Bengaluru/New Delhi: Nanotechnology start-up Log 9 Materials — which has come up with a time-crucial, novel technological answer (within the type of a small disinfection chamber that makes use of UV- C rays to kill Coronaviruses) to deal with the rising risk of the transmission of Covid-19 by object surfaces, is associating with the Indian Institute of Science – Bangalore for the ‘CoronaOven’ project.
As a component of the collaboration, Log 9 and IISC – Bangalore will probably be working collectively to hold out additional analysis and optimization for the present ‘CoronaOven’-branded merchandise and in addition launching a quantity of new variants for the identical product.
Notably, the CoronaOven sanitization chamber system, which makes use of UV-C gentle (having wavelength of 253.7 nm) to disinfect surfaces (of numerous objects, family and grocery objects, meals objects, and so forth.), has been scientifically reviewed and verified in phrases of UV depth on the laboratories of IISC.
Speaking in regards to the tie-up, Akshay Singhal, Founder & CEO, Log 9 Materials says, “We at Log 9 are very completely happy to notice that solely in lower than a month’s time since CoronaOven’s official launch, the product has gained overwhelming response in home markets.
Now, following the collaboration with IISC-Bangalore, we’re all set to roll out a number of new product variants of CoronaOven custom-made as per market wants, in addition to expedite the optimization of our current product vary. We are assured that our co-branding with IISC will give us an enormous mileage and credibility increase to scale up the effectiveness of the CoronaOven project.”
Dr. Suryasarathi Bose, Associate Professor, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, who has been related with Log 9 for a analysis project on EMI shielding by graphene composites, has facilitated the newest tie-up between Log 9 Materials and IISC. In the previous, Log 9 and IISC had additionally partnered for Three different tasks.
Dr. Suryasarathi Bose says, “The disinfection chamber designed by Log 9 is extremely efficient and dependable because it radiates multifocal UV-C gentle on every level of the floor on any object to be sterilized, and the UV depth/dosage used on this machine has been licensed and deemed acceptable by IISC.
Given the present state of affairs pertaining to Covid-19, such science-backed improvements have turn out to be the necessity of the hour to curb or restrict the unfold. In view of this, IISC and Log 9’s joint analysis initiatives will probably be important in dashing up additional enhancements on the CoronaOven product.”
CoronaOven is a patent-pending know-how not too long ago developed by Log 9, foundation the scientific precept of UltraViolet germicidal irradiation (a disinfection technique making use of brief-wavelength UVC rays) and an US FDA research which demonstrates that managed UVC gentle can completely injury the RNA sequence of SARS-CoV1 virus and render it incapable of multiplying in residing cells.
This machine can kill every kind of viruses/pathogens (together with viruses from the Corona household) inside 10 minutes roughly and from differing types of surfaces, after an object is positioned contained in the disinfection chamber.
The product has been listed on Government of India’s e-market portal (www.gem.gov.in), and Log 9 is working intently with the NITI Aayog and state police departments and healthcare suppliers throughout India to deploy the product in numerous hospitals, police stations, airports, amongst different public areas.
Taking notice of the progressively worsening Coronavirus state of affairs in our nation, CoronaOven was commercialized (from concept to prototyping to manufacturing and market deployment) by Log 9’s staff in a document-quick (in lower than 15 days) timeframe.
In phrases of certification, CoronaOven is the one licensed product-of-its-kind within the Indian market, which has already earned a UV depth certificates from IISC, Biological Indicator Certificate from Trustwell Hospital, Bengaluru, and BSL-3 Virological Testing is underway at CSIR’s labs.
Log 9 is already manufacturing greater than 200 models of CoronaOven day by day, and expects to scale up manufacturing to 500+ models and develop no less than 10 extra product variants by June 2020.
