Local creative company MixMedia has provided one unit of contactless hand-sanitising dispenser Mixel+ to the Ministry of Development (MoD) on Monday.
The device is the second generation Mixel+ that is equipped with a body temperature scanner, marking the first unit of the latest model placed at a government building.
Deputy Chief Executive Officer of MixMedia Michelle Lo in an interview said that MoD is the eighth ministry to receive the Mixel+ which initiative aimed to encourage good hygiene habits.
“We are happy that the device is well-received and appreciate their openness to try out the Mixel+ at their premises,” she said.
Since introducing Mixel+ two months ago, MixMedia has been actively working with the local ministries to have the device available in government buildings.
Mixel+ is an auto contactless hand-sanitising dispenser that releases standardised dose of readily-stored hand sanitiser liquid or foam through a motion sensor by placing hands at the bottom of the unit.
Not only that, but the device can detect the body temperature of individuals who stand in front of the Mixel+ and instantly informs the person on the digital screen display.
This new feature is in line with the current requirement by the ministry of health where body temperatures need to be checked before entering any business premises or office buildings, said MixMedia in a statement.
The internal auto-dispenser can hold up to 1,000ml and supports both foam and liquid type hand sanitiser.
Furthermore, the device also comes with a built-in high-definition digital screen to display up-to-date information, notice, health scanned QR codes and any other static or video content.
It also comes with a built-in speaker for clear audio and WiFi for easy internet access – it is definitely not the typical hand-sanitising dispenser.
On hand to receive the auto-dispenser was Minister of Development Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Ir. Haji Suhaimi Haji Gafar which device was given by MixMedia’s Deputy Chief Executive Officer Michelle Lo and Deputy Chief Creative Officer Hamdi Matussin.
Among other attendees were Deputy Minister of Development Ar. Haji Marzuke Haji Mohsin; Permanent Secretary (Infrastructure, Housing and Professional) Ir. Haji Amer Hishamuddin POKAP DSS Haji Zakaria and Deputy Permanent Secretary (Corporate and Legal) Sr. Hajah Norhayati Haji Mohd Yaakubare.
Mixel+ is currently available for purchase or rental from MixMedia. Interested businesses or individuals can get more information about the device on the agency’s website mmwcreative.com or call their business development managers directly.
