Probably a silly question.
But for the salifert test kits when I am washing and drying the parts out do I need to worry about making sure the reagent syringe stays with its original reagent and the original test tube stays with the correct test?
My though process is possible traces of reagent causing cross contamination and messing with test results.

Or does it not matter at all.

After all my testing I plan on rinsing them in tap then soaking in rodi and air drying

If you rinse and air dry, it won’t matter. If you use the same syringe every time then you do not need to rinse it out.
