Product Focus: Laboratory Washers

Choosing the right lab washer depends entirely on what needs to be cleaned and why. Both the labware and the washer features come into play, and these change with advances in technology.

New labware and techniques drive the need for new cleaning regimens

“Today, more of the labware being used is difficult to wash,” says Odette Nolan, product manager at Labconco (Kansas City, MO). “Many scientists are also moving toward reusable supplies, which are greener and cost less.” Doing that, though, might require more throughput in a lab washer. Likewise, the labware’s composition changes. For instance, Paul Miller, national sales manager for Miele Professional (Princeton, NJ), says, “With the increasing use of plastics, we adjusted our wash cycle to accommodate that. You can’t use as high a heat to clean it, so you add a better detergent.”

Help your Colleagues

Plenty of discussions are happening on LabWrench all the time. We have many questions come in daily from users that are seeking advice from fellow users and lab professionals on LabWrench. Can you help any of these users find the answers they are looking for?

Beckman Coulter Z2 - Metering Section Error
It has been making a squealing noise, - it now has stopped working and displays an error message indicating a problem with the metering section, the metering pump requires significant effort to make it move from its current position (in either direction). I am familiar with the principal, but the pump mystifies me. Advise this member.

Rigaku MiniFlex - CW Alarm
The CW (cooling water) alarm comes on in about 1 to 2 minutes. The tube strainer is clean and I am absolutely certain 4 liters per minute is flowing. Is there anyone out there with experience replacing the flow switch? Advise this member.

EPPENDORF 5415R - Error 20 & Error 21
Our 5415R centrifuge displays Error 20 and Error 21. Contacting the eppi tech rep says Error 20 refers to an issue with the temperature sensor, while Error 21 refers to an issue with the condenser sensor. Anyone familiar with resolving/fixing these one or both of these issues? Anyone also have a service manual for this line of centrifuges? Advise this member.

Questions from the Vault

We have so many questions filling our forums that sometimes questions can be missed and go without answers. Can you help us provide answers for these users with unanswered questions?

Parr Instrument Company Model 6400 - Check Valve
The check valve keeps coming out after the setup mode. This happens during the std and sample runs as well. It appears that this is causing the samples to misfire or causing a loss of ignition. What can cause this event? Advise this member.

Agilent Technologies 6890 - No string/Auto mode failed
What do I do if message comes out that "no string" and "auto mode failed"? It looks like the communication between PC and GC has failed. Advise this member.

ZEISS Axio Scope.A1 - Dim light
We have been using mercury 100 watt lamps for analyzing our FISH probes and now have new scopes from Zeiss with your PhotoFluor LM-75 metal-halide lamp. We still have one old system. When we compare the same slide/probe from one to the other, the mercury 100 watt is significantly brighter and easier to analyze. Do you any suggestions? Advise this member.
