to remove moisture from the surface of the probe.

Inspect the equipment for any damage such as crack, scratch or
deformation. Do not use it if any damage is found.

or transparent package made from Polyethylene film and Tyvek®,
and then place it into a tray. The tray should be also covered
with a sterile barrier.
Additionally the probe can be placed on plastic mesh wires
supplied for plasma sterilization and then packed as mentioned
The probe can be packed in a simple or double packing.
Please note that the size of a sterile barrier should be large
enough to be able to pack the equipment leaving sufficient space
to seal it completely.
A sterile barrier should be sealed by an appropriate sealing
machine and it is important to confirm that the package is sealed
completely. If the sealing is not complete, pack and reseal again.
