Biology Department - Facilities


Our wet labs have eyewash and shower stations along with fume hoods, which re-circulate and trap hazards in filters rather than venting to the atmosphere. We also practice a strict hazardous wastes disposal protocol, which means we collect and destroy or recycle all wastes, rather than sending these to a waste water treatment plant with other sewerage.
