Shelf-life: the MCP shall be stored in container provided by the manufacturer during 6 months, in vacuum (1.33×10-3Pa) during 1 year or 15 years as a part of an image intensifier tube. The shelf-life is to be calculated from the acceptance date of manufacturer’s quality inspection, and in a case of reacceptance from the reacceptance date.
