					  Sample Biological Material Standard Operating Procedure Template

Title or Type of Procedure: (One safety SOP can be used for more than one
experimental protocol if the materials/equipment being used and potential hazards and
protective measures are the same.)

P. I.                                         Lab Location:

Original Issue Date:                          Revision Date:

Prepared By:                                  Approval Signature:
                                              (if required by lab supervisor)

Procedural Methods and Materials: (Experiment specific details can be written on separate
sheet(s) so entire safety SOP does not need to be rewritten for each experiment or for each change to a
protocol as long as the materials/equipment being used and potential hazards and protective measures
are the same.)



Hazard Identification and Risk of Exposure to the Hazards: (organism or toxin and
procedure steps that may create a risk of exposure such as injecting animals, creating
aerosols, centrifugation, etc.)


Exposure Controls Specific to Above Risk of Exposure: (lab and procedure specific
personal protective equipment, biological safety cabinet, centrifuge secondary
containment, work practices, immunizations if needed, sharps injury prevention, etc.)


Waste Generated and Disposal Methods: (lab and procedure specific methods)
Can just customize the waste template,

Spill and Accident Response Procedures: (lab and procedure specific methods)
Can just customize the spill template,

Notes: (special record keeping such as inventories for toxins, reporting, training, etc.
that may be required)

References: (papers, Fact Sheets, BMBL, biological MSDS, etc.)
