What We Do

At Puriphico, in addition to helping students throughout the world realize their own technological/innovative dreams through our Build-Your-Own program, we develop proprietary technology to improve compliance with proper handwashing practices


How we do this

  • How do we improving compliance with proper handwashing practices?

    • ​By placing our device adjacent to any faucet, you can see real-time how long you have been washing your hands through LED cues.

    • When you see the green light flash, you know that you have washed your hands for 20 seconds, thereby eradicating harmful bacteria! 

  • How do we help students realize their technological/innovative dreams?

    • Through our Build-Your-Own program, we provide a means of, yes, building your own Puriphico but, more importantly, learning fundamental skills involved with realizing your innovative dreams, including 3D printing, programming, and circuit design tutorials. 



  • 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

  • After years of refining skills in the development of Puriphico, our team has introduced the Build-Your-Own program to help other ambitious students achieve their own technological/innovative feats beyond the classroom.

  • Now three years into the journey, we have developed a highly-accurate handwashing-detection system that we have provisionally patented. Our current prototype (pictured left) features Bluetooth connectivity and a sensor calibration system. Developing technology is challenging, of course, and it would mean a lot to all of us if you could show your support by subscribing to our website. Soon, we will have prototypes capable of sending handwash-compliance data periodically to our partners' respective infection-prevention teams.

Welcome! 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. I built the first prototype in eighth grade, and have since worked nonstop to improve the handwashing-detection system and bring Puriphico to hospitals around the state.

    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!
