and the Environment.

Merck:/Freestyle/LE-Lab-Essentials/Cleaning-of-Lab-Equipment/LE-Cleaning-of-Lab-Equipment-08162013-120x120.jpgFor over 30 years, Merck’s Extran® cleaning agents have enabled proper scientific working procedures in laboratories and production facilities all over the world. Thanks to their thorough, residue-free cleaning, Extran® products ensure that everything that comes into contact with chemicals or biological substances is free of impurities – both before and after use.

Despite their exceptional cleaning strength, Extran® products use biodegradable ingredients that are free of toxins, so they are especially gentle on the environment and on the health of laboratory staff.

Features and Benefits

  • Reliable, residue-free cleaning 
  • Free from scents, dyestuffs, chlorine and other toxic ingredients 
  • All active ingredients are biodegradable 
  • The ideal all-purpose cleaner 
  • Validation support to prove the absence of surfacants after the cleaning process

Free of Residues, Toxins and Worries

Extran® cleans reliably, leaving no residues. Hence, it prevents contaminants from being transferred into your next analysis or test. For added certainty, Merck provides a practical and easy-to-use application aid to prove the absence of nonionic surfactant residues by means of a photometric test. This helps you prepare your own cleaning validation, thus saving you time and costs. 

Extran® not only supports your work, but also protects the health of laboratory staff. Our cleaning agents contain no chloride or other toxic ingredients, and avoid all scents and dyestuffs. Extran® products are also free of silicones and oxidants, and have no inhibitory effect on enzyme tests, such as NTA, α-amylase, LDH, GOT or on acid phosphatase. So for safe, secure laboratory cleaning, there’s no better choice Extran®.

The Green Way to Clean

At Merck, we believe that cleaning laboratory utensils shouldn’t mean polluting the planet. That’s why Extran® cleaning agents are produced from biodegradable active ingredients under strictly controlled conditions, and fulfill the highest standards in environmental protection. What’s more, Extran® almost completely eliminates the need for the toxic cleaning agent chromosulfuric acid, which is still commonly available on the market. This makes our Extran® cleansers both user-friendly and eco-friendly.

All Purpose Solutions for Automated or Manual Cleaning

Merck’s Extran® products are true all-purpose cleansers. Depending on the type of contamination and the material to be cleaned, Extran® cleaning agents offer the ideal solution for the cleaning of your laboratory utensils and production facilities. The range includes detergents for manual cleaning or automated cleaning in laboratory washing machines.
