Most of us who have worked on the delivery side of healthcare as a health professional have been trained on aseptic technique. Disinfecting lab or patient treatment areas is standard practice. The COVID-19 pandemic is turning what was once a healthcare practice into standard office practice.

At 3B Medical we have adopted a strict protocol to protect our employees. What benefit is gained from handling your phone, washing your hands, and then picking up your phone again? Absolutely none. For that reason, anyone visiting 3B will notice a Lumin on the front counter. We require employees and visitors to deposit their keys and cellphones in Lumin prior to washing their hands. In addition, everyone volunteers to disinfect common areas (i.e. door handles and counter tops) twice daily.

We already know that UV-C light is extremely effective against most viruses. We just commissioned an outside lab to test Lumin specifically against Human Coronavirus. We expect those results to become available in 2-3 weeks and will share them with anyone interested. On influenza and e-coli, recent testing received a confirmed kill of 99.9997%, which is a remarkable result. One of the things we learned after launching Lumin was that one of its primary uses went well beyond CPAP, and many of our customers routinely throw in their cell phones, electric toothbrushes, car keys, etc. Lumin does double duty as a multi-purpose sanitizer for any personal care item that fits in the drawer.
