Dose cards are designed to provide a visual indication of applied UV-C energy during a disinfection cycle and are not intended to be used as a substitute for microbiological verification of disinfection. Store at room temperature and away from direct sunlight. Do not reuse.
One thing to note is that the dose cards are imprecise. They are meant to be used as a directional indicator and to verify that you have a correct dose of UV-C. They shouldn't be used to compare efficacy of one product vs another.
Instructions for use:
1. Remove adhesive backing and place the UV-C Dosimeter on or adjacent to any vertical surface or equipment that will be disinfected with Arc. If they are laying down flat on a tabletop, the ink won't react and it will give a false low reading.
2. Make sure the yellow indicator faces toward the Arc.
3. After the disinfection cycle is complete, make exposure readings immediately or within 24 hours.
4. Retain or discard exposed dosimeters in accordance with site requirements.
