Investigating Safety Incidents

During injection of human cancer cells into a mouse tail vein (in the SPF), resistance in the syringe (that contained the cancer cells) caused the contents to splash into the student’s eye as she was pulling the syringe out of the tail

During the insertion of a "comb" (used to build the sample loading wells) into an acrylamide gel solution (SDS-PAGE), (a standard lab procedure for separating protein) the gel solution splashed into the student’s eyes. The student was not wearing protective goggles. 

The student turned on the microwave, stirred lightly and then, after opening it again, while slightly tilting the tool, the contents of the tool erupted violently, up to a distance of about 3 meters, with boiling liquid hitting her face, near the eye.
