選擇備有安全認證及安全的紫外線消毒器,有效協助你消毒個人物品,保障健康!

近日,消委會為市面上8款紫外光消毒器進行測試,Lexuma XGerm為其中一個測試樣本。測試集中在安全程度及殺菌消毒表現,結果顯示XGerm的整體表現屬中等。

首先在安全程度方面,XGerm獲得頗高的分數。XGerm的紫外線額定輸出功率為2W,為最低的輸出功率,即使使用者不小心接觸到UVC紫外線亦不會即時對人體造成嚴重傷害。報告中顯示,XGerm在盒蓋完全打開時,紫外線仍然開啓,但不會對人體造成損害。而XGerm的機身上,設有LED顯示燈,顯示消毒的進度,可以提示消費者消毒程序仍在進行中。另外,如果使用者希望中斷消毒程序,我們亦備有暫停按鈕,使用者可以直接暫停紫外光燈的運作,再打開盒蓋。我們亦在產品網頁及使用手冊内標示各種安全使用説明,保障消費者的安全。由於以上原因,我們在安全程度這方面獲得中等的評價。

此外,在殺菌消毒方面,XGerm的殺菌效能獲得最高評分。在10分鐘的殺菌時間内,XGerm能殺滅99.90%的金黃葡萄球菌及克雷伯氏肺炎菌。對比其他需要更長時間消毒或使用更大紫外線功率的產品,我們僅需要10分鐘便可以完成高效率的消毒,保障你的健康之餘更可以保護你個人物品的品質。

翻閲整份消委會的報告,我們發現XGerm與其他同類型消毒盒產品相比,其消毒時間是最快捷的。事實上,消毒的時間與消毒的效能會成正比。例如是樣本#1的消毒盒與XGerm均使用2W的紫外線燈,但報告顯示其殺菌效能表現較XGerm好。其實是樣本#1的消毒時間最長為30分鐘,才可以達至99.99%的殺菌效能。這樣代表,如果消費者希望可以有更厲害的殺菌效能,便需要更長時間照射。因此,我們可以發現,報告内的XGerm消毒表現並不代表實際上的消毒效能。

 

XGerm的每一項設計均顧及到消費者的使用習慣。我們把消毒時間控制在10分鐘内並有助殺滅99.9%的細菌,便可以讓你在短時間内完成消毒,繼續使用電話或其他物件。報告内亦提到紫外線功率越大,越可以在短時間内殺滅更多細菌。但高功率的紫外線會在極短時間内對人體更加有害,因此XGerm采用的是2W的紫外線燈,其低功率的特性即使使用時不小心將紫外線照射到自己的皮膚或眼睛,亦不會在即時造成傷害,保障使用者的安全。報告亦提及到,長時間使用UVC消毒物件有機會會造成物件脫色或使塑膠變色,因此XGerm的消毒時間能保護物件之餘,亦可以有效消毒。由於不是所有物件都適合使用酒精消毒,例如電話熒幕、皮革等。因此,使用UV紫外線消毒盒有助你消毒不同的物件。

縱觀整份報告,XGerm既經濟實惠,又擁有不俗的殺菌功能,是你最好的選擇。

Lexuma XGerm UV Sanitizer was chosen by the Hong Kong Consumer Council for assessing the degree of safety and also the sterilization performance among other sanitizing products available in the Hong Kong market. The result was reported in the recent Choice Magazine. XGerm received an overall moderate rating.

 

From the report of the Choice Magazine, the rating of XGerm in the aspect of safety is high. The ultraviolet radiation of XGerm is the lowest among all tested products. It is safe for using, while it also offers a sufficient disinfection result. The report also mentioned about the UV light of XGerm not being turned off automatically if the lid is opened during the sterilizing process. In fact, there's a series of LED indicators on XGerm showing the sterilization progress so that the customers are notified when will the sanitization process end. XGerm also offers a start/stop button which allows the consumers to control when to start / stop the sanitization process if needed. Furthermore, as part of the safety guide for all our products in our product listings and user manual, customers are warned and advised not to look at the UV light directly for ensuring the user's safety. We also offer 2 other higher end models (XGerm Pro & XGerm Ultra) which provide a auto-switch-off feature when the lid is open. The overall rating is moderate in this aspect.

 

In the section of sterilization performance, XGerm got a high rating in the sterilization efficiency. Even though the sanitization time is shorter and the ultraviolet radiation is lower than the other brands, the UV light of XGerm can kill 99.90% of bacteria attached on the object. The sanitization performance is quite efficient compared with other tested brands which require a much longer sanitizing time or a high radiation level.

 

From the Choice Magazine, we found that the some of the brands who got high rating, their sanitization time is relatively high compared with XGerm. Since we know that it is quite difficult for our customers to disinfect their phone with XGerm for 30 minutes, we keep the disinfection time in around 10 minutes. As the result, the sterilization performance may not able reach up to 99.99% comparing with the other models which the sterilization time is around 30 minutes. If you want to achieve a higher sanitization performance of XGerm, you may sanitize your daily items for more than once. To conclude, the report could provide a complete comparison since all elements are quite different among all tested units.

 

The design of XGerm is considered the using habits of our customers. The power of UV light is low which the harm to human is low too. UVC light can hurt our eyes and skin quickly when the UV light power is high. Moreover, we keep the sanitization time within 10 minutes which will not affect your usage of mobile phone and other items. Moreover, the sanitization time cannot be too long since the UV lights may damage and discolor the materials. Even though the video mentioned that using alcohol is more effective in disinfecting your daily items, some of the materials cannot be disinfected by alcohol such as leather, mobile phone, etc. For more information about the alcohol disinfection, you can visit our blog <Do you Think Alcohol is a Good Disinfectant?>

 

All in all, XGerm is a good choice for you with reasonable prices and acceptable sanitization performance comparing with the other brands mentioned in the Choice Magazine.

 

XGerm is the basic line product in our XGerm Series. If you want to get a advanced model, you may try the XGerm Pro or XGerm Ultra which consist of the auto turn-off function. When you try to open the lid during the sanitization process, the UV lights will turn-off automatically.

 

We have enhanced our product listing and the user manual. You can read the safety instruction in the product listing and the user manual before using.
