Before starting the wet lab part of the project all team members had to take part in a safety lecture held by the lab manager at the Systems and synthetic biology department. During this lecture the team learned how to handle chemicals and waste in the lab, we also had a lab tour where the safety equipment were introduced. During the lab tour all the responsible research engineers were present and gave us introductions to all of the different lab equipments they are responsible for.
As a safety measurement, each team member had to read the materials safety data sheet for the materials used and the KLARA risk assessments of the machines handled during the summer. Each member then had to sign the risk declaration to testify that one had taken part of this information and gain access to the laboratory.
