Brief Description

Description :

The flocculant system is capable of instantaneous flocculation/gelation, thereby disinfecting both liquid as well as solid samples, rendering them non-infectious, with >99.9% microbial disinfection. Segregation, transportation and incineration of such disinfected medical wastes are easier, safer and decrease medical waste disposal costs for a healthcare facility. Design, testing and manufacturing details are under discussion with the identified industry partner. A combination of flocculant materials have been identified. Optimized the composition for effective flocculation of fluid samples. Treated microbial cultures showed 99% microbial disinfection.
