How do you recommend safely dispose of the Udetect DNA isolation reagents?

DO NOT add bleach or acidic solutions directly to the liquids contained in the Udetect DNA Isolation kit. Some of the buffers contain guanidine salts, which can form highly reactive compounds when combined with sodium hypochlorite (a.k.a. liquid bleach). If liquid containing these buffers is spilled, clean with suitable laboratory detergent and water, or 70% alcohol.

If the spilled liquid contains potentially infectious agents, clean the affected area multiple times with laboratory detergent and water. Then, clean the area with 1% (v/v) sodium hypochlorite.
