More Information

  • Directions for Use:
    Clean and dry skin for at least 2 1/2 inches (5 cm) around the wound making sure to remove skin oil or exudate
    - For best results, use a sponge moistened with alcohol or saline followed by a firm wipe with a dry sponge
    - Using aseptic technique, peel back lid and deliver vial
    - Gently squeeze vial to crush inner ampule, thereby releasing compound benzoin tincture
    - Do not roll crushed ampule between fingers as this may cause glass to penetrate outer vial

    - Begin at the wound edges and work outward. Avoid inadvertent contact with wound
    - Allow tincture to dry before applying Steri-Strip skin closures (approximately 30-45 seconds)
