I asked Nextwave the very same subject and this is what they said:

Clean the guide rods and lead screws with WD-40 and then lubricate with a dry teflon/silicone spray or graphite.
This is a link to what we suggest and sell for machine lubrication: ... ?itemid=40
Next Wave Automation tech support

One of the links you provided was WD40 with PTF which is Teflon (sort of), it should work.
