The MOU was formally signed by Hitesh Patel, Managing Director of Instashield, and Marc Elrich, County Executive of Montgomery, Maryland, in the presence of delegations from both the United States and India.

Instashield’s revolutionary medical device technology is designed to disable a wide range of viruses and fungi. This innovative device has received validation from the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB), Government of India, and is the world’s first of its kind to effectively neutralize various viruses, including COV2. Instashield emits hypercharge high-velocity electrons that strategically target the s-protein of the corona family of viruses, significantly reducing infectivity and curbing air and surface-borne transmission. The device generates an electron cloud across enclosed spaces, providing coverage over vast areas, starting from 5,000 square feet, and activates within just 18 minutes. This patented technology is certified by accredited labs and ensures safety for both human occupants and the environment. Instashield has already made a successful entry into the Indian market in 2021 through various channels, including distributors, institutions, hospitals, pharmacies, and online platforms like Amazon.
In recognition of its ground-breaking innovation, Instashield was awarded as the fast-growing Medical Device Technology company during the event.
