A city-based company LedChip has developed indoor lighting, ‘Raypure,’ claiming to kill 95% of COVID-19 virus in a physical setting within one hour. LedChip Indus Private Limited has developed human-friendly ultraviolet (on-UV) light, which kills viruses and gives light too, compared to the UV light created in 1903 by Niels Finsen, which was harmful to human beings.
LedChip will launch the ‘Raypure’ light at the PHIC (Public Health Innovations Conclave) between November 12-14 at the Hitex Exhibition Center.
The company states that the product has been validated and tested in August 2021 by the Hyderabad-based Centre for Cellular Molecular Biology (CCMB), the premier research organization in frontier areas of modern biology.
Reportedly, the indoor lighting LED technology costs a fraction of air purifiers and is human-friendly, safe, and easy to use. It also needs zero maintenance. The lighting has no noise, no moving parts, clogged filters that need change, unlike air purifiers. The technology of the lighting is transparent, and for the first time, it has been synthesized into single LEDs that emit light as well as the power that kills viruses and bacteria in 60 minutes. The product comes in different sizes and shapes and is customizable to suit needs.
LED chip Indus Private Limited has been a pioneer and also sole producer of LED semiconductors in India for the last 30 years.
