The replacement product must be a product supplied by Dextronix. g. All claims must be submitted in writing with required data to “Dextronix – Attention: Customer Service”. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF ANY OTHER WARRANTY EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE, WHICH ARE SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMED, EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. DEXTRONIX, INC. SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES CAUSED BY DEVICE MALFUNCTION, FAILURE, OR DEFECT, WHETHER THE CLAIM IS BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE.
18. LIMITED WARRANTY AND DISCLAIMER FOR DEXTRONIX HEART MONITOR DEVICES ONLY:

Except as expressly provided by this limited warranty, Dextronix is not responsible for any direct, incidental, or consequential damages based on any defect, failure, or malfunction of its products whether the claim is based on warranty, contract, tort, or otherwise. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation or consequential damages and so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply
to you. Except as expressly provided by the limited warranty, Dextronix, Inc. makes no warranty, express or implied, including but not limited to, any implied warranty or fitness for a particular purpose.
19. WARRANTY DISCLAIMER FOR ALL OTHER DEXTRONIX PRODUCTS EXCEPT RENTAL/LEASE/DEMO PRODUCTS (PLEASE SEE SEPARATE TERMS FOR RENTAL/ LEASE / DEMO PRODUCTS): FOR ALL OTHER PRODUCTS, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, WARRANTIES ARE HEREBY DISCLAIMED INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

removal or replacement of a Dextronix product.
20. PRODUCT ANALYSIS, REMEDIAL ACTION: Dextronix is not obliged but may decide on its own discretion to analyze any product returned from the field or found otherwise which is potentially non-conforming with the original product specification or is malfunctioning or defective. It also will be Dextronix’s exclusive right to issue and communicate remedial actions on the product whenever required by applicable law.
21. STORAGE AND HANDLING: Our implantable products are supplied sterile and non-pyrogenic. They must be stored in a room with controlled climate or in a cool, dark and dry place. Do not use product when its sterile packaging is damaged. Do not expose to organic solvents or fumes.
22. GENERAL WARNING: All Dextronix products are –for veterinary use only- in companion animals (pets). They are not intended for human use and Dextronix refuses any responsibility for misuse or misbranding of its implantable and non-implantable products. All Dextronix implantable products are for single use only and Dextronix refuses any responsibility for the consequences of re-use and/or re-sterilization of its implantable products. In addition, Dextronix’s implantable products are implanted in an extremely hostile environment of the pet/ companion animal body. The implanted products may fail to function for a variety of causes not limited to medical complications, body rejection phenomenon, allergic reaction, fibrotic tissue, mechanical fatigue, and wear out due to mechanical induced stress during usage. Implantable pacing leads and stents may fail by breakage, breach of manufacture, and testing prior to sale. Implantable products may be damaged before, during, or after insertion by improper handling, placement, other intervening acts and/or wear and tear during use. Consequently, no representation is made that insertion by improper handling or cessation of function of the product will not occur or that the body will not react adversely to the implantation of implantable products or that medical complications (including perforation of the heart or fracture of leads or stents will not follow the implantation) or that the product will, in all cases, restore adequate bodily functions.
23. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTIES: To its knowledge Dextronix does not infringe any patent or copyright or misappropriate any trade secret or other proprietary right of any other person, firm, corporation or other entity with regard to its products for veterinary application.
