Sterilization and Disinfection of VITA® Shade Guides

Autoclave Instructions:

The VITA Shade Guides can be autoclaved in a steam or chemiclave to a maximum temperature of 284ºF (140ºC). Use of a dry autoclave will damage the Shade Guides and will void any warranty either expressed or implied. Follow the autoclave manufacturer instructions for autoclave cycle times.

NOTE: The base of Classical Shade Guides with the raised lettering of the word “Vitapan” cannot withstand autoclave. These holders must be treated with surface disinfectants only!

Surface Disinfection:

Follow the Disinfectant Manufacturers instructions for proper use of surface disinfectants of VITA Shade Guides. Disinfectants with Phenols, Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide, Iodine, Methyl Ethyl Ketone, or Chloroform have been shown to damage the Shade Guides and should be avoided when possible.
