IIT Delhi startup has come up with new innovative solution Alcohol-free sanitiser to help people cope with this pandemic. After launching self-sanitizing 50 wash reusable N95 grade antiviral NSafe masks, Nanosafe Solutions, the startup, has developed patented active copper (AqCureTM) infused zero alcohol sanitizer-cum-moisturizing lotion that can provide protection as long as 24 hours to all exposed parts of the body
The revolutionary evolution of Covid-19 prevention measures in these difficult times did not go unnoticed by Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal, who took to tweeter to share this information.
Here is the tweet:
An incredible team at @iitdelhi has launched an active copper (AqCureTM) infused zero alcohol sanitizer cum moisturising lotion, named RubSafe (patented). RubSafe provides prolonged protection up to 24 hours to all exposed parts of the body. Great job team!, tweeted Ramesh Pokhriyal.
The RubSafe sanitizer, with a zero-alcohol composition, offers 24-hour protection against all types of viruses and microbes. The sanitiser can effectively last throughout the day, delivering added protection against any kind of infection or germs.
“To date, most sanitising solutions are infused with either alcohol, most of the time or in some cases nano silver. And the toxicity of silver is a well-known fact. During my research years, I got to learn about the benefits and drawbacks of using silver, copper, and zinc as anti-viral solutions. That is when we zeroed on copper as our sanitization and antimicrobial solution,” said Dr Anasuya Roy, Founder & CEO, Nanosafe told The New Indian Express.
Apparently, RubSafe can deactivate most enveloped as well as non-enveloped viruses, including SARS-CoV-2; which causes COVID-19.
Against conventional nano silver-based sanitising solutions, this sanitiser from Nanosafe provides a much safer alternative with nano copper infusion. Copper is an essential micronutrient for the human body and together with iron, enables the body to form red blood cells (RBCs), claimed IIT Delhi startup team.
