Notice to User: It is imperative that manufacturers and end-users understand that the electro-surgical instruments should be placed separately, without overlay, on autoclave trays. Potential damage caused by overlay in the autoclave will significantly reduce this and any other dielectric insulator’s ability to pass the 20 cycles of autoclave required by the AAMI.
