Disinfection of Bio Pathogen
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the world became aware of the microorganisms that contaminate our everyday workspaces and how they can spread via surfaces and air particulates. In this project we identify the best disinfection technology currently available and recommendations for future research. The objective was to propose an autonomous disinfection device that could operate in under one hour with a 99% efficacy against pathogens. We compiled our research on existing disinfection methods into a comprehensive report, built a prototype for proof of concept, and tested a device known as ‘Steriliz’ to understand limitations of ultraviolet technology.
