Abstract

A cytotoxic agent containment kit is disclosed which has a top enclosure member and bottom enclosure member that are hingedly connected much like a brief case. The bottom enclosure member has a sealable, nonpermeable container for drugs and another for holding waste such as empty drug containers and used hypodermic needles. A removable tray is provided which acts as a work surface for preparing the drugs for administration. The contents of the kit including the tray and containers can be disposed of after use, and the outer case reused. The kit's nonpermeable construction helps insure that persons handling it will not be accidentally exposed to the cytotoxic agents that it contains.
