Common Disinfectant Chemical Compatibility with Stainless Steel
Not all disinfectants are appropriate for all microorganisms you'd like to kill, and the same goes for the surface they are applied to. Some chemicals can stain, pit, and/or rust your stainless steel surface of your Biosafety Cabinet (BSC) with repeated use, leaving a hard to clean work surface. Here's a handy chart of commonly used cleaners and their compatibility with 304 and 316 Stainless Steel. As a rule of thumb, all chemicals rated B-D if used, should be followed up with a sterile rinse of a Category A chemical such as sterile water or alcohol to protect your steel. The brand name cleaners referenced are commonly used in pharmacy applications.
