Instructions for use
 
gigasept® instru AF is a concentrate and is diluted with cold water to produce the desired application concentration.
Dosage/ Application example: depending on the degree of effectiveness 1.5 % - 4 %. 1 litre of a 3 % working solution corresponds to 970 ml of water and 30 ml of gigasept® instru AF. Place instruments for reprocessing in the gigasept® instru AF solution immediately after use. Ensure complete covering of the surfaces, also of hollow instruments, and allow to take effect. Rinse all instruments thoroughly after cleaning, using water of at least drinking water quality, or preferably sterile distilled water or fully deionised water, to completely remove residues of the cleaning solution. Please follow the reprocessing recommendations of the instrument manufacturers. National regulations may require that cleaning and disinfection are carried out in two separate process steps. Not for final disinfection ofsemicritical and critical medical devices!
Standing time: The working solution can be used for 7 days,when used for the disinfection of previously cleaned instruments only. If the working solution is used for cleaning, national regulations may limit the timespan during which the solution may be used.
Ultrasonic cleaning: gigasept® instru AF is particularly suitable for use in ultrasonic devices. The chemical stability of the product is maintained in this process. Studies have shown that very good cleaning can be achieved with gigasept® instru AF after only a few seconds. Reference reports can be provided on request. Moreover, the stock solution should not be heated above 40 °C.

Special advice
 
Always read the label and product information before use.
If stock solutions and concentrates of gigasept® instru AF come into contact with other products (especially ones containing aldehyde), precipitations/ discolouration/ losses of efficacy are possible. Therefore, any mixture with other products is to be avoided. We therefore recommend rinsing all application aids and tubs thoroughly before using gigasept® instru AF for the first time.
Do not use gigasept® instru AF after the expiry date.
