Cleaning method: Syphon pipette and tube rinser

Directions: 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.
