HPLC Waste

Chemical hazardous waste that is generated from laboratory equipment, such as HPLC units, should be collected as follows: 

  • Collect in a compatible container
  • Label with Red Tag
  • Clearly identify constituents on Red Tag and indicate associated hazards
  • Place the container in a secondary containment bin with a green SAA sticker
  • Use a Quick Connect for 20L containers or larger in order to provide a closed container, or
  • Drill a fitted hole in 4L or smaller bottle cap for tubing, which must be a tight fit to provide a closed container
