Achievements :

There will be provisions for safe insertion of files/ papers into the chamber. The lamp energy, exposure time, and lamp-file distance could be controlled remotely. The whole setup will be designed in such a way that harmful UVC radiation won’t escape out of the box.


Spreading of microorganisms through surfaces could be prevented effectively in a non contact mode. The chamber could be provided to local administration offices.
