We recommend a processor technician to adjust the unit to its specified condition for optimum plate performance.
Plates can be handled before and after imaging in white light.
Imaged plates must be stored face to face with interleaf sheet between the plates.
Room Temperature conditions.
As with all CTP plates, it is recommended that both raw and imaged plates be handled with gloves and be stored with interleaving slip-sheets to prevent fingerprinting and scratching.
