The Clinical Lab is asking about disposing of CSF's from CJD or
suspected CJD cases. They are saying to incinerate the left over
specimen. I have a procedure for handling tissue, but not fluids. My
procedure says to incinerate paraffin scraps and unused sections (this
is after the tissue has been through formalin for 2-7 days and in formic
acid for 1 hour). Additionally, we are supposed to mix processing and
staining soloutions with equal parts bleach before disposal.
Does anyone have a procedure for discarding of CSF's or other fluids?
