Safety and protection in the laboratory

Dear Sir or Madam,

Research and diagnostics are essential for human health. But scientists who work with cell cultures, tissues, blood or infectious materials in the laboratory are exposed to health risks every day. Laboratory safety precautions help to protect personnel, as well as to disinfect, sterilize and safely remove medical disposables. Discover more about safe work in the laboratory in our Topic of the Month.

Happy Easter and stay healthy!
