Standard Operating Procedures
  The "Standard Operating Procedures" manual outlines the exact steps researchers must take for conducting experiments with excreta and interacting with equipment in the laboratory. For each of the analyses described, the manual includes a summary of the procedure, sampling procedures, safety precautions, equipment or apparatus used, reagents, experiment procedure, and other important information. In addition, the manual provides detailed precautions regarding safe handling and disposal of samples, steps for remedying chemical or biological spills, and storage of chemicals and wastewater and faecal samples.
