Depicted in this 2007 photograph, was Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) microbiologist, Dr. Davis Lupo, shown using a luminometer, in order to measure HIV infection in human cells in vitro, while Lee Lam observes. By employing various chemical reactions to the laboratory cell sample, the release of energy, in the form of emitted light, or bioluminescence, is then measured by this luminometer in quantitative units, known as RLUs, or relative light units. Dr. Lupo and Ms. Lam are National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) staff members, who works inside the center’s Laboratory Branch (ILB).
