In Europe and Asia we slowly receive encouraging messages that research in universities and hospitals will be picked up again after the COVID-19 outbreak. We receive a lot of questions regarding the cleaning instructions of devices, electrodes and caps.
From several customers and researchers around the world we receive questions on how to clean the amplifiers, cables and caps in a proper way so any potential spread of the Corona virus can be prevented. We understand that these guidelines and constraints are part of the ‘release plans’ to be able to pick up your research projects again and be allowed to measure on healthy subjects or patient groups.
We have written a blog about cleaning your devices and what disinfectants are allowed to use. Generally speaking, cleaning the device and patient accessories is possible when done with caution. We have tested a few disinfectants that can be used to clean out the amplifiers and parts that contact the patient. We hope this helps you in getting clearance to restart your work and you will be allowed to start measuring with our systems again.
Please be always aware that you should prevent at all times that water or disinfectants can enter the device as it may damage the electronics. Do not use sprays on the device itself, but use a damp cloth or paper towel is enough.
You can also find cleaning instructions for your device in the User Manual. These are available on the Support page under ‘Downloads’. Follow the link here.
If you have questions about cleaning your systems or have additional guidelines in your university or hospital, do not hesitate to contact us for additional guidance or advice.
The combination of high-quality amplifier systems and active shielding technology gives you the best possible data quality and the best possible outcomes of your research.
