Resumen This guidance note is intended to minimise the risk of infection from specimens potentially infected with hepatitis B. It covers: potential sources of infection (clinical material in general, but particularly blood; airborne sources); precautions (training of staff who collect blood, vaccination, use of automated equipment, eye protection, labelling of specimens, transport and postage of specimens, reception of specimens, testing for hepatitis B antigens or antibodies). Principles for general laboratory work on potentially infectious specimens are outlined, and recommended disinfectants (hypochlorites or aldehydes) are listed with the appropriate concentrations.
