I tried running an experiment a few days ago and had an issue with my vials overflowing. I wasn’t there to actually see it happening but I assume it happened because efflux outlet failed somehow. All of the pumps are still working so I’m thinking my efflux connection isn’t great and I’m pulling up air instead of liquid.
I don’t think too much liquid overflowed, but it’s kind of hard to tell. All of my pumps still work (which are underneath the sleeves) and I didn’t see any liquid pooling.
Are there any suggestions for what I need to do to clean up the smart sleeve? I tried shoving a paper towel down there but it didn’t seem very effective. Do I need to disassemble it to clean it?
Can I simply verify all of the components work (LEDs turn on, OD and temperature sensors read reasonable values)? Or is there something else I should do to make sure I didn’t break the smart sleeves?
