PCC-Pfree Detergent Concentrate

The eco-friendly formulation of Thermo Scientific PCC-54 Detergent.

PCC-Pfree Detergent Concentrate for phosphate-free cleaning of labware

Thermo Scientific PCC-Pfree Detergent Concentrate is a phosphate-free formulation of a surfactant-based cleaning agent for use on many laboratory surfaces and glassware; unlike RBS™ Detergent, it is available in Europe.

The cleaning detergent is an alkaline solution of anionic and nonionic surfactants. PCC-Pfree Detergent is strong enough to remove biological residues from plastic and glass, yet it is fully biodegradable and does not contain phosphates that can harm the environment. Use a 2% (v/v) solution for routine washing applications or soaking in a warm 20% solution to free particularly stubborn dry residues.

Applications include the removal of:

  • Coomassie blue dye from test tubes and quartz cuvettes
  • Blood or serum residue from glass or plastic beakers and flasks
  • Colored dyes from porcelain mortar and pestles
  • HIV virus from glassware, tabletops and flooring
  • Radioactive isotopes from benchtops and instrument surfaces

Product Details:

Complete removal of all impurities and contaminants from glassware is a necessity for most laboratory applications. For many years, caustic alcohol and chromic acid solutions were used for many substances that could not be cleaned from glassware by ordinary detergents. These strongly acidic or strongly basic cleaning products reduce the lifespan of glassware while exposing the user to potential harm. By contrast, Thermo Scientific PCC-54 and RBS 35™ Products are mildly basic, biodegradable, surfactant concentrates containing anionic and nonionic detergents. The surfactants clean by penetrating between contaminating substances and the surfaces to be cleaned. Glass, plastics, quartz, porcelain and ferrous metal apparatus can be cleaned safely and effectively in a 2% solution (v/v) of the concentrates or a 0.2% solution (w/v) of the solids. PCC-54 and RBS™ Cleaners remove both organic and inorganic materials and metal ions from laboratory equipment. The detergents rinse away completely, leaving no residue.
