What should be done if there is an accidental spill in the cell chamber of the LuminUltra Photonmaster™?
Summary
Accidental spill in the cell chamber of the LuminUltra Photonmaster™
Answer
In case of accidental spills in the sample cell chamber:
  1. Remove the assay tube. Do not depress the shutter or reclose the lid.
  2. Keep the lid open and invert the Photonmaster™.
  3. Let the instrument sit on a flat, clean surface for one hour.
Be careful not to expose the PhotonMaster™ to bright light during this time or to dirty or dusty environments (e.g. outdoors).

The number one cause of spillage in the PhotonMaster™ is when assay tubes are left in the luminometer following testing. Make sure to remove any used assay tubes from the luminometer immediately upon completion of a test.

These instructions can also be found in the PhtonMaster™ Luminometer & Bluetooth® Module Product Instructions.This document can be found on LuminUltra's website.
