Immediately after use you are advised to wipe the sample area with suitable cleaning wipes such as KimWipes. In case there is left over sample that has dried out, fibre optic cleaning sticks (Sticklers) can be used to remove excess impurities and provide a visibly clean area. It is also possible to immerse the DMV-Bio Cell in dH2O or a solution of biological washing detergent to remove particularly sticky solutions such as proteins.
The DMV-Bio Cell is resistant to chemicals and solvents. A possible minor delamination effect on the fixed window bond was observed with 10% phenol and the same effect is likely to be observed when using acetone. A leachate on window indicates precipitation of dissolved material.
