What maintenance do I need to perform on the F-Scan64?

Sensors should always be disinfected with a 70% Isopropyl Alcohol solution after each use. To do this, slightly dampen a cloth with the alcohol solution, careful not to soak or saturate the cloth. Then wipe the sensor. 

Sensors should always be stored flat in either the system box or some other protective cover. Improper storage can adversely affect sensor life. 

Sensor Replacement/Disposal: Always dispose of sensors in accordance with Regional guidelines pertaining to medical biohazardous waste. 

A sensor can be reused either with different subjects after cleaning (requiring the same size sensor) or during a series of tests with the same subject. Sensor life is reduced if the sensor gets wrinkled or folded during use.
