Peter:

Interesting!  I'm curious though, how was its use suggested?  Drop the flow
cell in a beaker with a tablet ala dentures, or disolve the tablet and run
it through the whole system like a sample?

With an old Epics V, I just popped off the cell and dropped it into a
beaker of 1%SDS in one of those water bath sonicators.  For the Elite, I
could not do this as I'd destroy the reflective surface, so I just ran the
SDS solution through it.
