• Biodegradable and readily disposable
• Free rinsing to give you reliable results and no interfering residues
• Use to pass your cleaning validation tests for lab accreditation and plant inspection approval
Used to clean
Pipettes and tubes with syphon pipette washers in hospitals, clinical, educational, R&D and industrial laboratories and cosmetics manufacturing. Authorized by USDA for use in federally inspected meat and poultry plants. Passes inhibitory residue test for water analysis. FDA certified.
Used to remove
Soil, grit, grime, grease, fats, oils, blood, tissue, salt deposits, particulates, chemicals, solvents and radioisotopes.
Corrosion inhibited formulation recommended for glass, metal, stainless steel, porcelain, ceramic, plastic, rubber and fiberglass. Can be used on soft metals such as aluminum, zinc and magnesium if rinsed promptly. Corrosion testing may be advisable.
Syphon pipette and tube rinser.
To wash pipettes in syphon-type washers: Submerge pipettes immediately after use in a 1% Alconox, Liquinox, or Tergazyme solution. Let soak in jar until enough pipettes accumulate to fill holder. Drop 2 Alcotabs into the rinser. Place the holder with pipettes into rinser. Alcotab will dissolve (in cold or warm water) and effervesce, producing a detergent solution that passes up and down through the bores and around the pipettes. Rinsing automatically follows after the tablet has dissolved. For analytical or tissue culture work, use distilled, deionized, or purified water for all or final rinse. For food contact surfaces, rinse with potable water.
Alcotabs consists primarily of a homogeneous blend of sodium linear alkylaryl sulfonate, phosphates, carbonate and excipient ingredients added to aid in tabletting. Alcotabs are anionic in nature.
Cleaning Validation Methods
Test a parameter of rinse water before and after rinsing the cleaned surface, or test the clean surface. No significant change in the parameter indicates no detectable residue. Parameters measured include: conductivity, UV, TOC, HPLC, sodium concentration, phosphorus concentration, anionic surfactant concentration using inexpensive detergent water testing kits, surface tension, and surface analysis.
