “The hard thing for us was how do we take this in a scalable and affordable way that would suit and keep the function and science behind it.
“It inflates in one minute and packs away in a small case that can be transported easy enough.”
Scottish football remains at a standstill due to the cornavirus pandemic.
But clubs will hope this measure will speed up a return to football at the top level.
Celtic were last week declared Premiership winners after the SPFL brought an end to the league campaign.
