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.
