An Ultra Violet (UV) Disinfection Tower has been developed by the Laser Science & Technology Centre (LASTEC), a premier laboratory of Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO). The UV Disinfection Tower has been developed to achieve rapid and chemical free disinfection of high infection prone areas. It is a UV based area sanitiser which is beneficial for high tech surfaces such as electronic equipment, computers and other gadgets in laboratories as well as offices that are not suitable for disinfection with chemical methods.
The UV based area sanitiser may be operated remotely through laptop/mobile phone with the help of wifi link and would be also effective for areas with large flow of people such as shopping malls, factories, metros, airports, hotels, offices, etc. It has also the facility of getting switched off on accidental opening of room or human intervention.
