Applications of Caustic Soda in the Lab

Caustic soda (sodium hydroxide, NaOH) is not only widely used in industrial settings and household applications as a cleaning agent, but it’s also the preferred compound of many researchers to effectively and safely sanitize their lab equipment. This can be applied to standard test tubes and beakers, as well as more delicate devices, such as chromatography systems. In this case, it’s the obvious option as it’s cheap but reliable, and in addition, it can easily be removed before the subsequent use.

Caustic soda is ideal for this purpose, as it can eliminate lipids, proteins and nuclei acids, as well as most virus, bacteria and toxins present in the equipment. The actual concentration used depends on the type of equipment used and most likely residues present, but usually a solution ranging from 0.1M to 1M is advisable. However, it’s important to check whether the equipment is compatible with the use of caustic soda and what is maximum concentration/exposure time that should be used.


Benefits of Using Caustic Soda in the Lab

Major advantages of using caustic soda include:

  • Inexpensive
  • Applicable to many different devices
  • Effective at eliminating lipids, proteins and nuclei acids
  • Long-term storage
  • Antibacterial and antiviral properties
  • Can be used to pack and store unused equipment
  • Removal easy (which can also be checked by simply pH and conductivity measurements before using the equipment)
  • Easy disposal, which requires no special measures
