Drosophila Waste Drop-Off Procedure Update

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Due to a recent incident involving used fly food vials and bottles we would like to clarify the procedures for the drop off of fly food to be autoclaved.


We are asking all labs that bring bags of vials and/or bottles to be autoclaved to leave their bags on the green cart outside the media room during business hours.  However, if bags are dropped off after hours, please place them inside the media room glassware area (Room 237 Klamath Hall) – we will put the green cart inside the door for the bags to be placed on.


Also, as a reminder, autoclaving and disposal is included for all labs that are using the IMB Glassware services.  However, if you are an external lab, please write your index number and lab initials on the outside of the bag.


Thank you!
