When dealing with a biological spill, it is important to take the necessary safety precautions to ensure that the spill is properly cleaned up. To start, you should always wear gloves and a lab coat when handling any type of biological material. Next, cover the spill with paper towels and pour disinfectant around the edges of the spill so that it mixes with the spilled material. If there are any pieces of broken glass, use tweezers to pick them up and place them in a sharp-object container.
After the spill has been cleaned up, discard all disposable materials used in the process and place them in a biohazard bag. Lastly, follow the procedures for treating spills in the laboratory, as these will help to ensure that aerosols are not deposited in public areas.
