Glassware Washing and Sterilization
In the Media Room we have two autoclaves dedicated to the steam sterilization of reagents and laboratory supplies.
For those laboratories doing cell culture work, we have an oven available to do high-heat sterilization.
We also have one large steam sterilizer dedicated to the sterilization of biohazardous waste.
- Collect solid biohazardous waste in an autoclavable biohazard bag, attach autoclave tape, and transport in a leak-proof secondary container.
- All sharps waste must be placed in red sharps containers marked with the biohazardous symbol. Use appropriate size sharps containers, and do not fill more than two-thirds full.
- Broken glassware contaminated with biohazardous material must be placed in a sharps container for proper disposal.
- Plastic pipettes and pipette tips contaminated with biohazardous material should be placed in a container that is easily autoclaved and does not allow the tips to puncture it. Attach autoclave tape to the container and transport in a leak-proof secondary container.
