Disinfecting The Cryostat?

Apologies if this has been addressed before, but our internet has been taken away, so we no longer have access to archives. 

We are preparing for our upcoming CAP inspection.  Regarding the question about disinfection of the cryostat: Leica has told our lab manager that cleaning with 100% ethanol is adequate.  They also said that bleach should not be used and that their product "Cryofect" cannot be sold in the US.  Can you please tell us, does cleaning with 100% ethanol really qualify as "disinfecting"?  If you have different procedures or suggestions, we'd appreciate those as well.  Thanks in advance!
