Instructions for use

Application methods

gigasept® instru AF is supplied as a concentrate and can be easily
diluted with water to obtain the concentrations indicated in the
tables.( Please refer to product information pdf at the Download section for more detailed instruction and dosage) Do not exceed contact times or application concentrations.

After contact time, rinse all disinfected items thoroughly with running water. Due to its cationic nature gigasept® instru AF should not be mixed with non-approved cleaners.


gigasept® instru AF has a lifetime of 7 days. In case of heavy soiling, early renewal of the solution is recommended.

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 and should be renewed at least twice a day.


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.

  • Bacteria (incl. M. terrae)
