"In terms of good science, it [glassware washing] is very important because there have been instances in my experience where experiments didn't work because glassware wasn't washed properly. If you carry through a solvent or an agent or a chemical from one experiment to the next, your expectations might be a little high if you think that it's going to work."

This video series provides guidance and instruction on how to control hazards associated with protocols and practices used in the modern biology laboratory. The series will make laboratory personnel aware of the intrinsic hazards associated with biomedical research and provide instruction in safe techniques that will enable workers to protect themselves from these hazards. The information will introduce new staff to good laboratory practices and provide meaningful technical review in safety for the more experienced laboratory worker.
