Discarding Inoperable Instrumentation

Discarding Inoperable Instrumentation

Operational- When discarding lab instrumentation that becomes inoperable you must take into account local disposal requirements for biohazard materials. The analyzer must be decontaminated per the manufacturers guidelines and any sharp objects or parts removed. Once this step has been completed, contact your local biohazard waste disposal facility to see if the instrument can be placed in a dumpster or if there are other disposal requirements.
