The Department of Science and Technology has sanctioned the production of oxygen concentrators from IIT Kanpur-incubated Indeema Fibres Pvt Ltd. Along with its sister concern ChemDist Membrane Systems Pvt Ltd, the startup will roll out its first batch of 5,500 oxygen concentrators by May 25. The concentrators are for COVID-19 patients whose oxygen saturation levels have dipped to between 80%-90%.

Indeema Fibres has been credited with making international standard N-95 masks last year when the pandemic began. Over the past year, the startup was also working on lightweight oxygen concentrators for Indian Army soldiers posted at high altitudes.
