Human blood and blood Products: This category includes any type of blood disposal (including serum, plasma and other components) and human body fluids, including with any bodily fluids that are visually contaminated with blood or fluids where it might be difficult or impossible to differentiate between body fluids and blood.
Contaminated animal carcasses, body parts and bedding: From animals intentionally exposed to pathogens in research, biologicals production, or in vivo pharmaceuticals testing.
Cultures and stocks of infectious agents: This type of waste could include specimens from medical and pathology laboratories, culture dishes, devices used to transfer, inoculate, and mix, or discarded live and attenuated vaccines.
Isolation waste: Isolation wastes are any type of waste that has potentially been contaminated with a highly communicable disease.
