Are there general maintenance and cleaning steps to follow for my SL1000 Portable Parallel Analyzer™ (PPA)?
Summary
Cleaning and maintenance of the SL1000 Portable Parallel Analyzer™ (PPA)
Answer
Yes, the Chemkey® slots, optical windows, barcode window, sample detector and trays can all be inspected and cleaned. Parts should be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and cotton tipped applicators. Care should be taken to swipe the cotton tipped applicator in one direction only, not back and forth. Water and a mild detergent can be used to clean the light shield and the optics access cover. Trays and windows should be visually inspected for clouding or buildup.
