This course focus on the principle of effective waste management and decontamination procedures in biomedical laboratories involve segregating waste types, using proper disposal techniques, and employing decontamination methods. This ensures safety, minimizes environmental impact, and complies with regulations. Key practices include proper waste segregation, autoclaving of biohazardous materials, use of chemical disinfectants, and training of laboratory personnel. Adherence to these procedures promotes a safe and efficient laboratory environment.
