SECTION 3 - COMPOSITION/INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS

Various Microbial Cultures at Biosafety Level 1 or 2 or 3

Either freeze dried, frozen or growing cells shipped in liquid cell culture medium (a mixture of components that may include, but is not limited to: inorganic salts, vitamins, amino acids, carbohydrates and other nutrients dissolved in water). Frozen Cultures may also contain a 5%-10% solution of Dimethyl sulfoxide as a cryoprotectant.

This substance contains no ingredients at concentrations to be considered hazardous as defined by OSHA 29CFR 1910.1200 however this product should be handled according to good lab practices, with proper personal protective equipment, proper engineering controls and within the parameters of the purchaser’s chemical hygiene plan.

SECTION 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES

Ingestion: If person is unconscious seek emergency medical attention; never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If the person is conscious wash mouth out with copious amounts of water and call a physician then administer three cupfuls of water. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by a physician.

Inhalation: If person is unconscious seek emergency medical attention, if person is conscious remove to fresh air and call a physician.

Dermal exposure: Immediately wash skin with copious amounts of water followed by washing with soap and copious amounts of water. Remove all contaminated clothing.

Eye exposures: Flush eyes with copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes with eyelids separated and call a physician.

Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically and supportively.
