Q: We currently use Alconox to clean glassware at our facility. Do you have any studies showing potential Alconox detergent residue interaction with organic ketones and/or other organic solvents?
The short answer is that Alconox detergent, like all Alconox Inc. detergent products, are designed to be completely free-rinsing. Therefore leaving no residues to speak of. However, incomplete rinsing can of course happen. So this verification is important.

Q: I read an article in a trade publication about removing coffin wax from bone using an aqueous degreaser from your company. I can’t really find what product exactly they used. A: Coffin wax or adipocere can also be known as corpse wax, grave wax or mortuary wax, is a wax-like organic substance formed by the anaerobic bacterial hydrolysis of fat in tissue, such as body fat in corpses.
Q. We need to remove perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctyl sulfonate (PFOS) from laboratory glassware and stainless steel. Since they are inorganic residues, we’re using acidic cleaners, but are not finding them as effective as we expected. Any recommendations?
A. PFOS and PFOA are polar, anionic surfactants. They will best be cleaned by a high-emulsifying, anionic-surfactant-containing cleaner that can make mixed micelles to efficiently remove these residues from surfaces….
