Always dispose of potentially biohazardous solutions according to your local, regional, or national waste-disposal guidelines.
DO NOT add bleach or acidic solutions directly to the liquids contained in Biomeme’s M1 Sample Prep cartridges. The BLB and BPW buffers contain guanidine salts, which can form highly reactive compounds when combined with bleach. If liquid containing these buffers is spilt, clean with a suitable laboratory detergent and water. If the spilt liquid contains potentially infectious agents, clean the affected area first with laboratory detergent and water, and then with 1% (v/v) sodium hypochlorite.
You can find the MSDS sheets for our Sample Prep reagents in the MSDS section of our Product Document Library.
