Ensure where possible that all such materials are removed from the environment before beginning an AsepticSure Disinfection Cycle (see Table 3).
WARNING: Because the gas formula is highly oxidative, care must be taken that the room to be disinfected be appropriate and compatible.Any sensitive equipment that may be adversely affected by ozone or hydrogen peroxide should be removed from the room prior to the start of a disinfection cycle.
Contraindications and Material Compatibility
