Safety in the facility
Use of biological and chemical substances cannot be avoided in the facility, but you must make sure you are not putting anyone using the facility in danger.
!!! If in doubt, ask before you start !!!
Microorganism can be used on analyzers if the sample is fixed before it is put on the instrument. Bacteria and Archaea can only be used if you have the staff’s permission before you start the instrument.
BSL2 or GMO2 material is to be transported according to the rules, which is a closed box clearly labeled with sticker, when you enter the facility. Excess materials that are not used in the facility must be disposed at your own laboratory. Waste from instruments must be disposed immediately after you have finish on the instrument, according to our rules if you work as do-it-yourself.
You must have provided us with your current GMO2 permission, before you can work in the facility, and you must have received training by us if you are to work with GMO2 material without full support.
Chemicals, such as paraformaldehyde and propidium iodine, that are routinely used in flow cytometry, can be used in the facility. Any other hazardous chemical must be cleared by the staff before it can enter the facility. All samples that contain hazardous chemical must be labeled clearly before it enters the facility.
Gloves are NOT to be worn when you operate key-pad for entry, button for exit, doorknobs, switches and the like. You can use gloves to handle a sample and when you dispose it.
Lack of proper conduct:
In case we find that the rules regarding biological or chemical materials are violated, lack of proper conduct with GMO2 material, or lack of valid permit for GMO2 work is discovered we will take immediate action. Dependent on the severity, the user may lose access to the facility and/or be reported to PI and biosafety officer.
