What are your guidelines for proper barriers when handling any contaminated materials?
Select the type of personal protective equipment based on the degree of exposure anticipated. For handling contaminated items without risk of splashing, spilling, or spattering, heavy-duty gloves should be sufficient. For procedures in which contaminated droplets may be generated, mask, eye protection, and coverings such as gowns or lab coats should be worn.
