Co-developed by Avalon SteriTech and MTR Corporation, MoonStar is a four-wheel drive (4WD) disinfection robot that is highly maneuverable and can overcome challenging physical terrain to execute disinfection operations. The device, which has been regularly adopted by Hong Kong metro system and airline to combat the raging pandemic, is equipped with a dual-nozzle system and can dispense vapourised hydrogen peroxide (VHP) or professional disinfectants covering all exposed surfaces and crevices with highly effective anti-bacterial effects.
VHP destroys or eliminates all form of microbial life, including bacteria, spores, fungi and viruses, including demonstrated efficacy against human coronavirus. It leaves no toxic residue, only water vapour and oxygen, and highly compatible with wide variety of materials.
The previous model of MoonStar also attained the Certificate of Merit at HKIE Innovation Award 2021.
