A faculty member asks me this question:
I had spoken with you earlier about wanting to do some work with liver microsomes. We are opting to work with mouse liver microsomes, since it would reason that they are safer than working with human liver microsomes (even if the organelles come certified as free of viruses, etc). However, I find little information about the safety of mouse liver microsomes... do you had any suggestions on where to find such information?
The SDSs I find for this product pretty much say "no data available" across the board; I wonder if other Chemical Hygiene Officers have addressed this question? This is another good example of biosafety reaching into the chemical lab and am interested to know whether the group this process is better treated according to Prudent Practices or BMBL safety processes.
Thanks for any information on this.
