About Chitra Acrylosorb Secretion Solidification System:

Chitra Acrylosorb Secretion Solidification System is an highly efficient superabsorbent material for liquid respiratory and other body fluid solidification and disinfection for the safe management of infected respiratory secretions. The superabsorbent material has the ability to absorb liquids at least 20 times more than its dry weight. it also comprises of a decontaminant for in situ disinfection. The material has been developed by Dr. Manju S and Dr. Manoj Komath of the department of Biomaterial Science and Technology of the Biomedical Technology wing of SCTIMST.

Advantage of Chitra Acrylosorb Secretion Solidification System:

The use of the superabsorbent material reduces the risk for the hospital staff, the need for personnel for the purpose of disinfecting and cleaning the bottles as well as canisters for reusing them and makes the disposal safer and easier.

Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology (SCTIMST) is an autonomous institute under the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt of India.
