Indications For Use

PREempt CS 20 is a sterilant and high level disinfectant for processing heat sensitive medical devices for which heat sterilization is not suitable, when used according to the directions for use. PREempt CS 20 is intended for use in manual (bucket & tray) systems made from polypropylene, acrylonitrile-butadienestyrene (ABS), polyethylene, polycarbonate plastics and 316 stainless steel. PREempt CS 20 is not intended for use on flexible endoscopes. PREempt CS 20 may not be suitable for all instruments. SEE NOTICE TO USER.

SEMI-CRITICAL DEVICES: High Level Disinfection is required for medical devices and instruments that come in contact with non-intact skin or mucous membranes during use but do not usually penetrate normally sterile areas of the body such as respiratory equipment and surgical mirrors.

CRITICAL DEVICES: Sterilization is required for medical devices and instruments that come in contact with sterile tissue and the blood stream and recirculating body fluids such as surgical instruments, implants and laparoscopes.

Disinfectant Use Directions
