How is your lab managing its waste? Autoclaving is the most dependable procedure used by researchers for the destruction of biological waste material.
A proper autoclave preventive maintenance program along with a biological monitoring program are essential components of ensuring the reliability of an autoclave. Having neither of these in place could pose significant issues as waste moves from the lab to the landfill. The Office of Biosafety has placed autoclave guidance documents on their web page https://ovpr.uga.edu/biosafety/ for easy reference.
If you have any questions or need assistance with your autoclave or waste program, please contact the Office of Biosafety at email@example.com or 706.542.5300.
