How do I clean my NIOX VERO®?

NIOX VERO® makes measuring airway inflammation safe and easy, with built-in mechanisms to ensure a successful and reliable result every time. It’s made of durable materials that feel safe in the patient’s hand and look smart on the desk. To keep the device in perfect condition, just follow a basic cleaning routine:

  • NIOX VERO® and its attachments should be wiped with a cloth dampened with water or a mild cleaning solution
  • Don’t use compressed or canned air and please be careful not to apply any alcohol-based cleaning solutions. Alcohol can cause permanent damage and can potentially result in incorrect FeNO values

Can I clean the device with wipes?
Your NIOX VERO® can be cleaned with wipes but they must be water-based or made with a solution that doesn’t contain alcohol. Some of the most common approved active ingredients include:

  • Sodium Hypochlorite <1.5%
  • Quaternary Ammonium Compounds <5%
  • Biguanides <1%
  • Isothiazolinones 0.01%
  • Pentapotassium bis(peroxymonosulphate)
  • bis(sulphate) 40-55%
  • Malic acid 20-25%
  • Sulphamidic acid 4-6%
  • Sodium dodecylbenzenesulfonate 3-5%
  • Dipotassium peroxodisulphate <1.56%
  • Glucoprotamine 25-30%
  • Diethylene glycol mono-butyl ether 10-20%
  • Hydrogen Peroxide <2.5%
  • Glycolic Acid <2.5%

How do I guard against the spread of COVID-19 when using the device?
Sodium hypochlorite 0.5-0.65% is recommended against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19 virus) and can be used to clean the NIOX VERO®. Benzalkonium chloride 0.05-0.2% is also an effective cleaning agent against coronaviruses and is suitable for use on your NIOX VERO®.

Can I clean the patient filters?
No. Patient filters are for single use only. You can use the same filter for the same patient if you need to restart a test during a single visit. However, please use a new filter for each individual patient to avoid cross-contamination or infection.
