Welcome to the aDNA-lab HSE portal
This Wiki is meant as a tool for the students and staff working in our laboratories. The research groups that inhabit these laboratories are: NORCE Climate, the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research and the molecular ecology research group (MERG) at NORCE Environment.
Before you start working in our laboratories
No one is allowed to work in our laboratories until completing the Laboratory Safety Introduction. This will be given to you by one of the lab supervisors'. It is required that you sign that you have read, understood and agree to abide by our rules and regulations before starting any lab work. Please note that the lab supervisors have the authorization to expel you from the lab if you do not follow these rules.
All protocols need to undergo a risk assessment before being implemented in our laboratories. If the risk assessment of the protocol deems it necessary a work instruction must be written that takes all measures to reduce any undesirable incidents regarding people, material, operations, reputation or the environment while working with that protocol in our laboratories. Some areas in the lab require special training and authorization in order to work there. Here strict work instructions must be followed at all times.
