Hi all, 

 

As above mentioned, is it safe to use hand with gloves to take out sample from product package into sterile bag prior to send for micro lab test?

Hi Carine,

 

Putting on clean gloves should be the last thing you do before opening the sterile bag. To emphasize the importance, you can literally buy bags with sterile gloves directly attached to each one, as seen here

 

Some people may disagree, but I'd rather err on the side of caution.

If you don't want to buy the sterile gloves with the bag (which i like too) then at least spray your gloves with IPA or some other sanitizer prior to touching anything


Because we always have is never an appropriate response!
