OptiMaser is a mobile microwave medical waste disinfection system which can be deployed at all public health centres /hospitals where infectious waste is generated

OptiMaser, a mobile microwave medical waste disinfection system manufactured by S.S. Medical Systems has requested the intervention of Union government expressing its concern over the process being followed to establish Govt. E Marketplace (GEM) for government procurement by writing letters to Ministry of Health & Family Welfare(MoH&FW) and Ministry of Commerce and industry.

Based on recommendations of Group of Secretaries made to Prime Minister, the Government decided that DGS&D will create a one stop Government eMarketplace (GeM) to facilitate online procurement of common use Goods & Services required by various Government Departments/ Organisations/ PSUs.

OptiMaser is developed by Society for Applied Microwave Electronic Engineering and Research (SAMEER), a scientific society of Department of Electronics and Information Technology (Deity). Urging the Government, a company release informed, this technology appropriately fits in the Governments Initiative of ‘Make in India’ and ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’. This can be deployed at all public health centres /hospitals where infectious waste is generated.

Monish Bhandari, Executive Director, Marketing & Tech Support, OptiMaser says “We, S. S. Medical Systems, in the year 2014, had taken a Transfer of Technology from Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (MeitY), for manufacture of Medical waste Disinfection System, now commercialised by the name of OptiMaser. This ToT was undertaken as our initiative to be a part of ‘Make in India’ mission. The product is enhanced & developed with 24 months of in-house persistent research & development, and was perfected for launch in the year 2016 in India & abroad. In the event of this extension not being granted, nor the GeM platform having provision for selling of patented indigenous products, it will not only kill this indigenous product but also the emergence of a growing Indian industry”.
