Lab Clean Up

  1. Hand wash all scopes with cleaning spray and water gently and place on the towel on the sink
  2. Remove blades from handles with needle driver and place in the sharps containers (there are two containers on the floor)
  3. Put any other sharp items in the sharps containers.
  4. Cameras are to be hand washed. Gently spray with cleaner and brush lightly, put on large towels to dry. Make big loops on all cords when rolling them up so we won’t have damage
  5. Dish washer: turn on wait until it says ready. Run the washer for two cycles.
  6. All other items with cords (hand pieces, light source cable, foot pedals) may be washed in large loops in a separate dishwasher rack! Do not put anything on top of them (wash alone) so there is no damage.
  7. Lay out large white towels that are in the cupboards and place all washed items (other than scopes) on them. Do not stack anything on top of equipment.
  8. Do not wash power batteries. You may wipe them with Lysol wipes and leave on counter.
