To disinfect the cassettes, use only disinfectants approved by Agfa (see list of Approved disinfectants). If you plan to use other disinfectants, approval of Agfa is needed before use, as most disinfectants can damage the cassette. UV disinfection is also not allowed.
For detailed information on how to apply disinfection, refer to the instructions for use that are delivered with the disinfectant.
Following disinfectants have been found compatible with the cassette material and can be used on the outer surface of the cassette:

USE OF PROTECTIVE PLASTIC ENVELOPE

Make sure that the plastic envelope is not wrinkled to avoid the creases showing in the image.
