Using ChloraPrep™


Holding the barrel of the applicator, pinch the levers together, being careful not to touch the sponge. Pinch the lever to release the solution. You will hear a ‘pop’ as the ampoule breaks.


Starting at the incision site, gently press the applicator against the skin until the solution soaks the sponge. Apply using repeated up and down, back and forth strokes for at least 30 seconds, before working outwards to the periphery.


Leave the area to air dry completely before applying sterile drapes. Do not blot or wipe away. Discard the applicator after a single use.
