Disposal of Plastic Serological Pipettes

All plastic pipettes, regardless of contamination status should be segregated from other lab wastes because they readily puncture waste and trash bags which increases spill potential. Waste pipettes that ARE contaminated with body fluids, cell debris, or other materials that may contain infectious agents or recombinant DNA molecules must be segregated, stored, treated and disposed of as biohazardous waste. There are various ways that this can be achieved as long as the basic principles of biohazardous waste handling and disposal are followed. Pipette safe keepers are alternate methods to dispose serological pipettes. Serological pipettes could be collected in them, sealed, autoclaved and disposed in regulated medical waste boxes. Pipette washers or 5-gallon buckets may be lined with two autoclaveable biohazard bags and used for pipette segregation.

Serological Pipettes and other unclassified items

Serological Pipettes and other unclassified items: Laboratory glass and plastic waste items that are not considered sharps can puncture regular waste bags and injure our janitorial staff. Laboratory glass and plastic waste includes the following items: micropipette tips, serological pipettes, test tubes swabs/sticks. If these items have not been in contact with materials that contain infectious agents, including human and non-human primate-derived material, or recombinant/synthetic nucleic acid molecules. If these items have been in contact with potentially infectious materials, such as body fluids, cell debris, or other materials that may contain infectious agents or recombinant /synthetic nucleic acid molecules there are several acceptable practices for collection, treatment and disposal.


Disposal bins for serological pipettes, Bio-bin

The 6L Bio-bin has been specifically designed to safely contain serological pipettes in labs. For this reason the bin is tall and thin and therefore best used with a stand. Bio-bin®is the ideal solution for biohazard or non-hazardous waste.

6L Bio-bin Waste Disposal Container | Pipette Bio-bin

The 6 L Bio-bin® has been specifically designed to safely contain serological pipettes in labs. Tall and thin: Best used with a stand. Fold-flat space efficient design, stackable pre- and post-use. Absorbent Bio-matt™ in the base of every bin can absorb 100 ml of fluid. Built-in lid and handles. Temporary and permanent seals. Fully autoclavable. Dynalon Bio-bins are a new cost effective and convenient alternative to rigid plastic waste collection and disposal containers. Bio-bins are ideal for use in academic, clinical, government and industrial laboratories for a wide range of non-sharps biomedical and laboratory waste that require special heat treatment such as autoclaving or incineration before disposal.

Proper Segregation and Disposal of Laboratory Waste

Every laboratory should have a separate recycling bin dedicated to glass. Clean empty glass bottles and broken glassware may be recycled. To clean an empty glass bottle, it must be "triple rinsed" with water or another suitable solvent and air-dried before disposal. Because proper management and disposal of laboratory waste requires information about its properties, it is very important that laboratory personnel accurately and completely identify and clearly label all chemical and waste containers in their laboratory, as well as maintain the integrity of source material labels. Lab waste from all laboratory is collected by General Affair and Equipment Unit of FKUB and transported to final waste-treatment unit regularly. Examples of proper segregation include separating:-acids from bases-oxidizers from organics-cyanides from acids. Effective segregation alone can ensure effective biomedical waste management.

FAQ of Pipette Tips

What is a serological pipette?

Serological pipettes are temperature calibrated laboratory tools that are the ideal choice for laboratories that need to transfer large amounts of liquid (1 mL to 50 mL).

How do you dispose of serological pipettes?

To dispose of the pipettes, the trash bag should be tied closed and transferred to a cardboard box (if it's not stored in one already). The box should be taped closed and “trash” should be written on the box. It is highly recommended that lab personnel remove the box directly to a nearby dumpster.

Can serological pipettes be recycled?

Serological pipettes could be collected in them, sealed, autoclaved and disposed in regulated medical waste boxes.

Are serological pipettes sterile?

Designed for accurate and rapid fluid dispensing, serological pipettes are sterile, pyrogen-free, cotton plugged, and can be used for a variety of liquid handling applications (certified DNase/RNase free). They are manufactured from transparent medical grade polystyrene and sterilized by gamma radiation.


Are serological pipettes plastic?

Ideal for scientists who need to easily and quickly transfer liquid aliquots from one container to another with precision. The Gilson disposable plastic serological pipettes are perfect for use with MACROMAN® to help you in your daily cell-culture, molecular biology and microbiology applications.
