spillage

Post by gypsy » Tue Mar 07, 2006 12:56 am

Hi everyone!
This is kind of a different question and perhaps overly-paranoid (thats me :oops: ), but I spilled a live cell culture (mouse-derrived) on my bare hand. I washed it off as soon as I could. Should I be concerned for my safety as it is a cancerous line (as all 2° lines are)
thanks!

Think about it:
-Are mouse (cancerous or not) contagious or not?
-It is really easy to keep yor cells alive out of your culture, isn't it?
-How many bacteria on your skin? do they go through?

In conclusion take a deep breath, calm down and go on live your life, you haven't screwed your life... just your experiment.
