A research team of CT Group of Institutions, Maqsudan, has developed an ultraviolet-C based disinfection oven called ‘CoronaWave’, which can deactivate DNA bacteria, virus and other pathogens, thus destroying their ability to multiply and cause disease.

The achievement is made under the guidance of Dr Anurag Sharma, professor (ECE) and principal, CT Institute of Technology and Research, along with Anshu Sharma, HoD (CSE), and Navdeep Singh, Assistant Professor (ECE), CTITR. Speaking about the new gadget, Dr Anurag said, “The oven can be used to sanitise wallet, mobile phones, fruits, vegetables, kitchen utensils, slippers, clothes and other daily-use items. It kills 99.9 per cent bacteria by exposing UVC light for 10 minutes. It is a low-cost product and is easily available for the common man.”

Dr Jasdeep Kaur Dhami, Director, CT Group, North Campus (Maqsudan), appreciated the efforts of the team members and encouraged them to perform more research-based activities in future also.

Manbir Singh, Managing Director, CT Group, applauded the team for developing the oven that could be used by people to reduce the risk of the virus.
