CLEANING & GENERAL CARE
Cleaning and disinfecting your Reader is important to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. The Reader has a mean use life of 3 years and has been validated for 156 cleaning and disinfection cycles (the equivalent of 1 cycle per week for 3 years).
You should clean and disinfect the Reader once a week. The Reader should also be cleaned and disinfected prior to being handled by any person providing testing assistance to the user.
Cleaning is the physical removal of organic soil from the Reader surfaces. Keeping the Reader clean helps ensure that it is working properly and that no dirt gets in the device. Cleaning allows for successful, subsequent disinfection.
Disinfection is a process that destroys pathogens, such as viruses and other microorganisms, on the Reader surfaces. Disinfecting the Reader helps ensure that no infection is passed on when you or others come in contact with the Reader.
