We buy Viraguard wipes and spray to decontaminate our cryostat.  It is a
virucide, tuberculocide, bactericide, and fungicide. We have been using it
for about 3 months.  The greatest thing about the product is, it's alcohols
based so it doesn't freeze.  You can decontaminate without turning off your

Greetings to all Histonetters, 


For CAP question ANP 12087 in regards to decontamination of the cryostat.
The note states that decontamination of the interior of cryostats may be
accomplished with 70% ethanol and in addition to this decontamination
process, the cryostat should be defrosted and decontaminated with a
tuberculocidal disinfectant at an interval appropriate for the institution.

I was wondering if other institutions would mind sharing what they use for
their tuberculocidal disinfectant and where to purchase it from.  Thanks for
any help or suggestions.
