Maintenance and replacement:
Over time, the bristles of the cleaning brush can wear down or become damaged due to repeated use and contact with sample surfaces. If the bristles are visibly worn, frayed, or bent, it may be time to replace the brush to maintain effective cleaning performance.
If the cleaning brush becomes contaminated with residues, debris, or particles from previous samples, it can compromise the cleanliness of subsequent samples and affect the accuracy of the profiling results.
Finaly, the decision to change the cleaning brush for a GD profiler should be based on a combination of factors, including visual inspection, cleaning performance, sample requirements, and preventive maintenance practices. Regular monitoring and replacement of the cleaning brush as needed help ensure accurate and reliable profiling results and prolong the lifespan of the profiling equipment.
