PT300+80% ethanol

I'm soon to go into a biological research building to test&tag laboratories.
As part of my induction the building manager said, "You come in through this door, put labcoat on. At this sink there will always be a spray bottle of 80% ethanol with which to spray your equipment, then wipe off with paper towel.
Spray and wipe again when you leave."
I expect to be doing this twice daily for a couple of weeks.
Having often read the admonition to NEVER clean plastics with organic solvents I wonder about the likely surviveability of my PrimeTest in general and its screen in particular.

Ideas?

Hi verstapp

I know the product is not affected by isopropol alcholol but not sure about ethanol. I'll need to make some enquiries.
