Maser, the only Indian medical MSME working on microwave technology for disinfection solution, has launched a new product, ATULYA, to enable sterilization of surfaces, surroundings and aerosols during COVID 19 spread. The product has been launched with an aim to introduce the technology to masses while people together fight the battle against Coronavirus. ATULYA works on microwave technology to disintegrate viruses and bacteria.
ATULYA runs on the technology developed by the Defence Institute of Advanced Technology, Pune, deemed university of DRDO. The sterilizer is operated as a handheld device and depending on the shape and size it has the capability to sterilize objects, surfaces, surroundings and aerosols within 30 seconds to 1 minute with a patented smart technology which enables cold sterilization in the range of 56-60 Celsius temperature (MACSR). The 4.5kg model of the product runs on connected power supply of 5 amp. The company is also working on developing a portable battery version of the same.
Monish Bhandari, Founder and Managing Director, Maser Technology, said, “At Maser we are always working on solutions that ensure safety of people through disinfection and sterilization. This ambition led us to associate with DIAT (DRDO) and introduce ATULYA sterilizer that would enable a safe surrounding for people.”
“The microwave technology of the product can disintegrate viruses and safeguard users during this pandemic. A 30 second simple scan by ATULYA sterilizes any surface upto 5 metres depth, thus eliminating any trace of COVID or similar viruses and bacteria. Prof. K.P. Ray, Dean DIAT (DRDO), is the co-innovator of 'ATULYA' and is a world authority on microwave technology. We consider this our responsibility in the current unprecedented times to bring this solution to the masses,” he added.
Union Minister Shri Nitin Gadkari stated, “It is delightful to see our intelligent Indian minds working on technology backbone and come up with solutions like ATULYA, while we combat COVID 19. This highlights how our Indian MSME’s are taking the vision of ‘Vocal for Local’ a step ahead with every innovation.”
ATULYA has capability to penetrate up to a depth of 5 meters across surfaces. Unlike UV and chemical based products it is proven to be safe against cancer, retina damage and skin diseases. ATULYA is tested for Covid/virus sterilization by DIAT using the revolutionary Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) technique. The unit is compliant to NFX French Sterilization Compliance, STAATT II compliant (USA) and is CE and EN13485 certified for international quality standards.
