Moving "Contaminated" Equipment
Any equipment (e.g. refrigerators, freezers, incubators, centrifuges, Biological Safety Cabinets, HPLC, LSC and similar types of equipment) used in the manipulation, handling or storage of biohazardous or radioactive materials must be decontaminated before it can be moved. The EHS Biosafety must verify decontamination. Deface biohazard symbols and affix an "authorized to move" label on the equipment before it is moved. Call EHS (434-982-4911) or refer to the EHS website for detailed instructions.
