  • The technology will be integrated into their manufacturing processes, ensuring high-quality anti-microbial hospital linen that meets stringent healthcare standards. 
  • The initiative aligns with DRDO’s mission to leverage its research and development expertise for civilian applications. 
  • The anti-microbial bed sheets developed by DRL are specifically designed for military barracks, retaining their anti-microbial properties even after multiple washes. 
  • The initiative aims to create a safer and healthier environment for patients and healthcare workers.
