Linc Pen and Plastics Limited has announced the launch of Pentonic Covid-19 Killer, a finger-free touch device that aims to keep users safe in cases of unavoidable physical contact.
Priced at Rs 150, Pentonic Covid-19 Killer is a pocket-sized, retractable, sterilising marker that can be used on surfaces while one is on the move, like elevator buttons, doorbells, card swipe machines, ATM buttons, vending machines, switches and innumerable other areas where physical contact might have otherwise been inevitable. Measuring 122mm in height and 20mm in width, it functions as an extension of one’s index finger, as per Linc.
According to the company, the 70% ethanol-based ink of the Pentonic Covid-19 Killer also sterilises the surface it touches. The marker-like design is meant to enable one-handed use. The tool is operated with a push button and comes with a replaceable ethanol-based ink refill.
Pentonic Covid-19 Killer will be available at retail stores, stationery shops and pharmaceutical chains across cities like Kolkata, Delhi, Gurgaon, Jaipur, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Chennai, Bangalore and Trivandrum starting next month (August). The device can also be purchased on e-commerce platforms like Amazon and Flipkart.
