PLEASE NOTE- This Does NOT sanitize a PAP device.
The Lumin UV Light Sanitizing Device from 3B Medical is a safe and effective alternative to harsher, more expensive devices on the market today used to sanitize CPAP equipment. The Lumin uses a powerful amount of UV light contained inside of a fail-safe chamber to kill bacteria in just five minutes.
Safely Disinfects Equipment with Effective UV Light
The Lumin uses a strong UV light 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.
Lumin User Manual Sanitization Tips
While the Lumin will sanitize and disinfect from harmful bacteria, it will not remove any physical debris left on items put inside the device. It is recommended to wipe items clean before using the Lumin to ensure the item is thoroughly cleaned. Surface of Items Tip The Lumin device will sanitize the surface of items only.
As a result, it will not sanitize items such as hoses, the inside of nasal pillows, or dual flap cushions as adequately as needed. It is recommended to clean these items regularly and replace as directed to ensure clean, effective therapy.
The Lumin requires no extensive cleaning or upkeep.
If the aluminum-coated tray requires cleaning, do so with a soft cloth and avoid abrasive materials that could cause scratches. The body of the Lumin can be wiped with a damp cloth if necessary.
UV Bulb Tips
The bulb included with the Lumin device is designed to outlast the lifespan of the device itself, meaning it should never need to be replaced. However, if the bulb does need to be replaced, it can be purchased separately and easily installed. Grab the base of the bulb in the Lumin device and pull to remove, then insert and push the new bulb into the socket. Although the Lumin bulb emits no mercury during use, like any other fluorescent bulb there is a trace amount of mercury present in the glass bulb. If the bulb should break, it should be cleaned and handled the same as a regular fluorescent bulb. Internal Tray Dimensions The internal tray of the Lumin roughly measures 9 1/2" L X 6 1/2" W x 4"H. The manufacturer advises that anything taller than 6" runs the risk of touching the bulb and interfering with the ability of the device to disinfect. It's recommended to not attempt to disinfect anything taller than 4".
The Lumin is not a toy and is not intended to be used by children. The Lumin has a powerful UV light bulb included. Use with care in case of broken glass. Do not use around sinks, tubs, pools, or any bodies of water. The UV that is emitted in the closed chamber is not compatible with life. Never place living creatures in the Lumin. Do not stack objects on top of your Lumin. Use this device only for its intended use as described in the user manual. If the equipment is not used in the manner specified, the protection provided by the equipment may be impaired. Do not attempt to operate this device with the drawer open. The device was designed to shut off automatically when the drawer is open. It is important not to defeat or tamper with this safety feature as UVC light can cause damage to eyesight.
The manufacturer recommends that new patients purchase their devices, masks and initial accessories from a homecare company that can provide an individualized patient equipment setup, clinical and after-sales support, and a program to assist patients with therapy success.
CPAP Clinic meets this set of requirements by providing you with the following services:
Just received my order in the mail . As previously it arrived timely and complete . The prices are competitive to other providers but cheaper than local stores Will purchase again from this location.
I have been purchasing my CPAP equipment from this website for about 5 years. I have never had a bad experience with them. I can count on their professionalism each and every transaction. They have excellent prices, often half of what I was paying in retail stores in Edmonton, and their free shipping is fast and efficient. There is no need for me to look for CPAP supplies elsewhere. They are readily available to answer questions. I fully recommend them!
Much to my chagrin, I just recently started using a CPAP machine. When I was still in testing mode, I was having a disagreement with my service provider, here in Ottawa; so a friend referred me to Rob Pearce in the Mississauga CPAP Clinic. I was apprehensive about doing the deal long distance; but was I surprised. I couldn t believe the support and encouragement he provided. He also sent me a loaner, which I received in 3 days; and my purchased machine arrived 5 days later. Rob and his colleagues were efficient and professional and answered all my concerns. And the icing on the cake was that his price was better than the quote I had received from the Ottawa company. I would not hesitate to recommend having your CPAP needs provided by CPAP Clinic. They understand the meaning of service.
