Exclamation Agarose gel stuck on UV transilluminator



Hi everyone,
We have a problem with our gel documentation system, we used Vilber Lourmat gel documentation system, we did not know how it happened or who it did but someone forgot to agarose gel inside the machine, it dried and stuck to the UV plate. Now, we could not clean this mess . Does anybody know how we can clean dried and stuck agarose gel from the illuminator? We'd very appreciate if someone tell us

To melt the agarose gel again will probably spoil the illuminator. I guess try put water there to rehydrate it (probably soak it with wet tissue. unless if there is CAMERA, that is a bad idea, fungus may grow). Tell us how it goes.
