The laboratory is designed so that it can be easily
Laboratory furniture is sturdy, and spaces between
benches, cabinets, and equipment are accessible for cleaning.
Bench tops are impervious to water and resistant
to acids, alkalis, organic solvents, and moderate heat.
Each laboratory contains a sink for hand washing.
An eyewash facility is readily available.
All lab coats should be autoclaved in a terminal
biohazards bag for one hour before they are returned to the
laundry service. Lab coats used in permanent facilities
should be processed once a week.
