Always dispose of potentially biohazardous solutions according to your local, regional, or national waste-disposal guidelines.
DO NOT add bleach or acidic solutions directly to the liquids contained in Biomeme’s M1 Sample Prep cartridges. The BLB (Biomeme Lysis Buffers) and BPW (Biomeme Protein Wash) buffers contain guanidine salts, which can form highly reactive compounds when combined with sodium hypochlorite (a.k.a. liquid bleach).
If liquid containing these buffers is spilled, clean with suitable laboratory detergent and water, or 70% alcohol.
If the spilled liquid contains potentially infectious agents, clean the affected area multiple times with laboratory detergent and water. Then, clean the area with 1% (v/v) sodium hypochlorite.
You can find the MSDS sheets for our Sample Prep reagents in the MSDS section of our Product Document Library.
