Chandigarh, August 5

The technology for a “Portable Handheld Electrostatic Disinfection Device” developed by the Central Scientific Instruments Organisation (CSIO) here was today transferred to a Nagpur-based private firm for commercial production.

The technology works on two fronts. First, highly charged droplets of fluid kill the virus in the air, and secondly, the charged droplets reach the hidden areas of any target where the viruses may be present. The device is handheld and portable, which can be used by households, shopkeepers and small business set-ups.

“Keeping in mind the portability of the disinfection device and the demand by users, the CSIO has developed an advanced and portable electrostatic disinfection device to combat pathogenic infections, which is the most powerful tool and technique to disinfect and sanitise public places,” said Prof S Anantha Ramakrishna, Director, CSIO.

According to Dr Manoj K Patel, Principal Scientist, the project is an innovative concept of electrostatic spraying for disinfection and sanitisation of public places, especially hospitals, poultry, trains and buses, airports, airplanes, offices, classrooms and hotels. It contributes to healthy lifestyle and healthcare of the masses.” He also emphasised and urged the industry to collaborate with the CSIR-CSIO for the benefit of society and the nation.

Meanwhile, the CSIO today also signed a memorandum of understanding with the Central Pulp and Paper Research Institute for collaborative research in the domain of water and energy conservation and intelligent sensors and systems related to process and quality controls, waster treatment and monitoring of air emissions.
