PHIL Image 14682
 
ID#:14682
Description:Taken circa 1947 – 1948, this historic image depicted former Public Health Service (PHS) Communicable Disease Center (CDC) parasitologist, Sadie Johnson Geiger, in the parasitology laboratory situated inside what was the old Baptist Book Store building, which was located on the intersection of Spring Street and Baker Street, in the city of Atlanta, Georgia. In this particular view, Mrs. Geiger was adding an unknown specimen to a beaker, which contained an unknown reagent.

Though laboratory protocols have changed over the years due to the new accumulation and review of scientific data, the basic laboratory methods for the analysis, and detection of parasites, as well as their interaction with other living organisms and their environments during their life cycles, has for the most part, remained constant. Of paramount concern is the attention paid to maintaining the safety of the laboratorian, and the cleanliness inside the laboratory environment, so as not to negatively affect the outcome of specimen analyses.
