Summary
Procedure for cleaning sample cells
Answer
Most laboratory detergents can be used at recommended concentrations. Neutral detergents, such as Liquinox, are safer when regular cleaning is required. Cleaning times are reduced by increasing the temperature or by using an ultra-sonic bath. Finish by rinsing a few times with DI water and allow to air dry. Individual procedures may require special cleaning methods. When using a brush to clean cells, take extra care to avoid scratching the inner surfaces of the cells.
