These areas include, but are not limited to:
Vertical laminar flow hood
Floor around chair and patient bed
Tabletop and/or cart
Floor in or outside preparation room

How often should ChemoGLO be used?
To meet regulatory compliance of USP 797, it is recommended that wipe tests be performed on the sample wipe areas every six months.
When will I get the results?
Results of the wipe studies are issued via email within three to four weeks from the date the ChemoGLO kit is received in our lab.
