The LumiCleanse UV-C1 uses the power of germicidal ultraviolet light to effectively kill surface & airborne pathogens. The compact design and integrated motion sensor in this unit enables it to be used safely in a variety of spaces.
The motion sensor automatically shuts the unit off when an animal or person is detected, protecting them from the powerful UVC energy.
- Germicidal UV-C Quartz Lamps with 254nm wavelength has a proven track record for use in germicidal applications.
- Designed with safety in mind. Once the unit is turned on by the remote control, there is a 15 second delay before the UV-C1 light starts, to give the user time to exit the space. There is also an integrated motion sensor. If people accidentally walk into the space while the light is operating – the fixture will automatically shut off.
- Perfect for placement on counters, desks, work stations, etc.
- 8’ cord with plug for easy set-up.
- Low power consumption – uses only 38W.
- Recommended coverage area is 100 sq ft.
- ETL Listed.
Safety precautions and use:
- Do not look at the UV-C light during operation, as it can cause permanent eye damage.
- Avoid exposure to UV-C light, as it can cause skin damage or sunburn.
- Keep out of reach of children and pets. The UV-C1 light should only be used by authorized personnel.
- UV-C light can cause injury to people and pets. Do not operate if people or pets are in the room.
- UV-C light can damage paintings, artwork, photographs, plants and objects with limited UV-C resistance. Remove these objects from the area in order to avoid damage.
- The UV-C1 light does not contain any user serviceable parts. Do not disassemble or modify the light in any way.
- While the UV-C1 light includes a sensor to shut off power when motion is detected, it is strongly recommended that access to the room is prevented during operation. All entrances should be locked and windows covered.
- Exposure to UV-C light has proven germicidal properties. Areas covered or shadowed by other objects will not be affected by the UV-C light. For best results, it may be necessary to move objects or operate the light from multiple positions in the room.

This product may leave behind an odor after the disinfection cycles runs. These odors are not harmful.
Germicidal ultraviolet (UV) light has long been used successfully for the disinfection of water, air, and surfaces, and has become a common practice in the healthcare industry. There has been, however, an unresolved health concern with regard to the residual odors that have often been noted after rooms have been disinfected, and no satisfactory explanation of these possible volatile organic compounds (VOCs) has previously been published. This study explains the residual odors in terms of thiol or mercaptan molecules that can be produced by the UV irradiation of keratin and cysteine. Keratin is a protein that is found in skin squames while cysteine is a similar molecule found in hair. They also both contain a significant amount of sulfur. Skin squames and hair particles are common contaminants of indoor environments and are present in airborne dust as well as being surface-borne. UV photons carry sufficient energy to break the chemical bonds of keratin and cysteine, as well as the chemical byproducts including volatile smaller sulfur-containing molecules that fall into the categories of thiols and mercaptans. The human nose is extremely sensitive to these molecules and can detect them at concentrations as low as 1 part per billion. The smell after UV disinfection is sometimes described as that of burning hair or the pungent odor of rotten eggs or garlic. The latter smell is characteristic of mercaptans. In an indoor environment where the dust loading in the air may typically be about 100 ug/m3(0.000044 grain/ft3), the aftermath of the UV disinfection process will leave behind a concentration of mercaptans of about 2 ppb, or twice the smell threshold level. According to the CSST in Quebec and per OSHA, the safe level for 8 hours of exposure to mercaptans is 500 ppb. Consequently, the actual level obtained after UV disinfection is negligible and therefore it is concluded that the VOCs responsible for the residual odor after UV disinfection do not pose a health hazard to humans.
