Cleaning and Storage - Versatile EEG

Proper procedure for cleaning, maintaining and storing your Versatile EEG system

Cleaning and Disinfecting

To clean the EEG cap, remove the electrodes, wiring and amplifier from the cap.  It is not necessary to remove the EEG sockets.  Use warm water with a few drops of soft detergent (we recommend Ivory).  Rinse with water and leave the cap on a flat surface to dry.

To disinfect the cap, we recommend Korsolex Plus disinfecting solution.  Dilute 30 ml of the solution per 1 liter of cold water and submerge the cap and sockets (without sensors, wiring or amplifier) for 15 minutes.  Rinse with water and leave the cap on a flat surface to dry.

Note:  Do not use aggressive cleaners or shampoo.  Do not use strong or abrasive disinfectants to clean the cap.  Never submerge the electrodes, wiring or amplifier in liquid.  Read disinfectant solution instructions carefully and confirm compatibility with the cap material.

Bitbrain does not recommend the use of steam-based sterilization methods. 


Storage

Keep the Versatile EEG system in its original packaging and in a dry place when not in use.

If the device will not be used for an extended period, we recommend discharging the battery to 40-50% capacity.  Storing the device for more than a week at 100% charge could cause permanent capacity loss. 

Recommended battery storage temperature range:
-10ºC to 35ºC (14ºF to 95ºF) for up to 1 month
-10ºC to 30ºC (14ºF to 86ºF) for up to 6 months
