Handling BSL2 flow samples

Our flow cytometry facility will begin running human (fixed) samples on
our analyzers soon and would like to know what special precautions
should be taken for these and other BSL 2 samples. In particular, we
know we will have HIV-infected samples, but we do not know what other
pathogens we might be working with in the future. We have 3 analyzers in
a separate room with a sink and limited access. Can anyone provide some
general guidelines on how the samples should be handled and discarded?
What sort of disinfection must be done for the analyzers and the
surrounding benchtop?  
Thanks in advance for any advice!
