The product was developed by Institute of Nuclear Medicine & Allied Sciences (a Delhi-based DRDO laboratory), along with Gel Craft Healthcare Private Ltd which is based in Ghaziabad. 

According to the Press Information Bureau's (PIB) statement, the system consists of double-layered Ozone sealant technology that will trap the ozone particles as a prerequisite for the disinfection process. The unit is eco-friendly as it consists of a catalytic converter. 

The system complies with International Standards of industrial, occupational, personal, and environmental safety.

There are two variants of Ultra Swachh, one is Ozonated Space and second is Trinetra Technology.  Trinetra technology is a combination of Ozonated space and radical dispenser. Treatment is optimised with automation for a quick disinfection cycle. 

It operates on 15 Ampere, 220 Volts, 50-hertz power supply. 

The dimensions of an Industrial Cabinet to disinfect large quantities at a time are 7’x4’x3.25’. Different sizes will be available soon.
