DRDO designs disinfection chamber

On Sunday, DRDO unveiled a full-body disinfection chamber and a special face protection mask for healthcare professionals. The special chamber called ‘PSE’ has been designed by Vehicle Research Development Establishment (VRDE), Ahmednagar, a DRDO Laboratory as a walkthrough enclosure for personnel decontamination, one person at a time, equipped with sanitiser and soap dispenser.

On entering the chamber, the electrically-operated pump creates a disinfectant mist of hypo sodium chloride for disinfecting, which automatically stops after 25 seconds.
