Can SnapIT Personal be sterilised?
Yes. The SnapIT Personal can be autoclaved up to 130° Celsius (266°F).
How do I tell if the SnapIT Personal is compatible with our ampoules?
SnapIT Personal comes in regular size only, which is compatible with most ampoules sized 1-15mL. However, compatibility depends on the ampoule’s geometry and the diameter of the ampoule lid. Ampoules of the same size can have a different geometry and ampoule lid diameter. The ampoule size in ml is used only as a guideline.
You can test compatibility by gently inserting the head of the ampoule into the SnapIT Personal. If it does not easily fit, please do not force the ampoule. SnapIT Lite and SnapIT Trolley editions are available in larger sizes.
How often do I need to clean SnapIT Personal?
We recommend cleaning your SnapIT regularly, to remove any glass residue that is left inside. Please check with your organisation’s cleaning routine for such devices.
If you open a “bad” ampoule and the glass shatters inside your SnapIT, clean the device immediately while wearing gloves and replace your O-Ring.
How do I clean the SnapIT Personal?
Disassemble the SnapIT by removing the keyring and O-Ring as per the instructions provided in the SnapIT Personal packaging. Water and most medical-grade cleaning agents can be used.

Can I use the SnapIT Personal to open non-scored glass ampoules?
No. The SnapIT is designed to safely open scored ampoules.
If the ampoule is scored on one side (as indicated by the dot), align the dot on the ampoule with the dot on the SnapIT Personal and snap away. If the ampoule is scored all the way around (as indicated by the band), you can align the SnapIT Personal as is comfortable for yourself and snap away.

Is the SnapIT latex free?
Yes. The SnapIT Personal body is made of durable anodised aluminium and the O-ring inside is made of silicone rubber. The spring and keyring are made from stainless steel.
