Waste handling (containment)

Inevitably, working with animals generates waste material. In many cases, this waste material is biohazardous. This makes it essential to have a waste handling system that is both effective and efficient.

Preventing biohazardous animal waste material from contaminating the living environment of the animals, the working environment for the staff, and the external environment is of utmost importance. In addition to assuring the wellbeing of the animals and integrity of test results, a good waste handling system will mean personal safety for your technicians and scientists.

Getinge offers suitable cleaning, biodecontamination and sterilization systems to safely and efficiently handle waste materials according to their classifications and bio-safety levels. We can also provide support and guidance regarding your facility layout and material handling to minimize the risk of (cross-) contamination in your working environment.
