Free White Paper Helps Biotech Laboratories Maintain a High Level of Infection Control
Date:12/19/2007

NEEDHAM, Mass., Dec. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- A free white paper to help biotechnology technicians and environmental health and safety (EH&S) personnel minimize the risk of infection in the laboratory is available for download at: http://www.eheinc.com/biosafety.htm.

Exposure to infectious biological agents presents serious potential health hazards to staff during many routine cell and tissue culture techniques used in biotechnology and pharmaceutical laboratories. This along with the development of new products from cells and tissues can present health risks to laboratory technicians that handle bacteria, viruses, biological organisms, and the like.

"Remaining in compliance with National Institutes of Health (NIH) recombinant DNA guidelines, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention's 'Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories' (BMBL) guidelines, and the Bloodborne Pathogens Standard is very demanding given the changing R&D efforts seen in many companies," said Jack McCarthy, President and co-founder of EH&E. "We've found the best approach to maintaining compliance and reducing risk is a periodic biosafety review."

The white paper, titled "Biosafety Review Key to Infection Control" and authored by EH&E, a Needham, Mass.-based environmental engineering and consulting firm, outlines a crucial biosafety review process that has been proven to maintain safety for biotechnology, pharmaceutical and research laboratory professionals.

The paper discusses and provides implementation strategies for the laboratory guidelines from leading government organizations, including:

-- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

-- National Institutes of Health

-- Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
