For the cleaning and disinfection of laboratory instruments various methods are applicable. Glass and plastic labware can be cleaned manually, in an immersion bath, or in a laboratory washing machine. To prevent baking-on the substance and damage to the labware by adhering chemical residues it is important to clean labware immediately after use at low temperatures, with brief soaking times, and at low alkalinity. Labware which has come into contact with infectious substances should be disinfected before cleaning and, if necessary, autoclaved. At Analytics-Shop.com you find a wide range of cleanser and disinfectants by numerous manufactures.

Methods of Cleaning

The wiping and scrubbing method is generally accepted and a popular cleaning method. However, when using cloths or sponges soaked in cleaning solutions, one can easily damage the surface of laboratory instruments. Ultrasonic baths are recommended for both glass and plastic labware, direct contact with the sonic membranes must be avoided though. For the immersion bath method, the instruments are soaked in cleaning solutions for 20-30 minutes. Then the labware is rinsed with tap water and distilled water. A more gentle method is machine cleaning with laboratory washing machines. The instruments are only exposed to the cleaner for short flushing periods. Further washing nets and wire baskets coated with plastic protect the labware against scratching and damage.
