Advarra Executive Daniel Eisenman Featured in Biocompare Article About Working With SARS-CoV-2
Biocompare interviewed Daniel Eisenman, Advarra Director of Biosafety Services, for its article Staying Safe When Working With SARS-CoV-2.
Working with infectious agents like the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) requires special lab procedures and safety precautions. Eisenman joins other biosafety experts in describing the proper protocols to follow when handling infectious materials in the lab environment.
Eisenman recommends beginning with a risk assessment, then proactively creating a risk mitigation plan. “Create a safe environment proactively, instead of being reactive,” says Eisenman.
Eisenman also explained how his team performs remote or in-person facility walk-throughs to assess potential risks. He says, “This information allows us to envision the workflow, perform a comprehensive risk assessment, and help develop a risk mitigation plan specific to the client’s needs.”
