Product Profile

After the necessary contact time rinse carefully with sterile or filtered water before re-use. gigasept® PAA can be used in semi-automated endoscope reprocessors that are compatible with peracetic acid. Please check the compatibility of endoscopes and reprocessors with peracetic acid. Avoid the mixing of gigasept® PAA with other products (cleaner, disinfectants), particularly with aldehydes or derivates of halogens (e.g. glutaral, sodium hypochlorite, etc.). Do not dilute gigasept® PAA. Do not exceed the recommended contact time.

Use of gigasept® PAA test strips:
Dip test strip in the solution for 1 second. Shake off the excess liquid. Check the colour in the test zone after 10 seconds. gigasept® PAA test strips turns black or dark brown if the solution is effective.
