Setting The Standard for COVID Disinfection Testing
Singapore based OTSAW Robotics announces today that they have successfully completed laboratory testing of their OR-X, LED UV light disinfection robot. OTSAW completed laboratory tests on live COVID19 virus that was flown in from the US and tested in a Singapore based lab.
The Only Solution To Leverage LED Lights for COVID Disinfection
The OR-X robot includes a patented disinfection protocol leveraging LED lights. The OR-X is currently the only autonomous mobile robot based disinfection solution on the market to leverage UV LED lighting for the disinfection process.
The lab testing was carried out by A*STAR and completed on August 21st. The test showed a 99.9% efficacy for disinfection was achieved within 5 minutes, for the OTSAW O-RX at a working distance of 2.5m. Only a handful of solutions have completed lab testing with live COVID19 virus. The majority of competitors have used testing on COVID19 analogs such as the SARS virus to demonstrate effectiveness.
A Technology Innovation Award Winning Solution
The OR-X was included in the recent Disinfection Solutions Buyers Guide, where it was awarded a "Technology Innovation" award for the novel innovation of successfully engineering, manufacturing and delivering a LED-based UV light disinfection solution. The advantage of using LED lights over low-pressure mercury UV light bulbs, or pulsed XENON UV light sources is that LED lights consume considerably less power. The significantly lower power consumption means that the OR-X solution can operate longer on a single battery charge. The result is that the OR-X can disinfect larger areas during its working period.
OTSAW is targeting malls, large corporate campuses and hospitals with the OR-X solution. The OR-X solution will be ideal for large campuses with a lot of area to coverage. The design is optimized to make the best use of onboard power.
CEO/Founder of OTSAW Ling Ting Ming said, "The world has gone through drastic changes and is delicately poised socially and economically for changes ahead. OTSAW and the O-RX are now part of this new world as we restart and focus to unite humanity and beat this virus."
