Question

What are the proper disposal procedures for ab120055, and how should it be neutralized in case of a spill?

Answer

Tetrodotoxin is very toxic and should be handled with caution. The safety datasheet is available from the datasheet.

Additionally, to neutralize the toxin, you may use a freshly made solution of 0.25% NaOCl + 0.25 N NaOH or a solution of 0.5% NaOCl. Allow a 30 minute contact time. The spill must then cleaned up using absorbent material. The area must be further washed using a soapy solution to remove any residues. The spill material should be collected and disposed of as hazardous waste.
