SPOKOJAN™ Mosquito Coil
Mosquito coils are a popular choice to repel mosquitoes. They are simple, inexpensive, and are already well integrated in the daily lives of Malaysians. They are made of natural recycled products such as sawdust and coconut shells that are environmentally friendly in comparison to other mosquito control products.
In realizing a useful and efficient method to control mosquitoes, the Tropical Infectious Diseases Research & Education Center (TIDREC), University of Malaya and Semio Technology Co., Ltd - a company issued under the University of Malaya, have collaborated to produce an innovative new product using an “old” method by incorporating MMA as a mosquito attractant in common mosquito coils. The product SPOKOJAN™ has already been commercialized and two patents have been obtained to ensure product disclosure and ownership.
