From left to right: Sanibel tab electrodes, Ambu Neuroline720, and Sanibel Snap electrodes


To ensure the optimal use of your Sanibel disposable tab or snap electrodes, please observe the following:

  • Ensure that the skin is clean and dry before placing the electrode
    • It is recommended to use an alcohol wipe or similar to clean the skin
    • If your patient's skin is sweaty or very oily, an alternative electrode with stronger adhesion, Ambu Neuroline 720 (part number 8500060), is recommended for use
  • When applying electrodes to the skin, press down firmly on the entire electrode surface to improve adhesion
  • Use a small amount of conductive electrode gel to improve impedances, if required
  • Use pinch or button cables for snap electrodes and alligator cables for tab electrodes
  • Electrode adhesion time is limited to a maximum of 1 hour
  • Store unused electrodes in unopened pouches at temperatures 5°-27° C / 40°-80° F
  • Use before the expiry date printed on the pouch
