Sterilization Facilities


The Department of Pathology and Microbiology provides centralized services for dishwashing and autoclaving to our faculty on the UNMC campus. We support three locations: 4th floor of Wittson Hall (WHM 4020), 11th floor of Lied Transplant Center (LTC 11738), and 4th floor of Durham Research Center 2 (DRCII 4009), the latter of which is run in conjunction with Eppley Institute. Services include mechanical and hand washing of laboratory dishware.  We offer self- and full service autoclaving, as well as the processing and disposal of hazardous biological waste materials. To utilize the facilities, you must be fully trained on the equipment. Please contact your staff representative listed below.
