Financial Express/ BatchKar - 28th June 2020.

Do you know that the everyday electronic items that we carry around, such as mobile phones, headphones, laptops, car keys, etc, also attract a lot of disease-causing germs? Thanks to a disinfectant machine called MinionLabs UV Saaph, we can keep the harmful pathogens at bay. A creation of a Bengaluru-based energy analytics startup, MinionLabs, the product is priced at Rs 10,999 and comes with 28 liters capacity and sanitizes objects in less than 10 minutes.
Gokul Shrinivas, CEO, and founder of Minion Labs says, “We started working on this product as soon as the pandemic reached the Indian shores. Our product is dedicated to the spirit of keeping life normal and moving, without allowing pathogens to take over prosperity and growth.” Basically, there are two models available – MinionLabs UV Saaph Standard and MinionLabs UV Saaph Mobile. The product can serve the large B2C and B2B markets and can be used to disinfect grocery items, food items, supermarket deliveries, water bottles takeaways, utensils, or packages.
