3B Medical has released the 3B Lumin CPAP Mask Cleaner for disinfection of CPAP masks and accessories.

Lumin works with a disinfection cycle time of only five minutes, no harmful ozone, and a 99.9% kill rate for harmful bacteria, viruses, mold and fungus, according to the company.

The launch of the Lumin “was a direct result of several pulmonary physicians expressing concern with their COPD patients using an ozone based product,” said Jose Llana, MD, national director of sales for 3B Medical. “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 1st, the company said.
