Place an individual vial in the blister-pak on a hard surface (label facing down). Gently apply pressure to the vial through the blister-pak to crush the inner ampoule, thereby releasing the Detachol®. Remove the individual vial using sterile technique. Peel back the lid. By gently squeezing the vial, apply Detachol® to the corner of the tape or dressing. Once the corner is saturated, carefully lift the tape. Continue squeezing the vial, while gently pulling the tape or dressing at the same time. Continue application until adhesive is completely removed. Clean the area with mild soap and water.
