Thank you. Are you asking your users to do all the cleaning? We thought that it would be dangerous to leave it up to them, so we are doing the cleaning ourselves once a day. Obviously this doesn’t protect all of the users, but only the ones who use the microscope right after the cleaning. We are not sure if ours is the right strategy.

Locally disinfecting wipes are sold out. I wonder if the kimwipes - ethanol would be OK on mice/ joysticks, etc. too.

Thanks this looks useful. You might also be interested in this discussion on the confocal microscopy list server.
