In my experience labs used ultrasonic cleaning as standard pre-print procedure. I have no idea what the fluid involved was. They sometimes rewashed in an attempt to "swell the emulsion" to cure minor abrasions but that may have been voodoo to placate film editors?

And wetgate printing with (yet another?) fluid. I guess that's what you mean. That did work.
