Kerala startup develops device to sterilise coronavirus in air

Has a lifespan of up to nine years 

An incubator under Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM) has developed a pioneering electronic device that could contain airborne novel coronavirus. The new device of Allabout Innovations Pvt Ltd — ‘Wolf Airmask — performs real-time sterilisation, rupturing the SARS-CoV-2.

The device has proven its efficiency at tests conducted by Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology (RGCB), an autonomous institute of the Department of Biotechnology. The gadget can reduce 99% of the novel coronavirus in just 15 minutes, according to the test held with support from the ICMR (Indian Council of Medical Research).

The airmask, developed from German technology and with components from Denmark, can be used for 60,000 hours, spanning nine years. Facilitating purification of air upto a space of 1,000 square feet, it requires no service or change of parts.

The Wolf Airmask has the capacity to deactivate the microbes, bacteria and fungus while also significantly reducing the subject MS2 bacteriophage. It brings the ozone production to BDL (below detection level) as per a test with a lab under the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL).
