Meanwhile, Prof. Dr. Chong Pei, who is a Biochemist from University Taylors provided feedback on Medistick. “I did pass the Medistick to students in two incubators. One incubator was with Medistick, while the other was an incubator without Medistick at 35 degrees C. It turned out that results proved that Medistick actually works on killing bacteria surrounding us.
Ms. Balvinder Kaur, serving as a Pharmacist, laid out a detailed and impactful demonstration on the safety and harm from CLO2 and some guidelines by government. She concluded that Chlorine dioxide would be a powerful disinfectant as well as abroad oxidant and sanitising agent. It functions by disrupting cell membranes and protein synthesis. This makes it a vital product to be used in the fight against COVID-19.

This disinfectant and deodorant device can play a role in maximising protection during the pandemic.

The company has the MDA certificate provided by Medical Device Authority under Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia (KKM) to import the product legally.
