FACS and yeast

We run some type of bleach solution through the FACs after scanning.  We 
usually only used fixed cells, but I imagine bleach will kill live cells 
though.  I also agree with the previous posting about the fact that 
laboratory yeast strains will not grow in mammalian tissue culture 
media.  Try it, they won't grow!  "Yeast" contamination in cell cultures 
does not come from commonly used lab strains.
Sincerely,
