INTRO: Since the Coronavirus took over the world, we have seen people make creative contact-free products to prevent the contraction of the disease. As we already know that the virus spreads by contact and can stay on almost every type of surface for quite a long time, it is important to sanitize places and things from time to time. So, to help sanitize things like masks, grocery items, and PPE kits easily, a Bengaluru-based startup has made a virus-killing CoronaOven.
CoronaOven kills Coronavirus in 10 Minutes
Log 9 Materials, a startup company in Bengaluru has created the new device “CoronaOven” that can sanitize and it can kill the deadly Coronavirus and other pathogens in less than 10 minutes time. This device can keep things clean and Coronavirus-free in your house, providing a lesser chance for you and your family to contract the deadly COVID-19.
UV-C light to kill the Human-killing Virus
Now, the “CoronaOven” uses the trusted UV-C light to kill the human-killing virus. UV-C is a type of ultraviolet light that is harmful to humans as well as viruses and dangerous micro-organisms. This is the technology that is used in “Phonesoap” to disinfect smartphones.
The nanotechnology startup claims that the product is designed specifically to kill the “Corona family of viruses” and it does just that in less than 10 minutes after placing the objects inside the “oven”.
Both Battery and Power Source Available
The device can work with a battery and you can also plug it into a power source to disinfect your groceries. You can also sanitize your masks and PPE kits to reuse them instead of throwing them away. This is why the company has applied for a patent for the “CoronaOven” for mass-production.
The company was able to build the device in a very short time span as recent times demand a quick response.
The “CoronaOven” is already listed on the Government E-Marketplace also known as the GEM. Also, Log 9 Materials is planning to bring the device in commercial markets in the recent future and has reached out to several government agencies and healthcare providers for the purpose of commercializing the “CoronaOven”.
