A cleaner world right in your hands

At Puriphico, we develop technology to improve compliance with proper handwashing practices. 


What We Do

Our Product

Features LED's that indicate real-time how long you have been washing your hands.

Lets you know after you have washed your hands for 20 seconds through a green LED cue. 

Tracks the most relevant handwashing data (such as the percentage of users that washed their hands for 20 seconds), which you can access via a mobile app



In 8th grade, Adrian built the first Puriphico prototype, engineering an electronic system to allow people to maintain proper handwashing practices with the help of an LCD display and visual LED cues

Now three years into the journey, we have developed a highly-accurate handwashing-detection system that is patent pending.

Our current prototype (pictured left) features Bluetooth connectivity and a sensor calibration system. Soon, we will have prototypes capable of sending handwash-compliance data periodically to our partners' respective infection-prevention teams.

Our Team

Adrian Lazzi Founder, CEO

My name is Adrian Lazzi, and I started Puriphico in 2018 with the goal of helping communities combat one of the most long-standing issues to date: improper handwashing. Since then, Puriphico's team has grown, we have a patent pending on our propriety handwashing-detection system, and we have started testing in hospitals!

Charlie Brunold Director of Technology

My name is Charlie Brunold. I initially picked up an interest for the computers after building them with my dad; however, I really developed a passion for computer science after taking my first course in 2018 where I learned javascript at a coding camp. At Puriphico, I lead the development of hand-identification algorithms using Python integration and web development. I look forward to implementing our software onto new boards such as the Raspberry Pi and can’t wait to help expand our products to have numerous new features to help users maintain proper handwashing practices!
