The probe main module and battery module must be keep disassembled from each other,
and packaged separately for sterilization.

Carefully inspect the modules for cleanliness and dryness prior to packaging for Sterrad
processing. If visible soil is present, the item must be re-cleaned and dried prior to
sterilization. If moisture is present, dry the item thoroughly prior to sterilization.

polypropylene wrap or Tyvek® pouches can be used in the Sterrad system.
If you choose to wrap, secure the package with Sterrad SealSure® Chemical Indicator
Tape.

the battery's charge. (For a fully charged battery, it is advisable to recharge the battery if it
has been in a stored condition for over two months.)

marked with the expiration date of the battery's charge placed on the inside of the pouch.
If the pouch has an imprinted indicator strip you may alternatively write the date here.
