The UW Biosafety Manual provides students, staff, and faculty at UW with information that is necessary to protect them and the surrounding community from possible hazards associated with the use of biohazardous agents and recombinant or synthetic DNA/RNA (recDNA) molecules.
All laboratories and facilities using biohazards should have an electronic or paper copy of the current Biosafety Manual available.
This manual is updated annually. Refer to the log of changes to review recent updates. If you have questions about the manual or its contents, please contact EH&S Biosafety at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206.221.7770.
