How can I deep-clean my Luminex MAGPIX?
The following protocol is from Luminex:
Stringent Soak Routine - MAGPIX
Please perform a self-test and follow the steps below:
1. Go to Maintenance >> Cmds & Routines and run a Clean command with 0.1 N NaOH. After the sample is taken up in the chamber (after the probe comes back up from acquiring the reagent), press the stop button in the software, and then turn off the instrument (for 20 minutes or less, push the soft switch under the blue light).
2. If soaking overnight or over the weekend, turn off the instrument using the soft switch and power switch (back of instrument) after reagent acquisition. Also, power down xPONENT and the PC (to avoid connection issues when re-booting).
3. When soaking is complete, turn the instrument on first, then the PC, and allow connection to the software.
4. Run the Maintenance >> Cmds & Routines >> *Daily Fluidics Prep routine.
5. Run System Initialization for calibration and verification.
