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.
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. This means your bottles are not being sanitized properly. But with Klistem’s light source being at the bottom, UV-C rays are able to fully target the entire inside of your bottle, maximizing sanitation.
To ensure proper sanitation, it is important to remove all moisture within bottles. But current UV-C sanitation products do not properly ventilate the bottom or irregular crevices of bottles, leaving water droplets in these areas. On the other hand, Klistem’s drying system requires the bottle to stand upside down, with the air source being at the bottom. In effect, gravity pulls the water droplets to the bottom, while the breeze dries out any moisture left inside the bottle.
You like your reusable bottle, but not the stench? No matter how thoroughly you clean your bottle, the smell lingers. This is caused by the remaining bacteria that cannot be eliminated simply with soap and water. Now with complete bacteria removal, your bottles will not only be clean, but also deodorized!
To use Klistem, simply remove the lid and gently push down the bottle. After just 2 minutes, your bottle is both sanitized and dried!
Do not worry about your bottle tipping over. As a company that prioritizes safety, Klistem will shut off as soon as the bottle is removed from place.
You can use Klistem anywhere, anytime with a 5-pin USB cable and a USB port. You can even connect it to your computer!
The colored LED light at the bottom of the product allows you to track the progress of sanitation, and gives a subtle ambiance to the room.

Before planning and designing our products, we contemplate about “What is most valuable to the customer?”
In our busy lives, it is easy to look over personal hygiene, but cleanliness is a fundamental value that must be preserved. Therefore, we work to prioritize that value above anything else.
Klistem will deliver a new concept of sanitation so that personal hygiene would no longer be a worrisome issue for users.
Klistem will always be by your side.
Risks and challenges
We currently have a mockup in preparation for mass production, and our prototypes have been rigorously tested by our engineering and manufacturing experts in order to create an optimal final product.
However, we are aware that Klistem may face additional changes to meet manufacturing requirements. In addition to keeping our backers up to date, we will make sure any changes during production uphold our mission and meet your interests. We will also keep backers continuously informed of any updates or changes.
We truly believe that we will bring Klistem to the masses, and we have networks and resources in hardware engineering, tooling, manufacturing, distribution, and certification to make this happen.
We are ready for any challenges that we may encounter on the way, and we promise our complete devotion to bringing Klistem into production and to our backers on time. We promise complete transparency and we will communicate on a regular basis.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
