Shelf Life

The tool will not perish if left sealed for long periods of time, however it is recommended that you re-sterilise the tool after 2 years.

Sterilisation

Each tool is packed into a sterilisation pouch and heat treated for 20 minutes at 121°C (250°F) / 15 psi with Ethylene Oxide (EO). The special paper package allows for the EO gas to pass through the pores of the paper.

Tools can be re-sterilised by rinsing the tip in ethanol and autoclave at the above settings.

Cleaning

If you choose to use these punches repeatedly, the recommended cleaning procedure is as follows;

  • Clean tip between each sample extraction by coring blank filter paper over a cutting mat
  • Rinse tip with ethanol and/or spray with compressed air to remove dried artifacts
  • Rinse mat with ethanol after each sample extraction.
