Virus Attenuation Device Maker Shycocan also comes with unique Anti-virus Product Packaging in Pandemic

Ahmedabad

Most consumers are constantly worried about transmission of the virus from packaging of e-commerce deliveries and more and have to keep disinfecting the cartons, boxes that arrive from outdoors. But Shycocan, the makers of the world’s only virus attenuation device that disables the Coronavirus and Influenza virus families in enclosed spaces with 99.9%* efficacy indoors as proven in multiple lab tests also comes with an anti-microbial packaging to provide its customers the safest possible experience in the current Covid-19 times. The pandemic-proof packaging solution, sourced from Bangalore-based packaging innovator Ficus Pax, consists of an anti-microbial coating with silver ion technology that is validated with an efficacy of 99% viral reduction. It provides an added layer of protection from the Coronavirus for consumers and others who may handle the packaging of the product as it moves through the supply chain.

The Covid-19 pandemic has thrown up challenges in all spheres of life. A major concern is the prevention of transmission of infection from hard surfaces, textiles, paper products, etc. The anti-viral packaging solution effectively protects the Shycocan device and its packaging from harmful pathogens like bacteria, fungi and viruses. Whilst anti-microbial packaging technology would never replace good hygiene practices and due care, the extra protective layer provides consumers with the confidence and trust they require in these unprecedented times. The technology will further build consumers’ confidence around handling packaging in their homes.

Manufactured by Bengaluru-based Shycocan Corporation, the wall-mounted, cylindrical devices have no chemicals, UV rays, radiation or side-effects, and are completely safe for humans, animals and the environment. They work on all current and future variants and mutants of the Coronavirus and Influenza family of viruses, protecting people’s health and saving millions of hours of lost productivity.

Dr. Rajah Vijay Kumar, Inventor of Shycocan, developed a specialized device made of a super-alloy which produces photons of high intensity when excited. Upon striking solid surfaces such as walls, furniture and dust particles in the air, these photons emanate electrons. These electrons get attached to the positive protein on the shell of the Coronavirus and Influenza family of viruses, neutralizing their positive charge and preventing them from infecting other people. In the presence of Shycocan, anyone touching a previously infected surface will not contract the virus as it would have been attenuated. The Shycocan device provides far greater protection than any other technology available. The super-alloy that generates photons does not deteriorate, due to which Shycocan has a long lifespan and requires minimal servicing and no consumables.

A single device when mounted has an effective coverage area of 1,000 Sq. Ft (or 10,000 cubic feet). Multiple devices can be installed to cover a larger indoor space. The device is already in use in India, US and many countries in Europe, Asia Pacific, Australia, New Zealand, Middle East, and South Africa. It is seeing a robust demand from institutional buyers. The company has shipped more than 25,000 devices already. Shycocan is enabling schools, colleges, homes and businesses like hospitals, hotels, offices, restaurants, auditoriums, transportation, retail, and airports get back to normal and serve their internal and external customers in a safe environment.
