The first lot is getting shipped to five countries Mali, Ecuador, Zimbabwe, Ghana and Haiti with the support of the Collegiate Congress of the UN Master Plan, the statement said.
"We have been receiving orders from within the country and abroad..we are planning to ramp up the production after completing the initial shipment," Sumith C Mohan, Director, Devaditek, said.
The bacterial count testing of the Lumos was performed at the RGCB facility in Kochi. This is part of a series of hardware products getting developed at Maker Village in the context of the pandemic, Maker Village CEO Prasad Balakrishnan Nair said.
The design and production of Lumos have been a collaborative effort of doctors, healthcare professionals, engineers and innovators.
The Lumos chamber uses UVGI (ultraviolet germicidal irradiation) technology for disinfection.
The prime objective of Lumos is to prevent the spread of nosocomial infections during COVID-19.
Regular use of the chamber to disinfect the personal belongings of healthcare professionals such as mobile phones, wristwatches, stethoscopes and N95 masks in the isolation wards or nurses stations will help prevent infectious breakout within a healthcare facility.
The device can swiftly disinfect facial masks, documents, laptops, cell phones and dongles, take-outs, parcels, stationery and wallets.
Unlike traditional methods of disinfection used in hospitals, UVGI is sustainable and non-toxic for the environment and uses ultraviolet light to inactivate pathogens.
Lumos can also sanitize household utensils, fruits, vegetables and toys.
Decontamination chambers are also available for banks and public offices such as ATMs, post-offices for sanitizing mails and currencies,according to the statement.
The company has also released a low-cost mobile battery- powered unit.
The 2016-founded Maker Village is a joint initiative of Union Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology and the Government of Kerala with IIITM-K in Thiruvananthapuram as the nodal agency.
