Intended Use

CIDEX OPA Solution is a high level disinfectant for reprocessing heat sensitive reusable semi-critical medical devices, for which sterilization is not feasible, and when used according to the Directions for Use. CIDEX OPA Solution is intended for use in manual (bucket and tray) systems made from polypropylene, acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS), polyethylene, glass-filled polypropylene and/or polycarbonate plastics. CIDEX OPA Solution may also be used in automated endoscope reprocessors according to the manufacturers instructions and should be monitored with CIDEX OPA Solution Test Strips.

The semi-critical medical devices reprocessed in CIDEX OPA Solution must first be cleaned according to a validated cleaning protocol or standard, such as the ASTM F 1518 “US Standard Practice for Cleaning and Disinfection of Flexible Fiberoptic and Video Endoscopes Used in the Examination of the Hollow Viscera.
