The use of ultraviolet ensures that up to 99.9 per cent of bacteria and pathogens are killed in a minute. It's safe and moreover it is portable as the sleek design makes it easy to carry it around." Explaining the advantages and making of this machine further, Principal, School of Entrepreneurship Skills, Professor Ravi Kumar Goyal further said, "The kit can kill almost all types of bacteria and viruses. UV rays exposure can be controlled as well. The box has been made using a robust CKT design technology which makes it long lasting. Also, it has zero maintenance and hassle free installation,"
Professor Choudhary also highlighted that, "We cannot avoid carrying items such as mobile phone, jewellery, laptop or an innocuous appearing letter and all are possible carriers of the pathogens they come in contact with. It is not always possible to clean these things with a sanitizer. Hence, UV E-SAFE kit could prove a great boon."
