Safely Disinfects Equipment with Effective UV Light
The Lumin CPAP Cleaner uses a strong UV light instead of ozone or activated oxygen to kill 99% of bacteria, pathogens, and fungi present on items placed inside the device. UV light is a very effective disinfectant and is used in a variety of ways in the health industry including hospitals. Use of UV light is an alternative to other methods of disinfecting which have shown to be harmful if not handled correctly. To ensure the Lumin is used safely, there is a shutoff mechanism that engages if the drawer is opened, causing the UV light to turn off to ensure UV light is not exposed to a users' eyes.
Quick, Five-Minute Cycle
One of the best features of the Lumin is how quickly it can have items ready for use. The Lumin operates on a five-minute cycle after which items inside are disinfected and safe to be used immediately. Simply pull the Lumin tray out, place the item inside, close the tray, and press the power button. In five minutes the Lumin will emit a beep to indicate the cycle is finished, and the items can be removed and used. It's as simple as that.
Non-CPAP Item Sanitization
Although a great way to clean CPAP masks and water chambers, the Lumin is not limited to sanitizing only CPAP items. Any non-living item which can fit inside the Lumin tray can be sanitized. This includes common items that require cleaning such as dentures, toothbrushes, hearing aids, and many more.
Easy-to-Use Design with No Replacement Parts
The Lumin sanitizer does not require any ongoing maintenance or replacement parts. The body of the device and tray can be wiped down if needed with a soft, non-abrasive cloth if it becomes dirty, but otherwise, the Lumin does not require extensive upkeep. The UV bulb inside the Lumin can be replaced but is intended to last the lifetime of the Lumin.
Please Note: The Lumin is intended to be a supplemental part of a regular cleaning schedule.
