Defense Institute of Advanced Technology, Pune, a supposed university supported by Defense Research and Development Organization, has developed a microwave sterilizer called & # 39; ATULYA & # 39; to disintegrate (COVID-19). The virus disintegrates by differential heating in the range of 560 to 600 degrees Celsius.
The product is a cost effective solution that can be used in portable or fixed installations. This system has been tested for safety for humans and users and has been found to be safe. Depending on the size and shape of different objects, sterilization takes from 30 seconds to a minute. The estimated weight of the system is three kilograms and it can only be used for non-metallic objects.
