Li.LAC Microphone Disinfector Debuts

The rack-mounted encasement uses ultraviolet light to clean microphones

Designed by live event touring professionals, the Li.LAC Microphone Disinfector is a rack-mounted encasement that uses controlled exposure to ultraviolet light to kill bacteria and viruses on microphone surfaces, metal grilles and the windscreens underneath.

The Li.LAC Microphone Disinfector is available in a professional 19-inch 3U rackmount drawer-based format, so that it can be located in an equipment room or packed in a road case to travel with other equipment.

The departments of Biomedical Engineering and Medical Microbiology and Infection Prevention of the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) in the Netherlands have conducted scientific studies to evaluate the effectiveness of Li.LAC. A disinfection level of 99.99 percent for surface disinfection inside Li.LAC has been approved by Opsytec Dr. Gröbel GmbH, an independent, accredited laboratory and developer of industrial UV measurement technology. Li.LAC qualifies the 99.9 percent value, however, noting that the exact surface disinfection level varies with the type of virus or bacteria and the shape and surface of the microphone or other object being disinfected.

The unit can hold up to three hand-held microphones or several lavalier or headset microphones, headsets or beltpacks at a time, and a disinfection cycle takes 5 to 10 minutes. Much like a microwave oven, users close the drawer and press Start; the unit will not operate unless the drawer is fully closed and switches off as soon as the drawer is opened, ensuring operator safety.

The Li.LAC Microphone Disinfector is available in the United States for $1,599 from ISEMcon. Li.LAC lists additional resellers in Europe and Australia/New Zealand on its website.
