Maker Village, Kochi come up with agile multipurpose decontamination device which sanitize items

Kochi, May 28 (UNI) Maker Village Kochi has came up with an agile multipurpose decontamination device that can sanitize items ranging from N95 masks to vegetables, thus checking the spread of COVID-19.

‘Lumos’ has been designed specifically to address the coronavirus pandemic, but the certified UVC medical-grade disinfection system can also kill an array of pathogens. These include SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV, germs causing different types of influenza and MS2 bacteriophage besides several strains of bacteria and fungi, an official release said on Thursday.
Designed by Devaditek Innovations at Maker Village, the hardware startup has already begun production and is getting ready for supply to various institutions and hospitals across the state.
Lumos, which collaborates with the Collegiate Congress under the United Nation’s Master Plan initiative, is also being distributed overseas where the pandemic has hit the hardest.
The first lot is getting shipped to 5 countries — Mali, Ecuador, Zimbabwe, Ghana and Haiti — with the support of the Collegiate Congress of the UN Master Plan.
