Instructions for use

Use disinfectants safely. Always read the label and product information before use. For professional use only. Read SDS before use.
gigasept® PAA is a ready to use product. gigasept® PAA is active immediately and stable over 7 days or 50 cycles of disinfection. The peracetic acid (PAA) concentration in solution can be tested using Schülke PAA test strips. In case of visible contamination, the bath should be renewed.
Always ensure the pre-cleaning of the endoscope and medical instruments and a complete wetting of the surfaces.
Immerse hollow objects in such a way that air escapes completely from the lumen.

A located ventilation over the bath is recommended. Cover the bath of gigasept® PAA as often as possible.
Do not dilute gigasept® PAA. Do not mix with other products (cleaner, disinfectants, etc.), particularly with aldehydes or derivates of halogens (e.g. glutaral, sodium hypochlorite, etc.). Do not use after expiry date.
