Hi Leigh Ann,

Human albumin and empty  containers that held it should be managed as a biohazardous waste in the red containers since there is always a very slight risk of infectious agents, as stated in the manufacturers' literature.

Best regards,

Should the used vials / bottles of Human Albumin be disposed of in the Black box, pharmaceutical waste containers or the red, biohazardous waste containers?
