We don't have formal SOP's. But because they have reduced ventilation we prohibit (posted) storing boxes with dry ice in them. We (post) prohibit food for human consumption storage in all our refrigerated spaces unless specifically designated for that kind of storage (i.e. conference rooms).

Happy Monday to you all,

For those of you that have cold rooms, do you have an SOP that you do for them as far as general guidelines? We have had a moisture problem here that is mostly resolved, but now we need to sanitize the rooms. If you have a best practices or guidelines that you have followed, would you be willing to share?

Even something that I can share with the scientists to help with keeping the rooms in best condition would be very helpful.

Thank you,
