Cleaning Agents for the Laboratory

Our range of laboratory cleaning agents is designed to meet requirements for instrumentation and glassware in analysis laboratories. All our cleaning agents are formulated for use with ultrasonic intensive cleaning devices.

These products are also suitable for laboratory rinsing machines, as they are highly effective without foaming.

Elma Lab Clean A10

Elma Lab Clean A10 is used to clean laboratory instruments made from metal,* glass, ceramic or plastic. It is also ideal for cleaning glassware.

This mild alkaline detergent gently removes markers and labels, greases and oils, other mildly gummy residue, dust and lime soap deposits.

Elma Lab Clean A20sf

Elma Lab Clean A20sf is suitable for the surfactant-free cleaning of laboratory glass instruments, in particular calibrated glassware, such as pipettes, burettes, measuring cylinders.

It also cleans lab instruments for volumetric analysis made from stainless steel,* glass, ceramic or plastic.

*Elma Lab Clean A20sf is not suitable for use with instruments made from aluminium, magnesium or light alloys.
 **Caution: Using different types of metal in the same cleaning bath carries the risk of tarnishing!

Elma Lab Clean A25

Elma Lab Clean A25 is an alkaline cleaning agent that is ideal for use with labware made from metal*, glass, ceramic or plastic and for cleaning glassware. It removes markers and labels, greases from ground-glass joints, gummy and tar residues and lime soap deposits, and it helps to prevent their redeposition. In addition, it removes biological contaminants such as blood and saliva as well as protein, bone or tissue residues.

*Always test the compatibility of Elma Lab Clean A25 with instruments made from aluminium, magnesium, light alloys or glass that is unstable in the presence of alkali before use.

Elma Lab Clean N10

Elma Lab Clean N10 is a pH-neutral cleaning agent that is ideal for use with labware made from metal* including aluminium and light alloys, glass, ceramic or plastic. It is also a great choice for cleaning glassware. It gently removes emulsions and lime soap deposits and prevents their redeposition.

*Always test the compatibility of Elma Lab Clean N10 with magnesium alloys before use.

Elma Lab Clean S10

It also removes industrial aqueous coolants and light mineral grease and oils.

*Always test the compatibility of Elma Lab Clean S10 with magnesium alloys and acid-sensitive glassware before use.

Elma Lab Clean S20

Elma Lab Clean S20 is designed for periodical acid-based cleaning of labware made from metal.* Rusted instruments need to be cleaned separately using Elma Lab Clean S20.** Elma Lab Clean S20 removes brown/grey deposits left by disinfectants and cleaning agents after autoclaving as well as autoclaved blood spots. It easily removes lime soap and lime soap deposits (general Ca- or Mg-bound contaminants), metal oxides (rust) and other mineral contaminants as well as fluxes.

*Always test the compatibility of Elma Lab Clean S20 with instruments made from aluminium, magnesium, light alloys or acid-sensitive glass before use.
