ANNIHILATOR LUMENMAX PL/CL24 is currently the only professional hybrid LED luminaire on the market that combats pathogens. Its effectiveness in inactivating viral and bacterial pathogens has been confirmed by research conducted at the Department of Biotechnology and Food Microbiology at the University of Life Sciences in Wrocław.

The LED ANNIHILATOR LUMENMAX ceiling lighting and disinfection system owes its effectiveness to a number of technical aspects.

This is possible by applying the highest quality UVC LEDs with a semi-conductor chipset from a leading Korean manufacturer in the frame, and thanks to the use of double-cleaned JGS-1 quartz lenses with the appropriate focus, we have created a LED module, which is an extremely effective weapon in the fight against viral and bacterial pathogens.

Carefully selected radiation power of the ANNIHILATOR LUMENMAX module, with a peak wavelength of 273 nm, causes dynamic destruction and inactivation of pathogenic microorganisms. ANNIHILATOR LUMENMAX is a virucidal and bactericidal setting, however, with the appropriate exposure time (and the resulting radiation dose), radiation also destroys single-celled fungi, mold spores, protozoa, mites or algae. Thanks to the multi-point (coming from many individual frames) conical radiation emission, surfaces are decontaminated by rays reaching them at different angles, thus increasing the effectiveness of destroying pathogens located on them, which are caught in the crossfire.

The ANNIHILATOR LUMENMAX system is focused on decontamination of indoor air and surfaces exposed to the probability of prior direct contact with people who are potential carriers of viruses and bacteria. The key is to decontaminate areas most exposed to contact with pathogens: work surfaces (0.85m above the floor), floors, public devices, tables, chairs, doors and more. However, it should be noted that a well-designed ANNIHILATOR LUMENMAX disinfection system provides for disinfection of even the highest parts of walls and the ceiling.

The time required for effective surface disinfection ranges from 10 minutes to 6 hours and is specified in detail in each individual simulation provided to the customer. The average time of the UVC disinfection process recommended by LUMENMAX is 3 hours. It should be remembered that the time of disinfection of air penetrated by UVC radiation is much shorter. The effectiveness of combating pathogens present in the air, as a result of direct and continuous ultraviolet radiation, is incomparably greater and more dynamic than the effectiveness of UV flow disinfection lamps and ozonators.


The operation and effectiveness of the ANNIHILATOR LUMENMAX luminaire have been tested in the laboratory of the Department of Biotechnology and Food Microbiology at the University of Life Sciences in Wrocław and in the testing laboratory of the Department of Biochemistry and Microbiology at the University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague on the following pathogens:

Bacterial virus P22 ATCC 97540

Bacterial virus FELIX01 DSM 18524

Gram negative bacteria Escherichia coli BAA 2469 (NDM)

Gram negative bacterium Salmonella typhimurium ATCC 140288

Gram positive bacterium Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 43300 (MRSA)

Gram positive bacterium Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 25923

Gram negative bacteria Eschrichia coli ATTC 25922

Mould Aspergillus brasiliensis ATCC 16404

Mould Penicillium chrysogenum ATCC 10106

 Mould Cladosporium sp. collection of DMB 

ssRNA enveloped virus SARS-CoV-2
( pseudo lentiviral particles in human
embryonic kidney cells HEK-293 )

Irradiating samples with the above pathogens at a concentration of 1-2 x 10^5 cfu/ml, at a distance of 2.5 meters (time from 20 minutes to 120 minutes), contributed to their reduction by 99.5% – 100%.
