Shycocan earlier introduced a virus attenuation device, which it claims to be the world’s first, that can effectively disable the entire Coronavirus and Influenza families of viruses in indoor spaces with 99.9% efficacy. It also claims that the device is completely safe for humans, animals and the environment, backing it with multiple virology lab test reports.

Now, keeping in mind the rapid spread of Covid-19 during the pandemic, the company has launched a unique packaging solution for its devices consisting of an anti-microbial coating with silver ion technology that has an efficacy of 99% viral reduction. The company said that it provides an added layer of protection from Coronavirus for consumers and others who may come in touch with the packaging of the product.

The company shared with PrintWeek that most consumers are constantly worried about transmission of the virus from packaging of eCommerce 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 antimicrobial packaging to provide its customers the safest possible experience in the current Covid-19 times,” it said.  

“The pandemic-proof packaging solution, sourced from Bengaluru-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,” Shycocan told PrintWeek.

The anti-viral packaging solution is said to effectively protect the Shycocan device and its packaging from harmful pathogens such as bacteria, fungi and viruses.

According to the company, although 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 is said to build “consumers’ confidence around handling packaging” in their homes, it said.

Alok Sharma, CEO, Shycocan Corporation said, “It is only fitting that it [Shycocan devices] gets an anti-viral packaging to match.”

“The new coating over the packaging with silver-ion technology has addressed all consumer concerns about handling and cleanliness throughout the supply chain, from our factory to the doorsteps of consumers, reassuring them that they are protected from infection regardless of how many hands the package has passed through,” Sharma added.

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. It claims that the devices 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.

Rajah Vijay Kumar, inventor of Shycocan, developed a specialised 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, neutralising their positive charge and preventing them from infecting other people,” he explained. “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,” he claimed.

A single device, when mounted, has an effective coverage area of 1,000 sqft. 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,” Kumar claimed.

The company has shipped more than 25,000 devices already. Shycocan has been enabling schools, colleges, homes and businesses such as hospitals, hotels, offices, restaurants, auditoriums, transportation, retail, and airports to get back to normal and serve their internal and external customers in a safe environment.

Shycocan Corporation was founded by a team of blue-chip technology and industry professionals led by Alok Sharma, the former MD of Apple India. Kumar is the scientist-inventor behind the Shycocan device and holds over 30+ inventions globally.

According to the company, its immediate goal is to ensure indoor environments are free of transmission risks from Coronavirus and Influenza virus families of the present and the future for organisations to restart their business and help bring life back to normal. The company backs up its offering with customised consultations, a one-year replacement warranty, a global support and service network including more than 150 cities in India with over 1,000 engineers
and a post-installation audit.
