3B Medical has unveiled Lumin, a CPAP mask and accessories cleaner.
Lumin works with a disinfection cycle time of 5 minutes, does not use ozone, and has a 99.9% kill rate for harmful bacteria, viruses, mold, and fungus, according to 3B.
Jose Llana, MD, 3B’s national director of says in a release that the launch of the Lumin “was a direct result of several pulmonary physicians expressing concern with their COPD patients using an ozone based product. We wanted to develop a product that would not damage the CPAP machine itself and had zero risk of exposing a respiratory patient to a lung irritant.”
The Lumin will ship commercially on March 1.
