During the webinar it was mentioned that EtOH is a high risk chemical. We use EtOH to clean our benches in MLI all the time, should we shift to IPA? I did not hear about EtOH dangers before. Do have some data about this?

EtOH aerosols are potentially carcinogenic. Info can be found on BVF platform website, use of ethanol.

We use 70% EtOH as well but no “plantenspuit” bottles, to prevent aerosols.
