Working with chemicals can be very dangerous. Chemicals used at this bench are some of the most hazardous in the lab. To minimize the chance of accident, make sure you always:
*Wear personal protective equipment. Required PPE at this bench is an apron, face shield, and Trionic gloves.
*Know the properties and hazards of chemicals you are working with. If you don’t know, find out by reading about them (review Safety Data Sheet (SDS)) or ask staff.
*Plan the details of your process. Before you start working, plan what quantities of chemicals and sample carriers you will use. Plan how you will rinse your sample and what you will do with any waste generated. Make sure you know how the controllers work.
