We use it in our new cryostat. It is the recommended disinfectant for
the auto-disifecting feature. It uses a (cold-fog) process, unlike some
that actually heat up the solution. I am unsure if heated Sanosil is
effective or not. I have not noticed any resiual. If it does leave
residual, I would think that some 100% ROH would remove it.

Has anyone used sanosil as a disinfecting agent?  Could it be used to
disinfect a cryostat?  Is it possible to use its fogging method to make
sure that all the crevices within a cryostat are covered with
disinfectant.  Would sanosil affect future slides that are made in the
cryostat that has residual sanosil on its surfaces?


Inquiring minds want to know.
