Sheath fluid for CYAN ADP

I have been running my CyAn on DI water with no problems.  I was advised 
my Dako to use water over sheath fluid as it prevents salt crystals 
forming inside the machine.  I was also told that doing a weekly system 
clean with detergent - I use Dako Clean and Rinse solution, will stop 
any problems of running just water through the machine. 

I am assuming you only have the disposable boxes for the sheath fluid.	
My CyAn came with a reusable plastic cube (similar to the waste 
containers) with the connectors to attach it to the sheath/waste 
system.  You should be able to get them from Dako.

Let me know if you need any more info
