Autoclave, disinfect and clean all labware and equipment to minimize biohazards, radioactivity or other potential chemical hazards. Wipe down all items with alcohol, diluted bleach or a commercial disinfectant. Duly note prior exposure to any biohazard, radioactive or chemical hazard so that Post Apple can apply the appropriate handling measures. Your safety officer must supply a decontamination certificate stating compliance with these measures.
