RE: [Histonet] cryostat decontamination ? CAP REGS

From:"Charles Scouten"

 Never decontaminate your crystat, push the button and let it decontaminate itself.  Than is, if you have the right kind of cyrostat.  See the link. 

If not, consider that alcohol, even 100% will not kill everything.  Formalin Vapor has been mentioned on the histonet, and Perascope.  We can supply Perascope.

How exactly do you decontaminate your cryostat?  We currently use 100% alcohol to wipe down all the surfaces and, for obvious reasons, cannot use anything that contains water.

Thanks for your help.
