All users must be up to date with lab safety training. Use of unfixed human samples or samples classified as BSL-2 in the flow core require approval. Radioactive samples are not allowed in our facility under any circumstances.
Correct PPE must be worn and proper containment procedures must be practiced at all times in this location. Specifically:
-All BSL-2 samples must be transported to this location in a secondary, waterproof container with a secure lid (such as a tupperware, styroform is not acceptable).-Closed toe shoes are required in this location at all times.-The cytometer workstations are considered lab space, including the computers used to collect data. Therefore, gloves should be used when operating the keyboard and mouse.-Absolutely no laboratory materials (samples, gloves, labcoats, etc) are allowed in the staff office, as it is a "clean area". Please avoid touching door handles, light-switches, elevator buttons, etc. with gloves.
