    liquid or semi-liquid state if compressed items
    that are caked with dried blood or other
    potentially infectious materials and are capable
    of releasing these materials during handling
    contaminated sharps and pathological and
    microbiological waste containing blood or other
    potentially infectious materials.
  • Other potentially Infectious Materials means (1)
