Biohazardous Wastes

Generated from biological source, infectious or biohazardous waste poses serious health risks to environment, humans and animals. Body parts, tissues, blood and body fluids and sharp wastes are examples of such biohazard waste materials that can be harmful to both environment and human health if disposed off without proper sterilization. In order to prevent their adverse effects, these wastes must be sterilized in autoclave before final disposal and biohazard bag is an important part of this process. Wastes are kept in biohazard bags and put in autoclave machine.

Autoclavable Biohazard Bags

Depending upon type of waste, biohazard wastes are collected in red, orange, yellow and clear plastic bags for further disposal process; these bags are called Autoclavable Biohazard bags. A good biohazard bag also called autoclave bag must have following features:

- Tear and burst proof under normal working conditions
- Qualify ASTMD1709-85 165 gram dart test
- Imprinted with biohazard symbol and word "Biohazard"
- Maximum temperature 141C (285F)
- Made of HDPE and LDPE plastics

How to Use Autoclave Bags

There are certain instructions that must follow while using autoclave bags. An autoclave bag is almost filled 2 / 3 of the total volume and closed loosely in order to provide smooth steam penetration. Apply sterilization indicator tape on it to verify if the sterilizer temperature has reached 121C. Always lift the bag from the top. It is advised to put autoclave bag in a plastic or stainless steel pan inside the sterilizer to collect any liquid that may drain out during autoclaving process. Sharp objects are avoided because they may puncture bags.
