Before using Actosed® PA, clean the instrument surfaces and canals with a suitable enzymatic cleaner. At this stage, we recommend that Actoclean® Perfect be used. After cleaning, rinse and dry the instruments. Manual usage; first fill the instrument bath with water (at room temperature), add the product at an appropriate amount, wait for 10-15 seconds to ensure homogeneous distribution. Make sure that all instruments and all canals come into contact with the solution during application. The lid of the disinfectant bath must be kept closed during use. The non-contaminated solution is stable for 7 days. The minimum effective concentration (MEC) should be checked with the test strips. If the color in test strips changes, the solution should be changed. After the recommended contact time, the medical devices should be rinsed with water of at least drinking water quality and dried.

 

Usage with the endoscope washing machine; always follow the device manufacturer’s instructions for use. The product can be used with automatic dosing by connecting to the disinfectant pump of endoscope washing machines.
