NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Aug. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Klistem, a portable sterilizer, uses UV-C light users to eradicate 99.99% of bacteria on their reusable bottles or other household items. A recent study conducted by New Jersey-based EmLab P&K reported over 300,000 bacteria colonies in a typical reusable water bottle, which is more than what a household toilet harbors. The lingering stench on reusable bottles is caused by this remaining bacteria that cannot be cleaned with soap and water.

Klistem combats this problem by using the 253.7nm wavelength, which is found to be most effective in debilitating bacterial DNA to prohibit reproduction. Because UV-C sanitation is only effective upon contact, it is essential that rays completely reach the inside of the bottle. However, with the top-to-bottom design of current sanitation products on the market, UV-C rays are not fully distributed and are blocked by shadows. Klistem's unique design puts the bottle upside-down, which allows gravity to pull the remaining water droplets outside the bottle. With the light and air source being at the bottom, UV-C rays and air flow reaches all the crevices of the bottle. This is the key to Klistem's maximum sanitation.

"In our busy lives, it is easy to look over personal hygiene, but cleanliness is a fundamental value that must be preserved. Through Klistem, we have prioritized that value above anything else," says Founder and CEO, Sungdoo Hong.

Klistem's small and compact design with USB charging allows users to stay hygienic anywhere, anytime. To use Klistem, simply remove the lid and gently push down the bottle. After just two minutes, the bottle will be both sanitized and dried! The colored LED indicator at the bottom reflects the progress of sanitation as well. If the bottle is ever knocked out of place, the integrated safety mechanism automatically shuts Klistem off.

Klistem's primary features include:

  • Perfect sterilization & deodorization: Stench eliminated with 99.99% removal of bacteria in 90 seconds
  • Drying: Reaches every crevice of bottle and promotes proper sterilization
  • Easy operation: Simply remove the lid and push the bottle down
  • Automatic power control: Safely shuts down after one hour of airflow
  • USB charging: With a 5-pin cable, connect to your computer, or any USB port
  • LED indicator: Indicates the progress of the sanitation
  • Light and compact: Can comfortably be carried on-the-go

Klistem can now be pre-ordered on Kickstarter ( for $49 (Super Early Bird), $59 (Early Bird), or $69 (Single Pack). After the campaign, the company anticipates manufacturing and delivery to be complete by December 2018.
