Electrodes are not intended for use by the general public. They are limited to use by trained medical physicians only.

CARE AND HANDLING OF Chalgren ELECTRODES
Electrodes are precision instruments and are to be considered fragile when handling. Avoid abusive conditions when cleaning and storing for future use.
Clean electrodes as soon as possible after use. It is much more difficult to clean the electrode after fluids and pastes have dried hard. Avoid the use of abrasives when cleaning. Mild soap, warm water, and a soft cloth or small brush are best.
Do not re-use disposable electrodes. They are not intended to withstand the stresses of resterilization or re-use. Dispose of properly.
Reusable needle electrodes should be cleaned and sterilized before use. Needle tips should be checked for damage, sharpness and coating integrity. Discard when they become dull.
STERILIZATION OF Chalgren ELECTRODES
Electrodes should be cleaned prior to sterilization. Follow cleaning instructions above and inspect electrodes for damage or unacceptable wear.

Steam Autoclave electrodes at no more than 127 degrees C (260 degrees F) and for no more than 20 minutes per cycle. Some plastic parts cannot withstand higher temperatures nor prolonged cycle times. Destruction of the electrode could result. Lower autoclave temperatures are preferable in order to increase the life expectancy of the electrodes. In general, follow autoclave equipment manufacturer's recommendations for "rubber goods".

Gas Sterilization using Ethylene oxide is acceptable. Temperatures should be in the range of 54 degrees C (130 degrees F) to 60 degrees C (140 degrees F). Three days aeration time is common.

Liquid Disinfection such as Glutaraldehyde can be used for disinfection. This usually requires soaking the electrode for approximately ten minutes. However, complete sterilization requires ten to 24 hours of soaking. This could result in seepage of liquid into the wire lead or soldered connections.

Sterility is the responsibility of the user. Chalgren Enterprises makes no warranty and assumes no responsibility regarding the sterility of electrodes when performed by others.
