Biological Spill Kit
It's the obligation associated with Principal Investigator to make sure that a really thought-out spill kit is readily available and maintained for spills involving biological products. The following is a suggested starting place for a fundamental kit; your lab may prefer to customize this depending on the products and biological agents you utilize.
- Container for disinfectant**
- Paper towels or any other absorbent product
- Tongs, information, dust pan (for picking right up broken cup, etc.)
**If you will be utilizing bleach to clean up your spill, you have to prepare a brand new dilution of 1% NaOCl. Note the focus of NaOCl in addition to expiry time in your bleach stock. Keep a container in spill kit for preparing your working dilution. Take note that you should not keep real disinfectant within spill kit because they have an expiry day.
CL 2 labs will need biohazard bags or buckets for disposal of biohazardous waste. If placing any spill continues to be in biohazard bins, please mark container “Spill Cleanup” and suggest just what disinfectant it contains.
Instructions for cleaning up a spill concerning biological agents is posted near the spill system and stay obviously noticeable.
