Disposing of Waste

Biohazardous Waste

Solid biohazardous waste should be autoclaved in the kill autoclaves in the Biochemistry building at 121 degrees for an hour. Put autoclave tape over the biohazard symbol prior to autoclaving, or place the bag in a black trash bag prior to disposal. After autoclaving, allow the bag to cool and then dispose of it in the dumpster.

Using the Autoclave

Do not change the temperature on the autoclaves in the biochemistry building.

Autoclaving Liquids

Be sure to loosen caps before autoclaving liquids. Autoclave for 30 minutes on the liquid setting. After autoclaving, open the door and allow the liquids to cool slightly before moving the tray to prevent boiling over.

Autoclaving Glassware

Autoclave for 30 minutes on the gravity setting, then move to the dryer overnight.
