Acid Washing RSA Vials has consequences

Reference Number: AA-03203 Created: 06/19/2018 02:20 PM Last Updated: 06/19/2018 02:23 PM

Q. What are the advantages and disadvantages of acid washing RSA Vials?

A. There is no reason to acid wash RSA vials. The main reason to acid wash vials is to reduce adsorption due to native silanols on the glass. Since RSA has virtually no silanols, this is not necessary. Some of the consequences to acid washing include time and materials to acid wash but also you run the risk of chloride and sodium residue left in the vials as well as other trace elements found in the reagents.
