Help and advice on facility management during current virus conditions
Join discussion on how to operate safely and help reduce the spread of Covid-19
The confocal listserve (web address to subscribe) has highlighted some useful tips for managing your facility during the current virus conditions. Please see http://confocal-microscopy-list.588098.n2.nabble.com/COVID19-Instrument-cleaning-protocols-td7590586.html (link contains third-party advertising)
A discussion within the German BioImaging community has also led to a very useful document on managing through these challenging times (https://www.gerbi-gmb.de/Corona)
The Flow Cytometry Listserve (http://www.cyto.purdue.edu/hmarchiv/index.htm) are also discussing how best to operate and how to safely shutdown the cytometers for a prolonged period. This is especially important to maintain sample and sheath lines and minimise contaminants.
We will keep you posted with any other useful forums and documents that are released by the communities around the world and thank all those contributing to these discussions.
