Compass Health to Distribute 3B’s Lumin

Compass will be the sole distributor for 3B Medical’s UV-based CPAP disinfector.

3B Medical has tapped Compass Health Brands as the sole distributor for its Lumin CPAP disinfection device.

The Lumin uses ultraviolet light to kill mold, fungus and 99.9 percent of harmful bacteria without the need for ozone, which can worsen some respiratory diseases, decrease the body's ability to fight respiratory infections and cause other respiratory problems, such as coughing, chest pain and shortness of breath, according to information from the Environmental Protection Agency. And, though the Lumin is designed for CPAP disinfection, it can disinfect anything else that fits inside its drawer, as well, from hearing aids to toothbrushes.

"We are delighted to be partnering with Compass Health for the distribution of the Lumin," said Alex Lucio, CEO of 3B Medical, in a prepared statement. "Compass Health has an excellent reputation for customer service and a wide customer base within the HME market who intimately service CPAP patients."

"We are pleased to be selected as 3B Medical's distribution partner and look forward to offering our homecare providers with a safe and easy disinfecting device their patients will love," said Compass Health Brands President and CEO Stuart Straus, in a news release. "The Lumin is the perfect complement to our growing line of CPAP masks, tubing, filters and other supplies, and in line with our goal of providing our dealers with a one-stop shop for all their product needs."
