    a, b, and e can be washed in a sink with no previous treatment

    (I am assuming that the dissection tools and trays were used in dissection of preserved specimens and not of living or fresh material.)

    c and d must be autoclaved (loops flamed to red hot) before they are then washed in the sink.
