Neutral Atom, a home automation start-up, announced its launch of Spectra360, a UV sanitizing and disinfecting tower. Spectra360 is certified by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (Certificate No – CSIO/20-21/YV-C/051a).
The company has adopted a consumer-centric approach to fulfill home and industrial automation requirements. It intends to scale up its production further, given the current Coronavirus pandemic. While the cleaning room reduces the risk of infections, spraying harmful disinfectant can irritate. But Spectra360 meets safety features. The company claims that it is safe for children and pets with zero side-effects.
As an aspiring start-up, the company has addressed the survival of the Coronavirus, DNA virus, and RNA virus on surfaces. Spectra360 has a 99.9% kill rate of viruses and germs, it claims. This has been verified by microbiological tests on-site and also tested by CSIR. Spectra360 claims to efficiently prevent cross-infection in high-risk areas like hotels, hospitals, factories, and offices. This is the fastest way to disinfect as it kills microbes in a few minutes for a room size of 16 x 16 feet. It is entirely free of any chemicals and guarantees 100% safety as it leaves behind no residue. It doesn’t leave any toxic fumes in the environment. It is easy to use with a smartphone app and can be operated through android devices. Unlike other UV disinfectant equipment, its built-in Passive IR (PIR) Sensor ensures that it’s unquestionably safe for everyone.
Anyone coming in the vicinity of the device, sensors detect and automatically pauses the device to ensure human safety from exposure to UV-C Irradiance. Zero recurring cost for chemicals is yet another feature of Spector360. This equipment can be controlled by Bluetooth 5.0 and 2.4 GHz, and 5 GHz Wi-Fi enabled smart device. Its easy-to-use interface ensures using the device is easy for all the users.
Speaking on the launch, Neutral Atom chief executive officer and founder Amit More, chief operating officer and co-founder Amit Dalvi said, “India crossing 5 million coronavirus cases clearly indicates people are bringing infection to their homes and offices with purchased goods and everyday objects like mobiles, wallets, electronic gadgets, food items, currency and credit or debit cards. In short, these objects are difficult to sanitize or disinfect with the help of alcohol-based sanitizers or with baking soda solution.”
“It is the need of the hour to develop UV disinfectant equipment that controls the coronavirus pandemic. And our Spectra360 compliments the immediate and long-term need for safety with ease. This is something that next generation would require. It’s as necessary as having an AC in ATMs, corporate offices, hospitals or restaurants,” they added.
According to the company, with the global UV disinfection equipment market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.3% from 2020 to 2025, Spectra360 is sure to prosper in this industry. The market is revolutionized by masks for protection. With this growth, Neutral Atom has initiated a conversation with investors to raise funds for scaling up their operations, expanding their production units to grow, and come up with a long-life plan. Since their UV disinfectant tower is made for DNA and RNA viruses, they can sustain in this booming market even after this Coronavirus pandemic.
With the Spectra360 app, there would be an option to switch the disinfectant equipment on and off. An option for a count-down timer for 15 minutes would also be there. It will switch off automatically after 15 minutes. It enables to schedule as well. For instance, schedule it for the clinic by 8:30 AM according to the working days.
