Resumen

BURGUET LAGO, Nancy  y  BRITO GODOY, Lázaro C. Biosafety measures adopted in Liorad Laboratories for handling biological materials. Rev Cubana Farm [online]. 2013, vol.47, n.1, pp.57-66. ISSN 0034-7515.

Introduction: working with microorganisms can lead to risks for both the staff at work and the environment. The existence of biosafety labs and implementation of measures in the handling of biological agents minimize the risk. Objetive: to evaluate biosecurity measures taken in handling biological materials at Liorad Laboratories. Methods: using a checklist and analysis of results through a SWOT Matrix to assess whether the design of the facility complies with biosafety or not. A documented system for handling of microorganisms and the preparation of a training plan for staff working in the laboratory of microbiological control. Results: the checklist identified as the main weakness the absence of a double corridor for the transfer of clean and dirty equipment, and as strength, meeting processing practices and have adequate biosafety equipment. The documentation system incorporated a section related to "Threat and Safety Measures" into the handling procedure. The training program developed allowed providing specific knowledge about this topic. Conclusion: it was concluded that the measures taken in the laboratory facilitated the overall fulfillment of the biosafety requirements for working with microorganisms.
