To comply with the College of American Pathologists (CAP) laboratory accrediation inspection questionaire you need to check for detergent residues on your glassware to assure that good rinsing procedures are being used
To comply with the testing requirements, you can follow the procedures in the bulletin on the upper right hand corner of this web page by clicking on "CAP Residue Detection Methods." This bulletin outlines various choices to use a pH meter, Bromothymol Blue (BSP) dye pH indicator, and detergent detection test kits to perform the tests. Not all methods can be used for all cleaners. Only alkaline cleaners such as Alconox, Liquinox, and Solujet (to name a few) can be detected using BSP dye. Only alkaline or acidic cleaners can be detected using a pH meter. Neutral cleaners such as Luminox or Alcotabs must be detected using a detergent test kit.
