3B Medical is unable to make a marketing claim on disinfection of a hose due to the large variety, shapes, and colors of CPAP hoses. Disinfection by UVC depends on optics. In testing with standard CPAP hoses, sufficient UVC penetrates the hose to offer sanitization and 3B Medical recommends using Lumin twice weekly as part of your CPAP maintenance schedule. Alternatively, purchase the award winning Lumin Bullet, an accessory device to the Lumin that is designed to disinfect your hose from the inside out.
