A biological inventory is required for all biohazards applicable under McMaster's biosafety policies. The format of any such inventory is at the discretion of the individual laboratory. The minimum features of any such inventory or inventory system is to include:
identification of the biohazards (species, names etc) stored and used within the laboratory
location of the biohazards (fridge, freezers, shelf, row, building, room)
any method to determine if any biohazards have been stolen or lost
The BUP captures a list of biohazards handled and stored. The lab should further maintain an inventory to satisfy elements 2 and 3. The individual lab has the freedom to design any system so long as it satisfies all three criteria.
