Maintenance & Cleaning

serviceable parts. In the case of thermocycler failure or damage, please

The outside of the Franklin  thermocycler can be cleaned using 70% ethanol,
10% bleach or a disinfecting wipe (e.g. Lysol) solution. Do not spray or pour
solution directly onto the thermocycler when cleaning. Ensure no excess
liquid is used when cleaning as it may damage the unit.

If you do need to clean your heating wells because it's impacting performance,
