A bacteria-killing solution originally designed for first responders and health care workers now is being offered to the public by a Clawson company.
Lumacuity LED has introduced LumaBlue to the southeast Michigan market, a series of bacteria-killing blue light LEDs that are designed for hair salons, gyms, retail, medical and dental facilities, food processing facilities, schools, day care centers, assisted living facilities, and other places and markets with a commercial or residential focus.
The solution, which was brought to the area through a partnership with Cincinnati-based Neu-Tech Energy Solutions, also kills mold, mildew, and fungi. The company states LumaBlue not only kills the toughest of bacteria, it also relieves pain and speeds up healing. LumaBlue began as a resource for first responders and health care frontline workers, many of whom are commonly exposed to harmful bacteria such as MRSA/staph, strep, salmonella, and more.
Blue light is 100 percent natural, drug and chemical free, non-invasive, non-ablative, does not cause itching, burning, or stinging, and is safe for all skin types and ages, according to the company.
Among 15 offerings on LumaBlue’s website, prices range from $79 for a LED Bacteria Killing Blue Light Par 38 to $795 for three different products.
“LumaBlue is centered on maintaining the highest degree of safety and cleanliness of workspaces, staff, and customers in an easy-to-use format,” says Len Smith, president of Lumacuity.
The products can be retrofitted into existing light structures and compartments or sold as portable units. They are safe for skin and have a 50,000-hour lifespan.
“Even after traditional cleaning methods, dangerous bacteria have been shown to linger throughout the nooks and crannies of many firehouses, EMS vehicles, hospitals – even on oxygen tanks and brake pedals,” Smith says.
Lumacuity LED was founded in 2013 and services manufacturing facilities, warehouses, restaurants, schools, consumer goods, and retail businesses with LED lighting design, products, and installation.
