the dangers around handling of equipment used to test for HIV
Jul 17, 2001

I manage a manufacturing department that refurbishes mass spectrometers. We have instruments returned that were used to test for bloodborne pathogens. I don't know where to begin to look for answers on how to handle these instruments in a safe way. Am I woried over nothing or should this be a concern? I would appreciate any suggestions or help you can give. Regards, Keith Annett

Response from Mr. Berg

Keith, I would start with the CDC. Try calling the hotline at 800-342-24437. They should be able to refer you to some guidelines.

Please help
