Businesses in Ohio that usually cater to the defense sector are changing their business production to produce critical hand sanitizers for first responders on the frontlines of the coronavirus outbreak.
Dayton-based Battle Sights Technologies has repurposed the usage of Craytech, a pressure-activated chemiluminescence used by soldiers to write messages only seen under night-vision, to create hand sanitizer. To date, Battle Sights has produced 925 8-ounce bottles for local first responders.
“That’s what makes Battle Sight unique — our speed,” said Nicholas Ripplinger, Battle Sights founder and U.S. Army veteran.
Another Dayton-based company Tempagenix, is producing wearable thermometer strips that can monitor temperature changes up to 48 hours, reports Dayton Daily News.
