Equipment and Lab Close-out & Moves


When a Principal Investigator moves to another laboratory on campus or leaves UTMB, it is their responsibility to clean out their old lab space.  Contact EHS at 409-747-0515 for help in this process.  Once the laboratory has been cleaned then EHS and the Department of Biosafety needs to complete a walk-through of the space.  The Laboratory closure form will be completed by EHS and the Department of Biosafety and placed on the door(s).

Decontamination forms must be attached to all laboratory equipment that needs to be repaired, (in-house or sent back to manufacture) or if the equipment needs to go to surplus: Equipment decontamination form.
