Common lab contaminants responsible for spoilage in a pharmaceutical college laboratory


Author(s): Aditya Prasad Dash, Debashish Gardia, Akshya Kumar Mishra and Aishwarya Khamari

Abstract: Numerous items have been shown to spoil in laboratories due to the presence of microbial contamination. Chemical and pharmaceutical working solutions are particularly susceptible to harm and contamination from indoor pollution. For reasons of safety as well as the validity of tests and experiments that must be conducted in non-contaminated surroundings, an assessment of the microbiological contamination of such materials may be of utmost significance. In this study, an effort was made to look at the bacterial flora in the lab waste from the pharmacy college and identify some of the isolates partially utilizing cultural, microscopic, and biochemical features. Before entering test rooms, recreation rooms, canteens, libraries, or any other area of the building, protective clothes worn in the lab must be removed. It's a good idea to wash your hands with disinfectant before and after conducting any experiment. We can infer from our experiment that laboratory reagents over time harbor a large number of microorganisms. Therefore, we should take preventative precautions like quality inspecting labs and inhibiting bacteria to ensure error-free tests.
