In this 2007 image, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) microbiologist, Special Pathogens Branch staff member, could be seen manipulating a flask of cells, from which he was pipetting a sample, which would be used in experiments with live viruses. This laboratorian was working within the confines of an enclosed flow hood, within which was created a negatively pressurized environment, thereby, drawing laboratory room air back into the hooded cabinet, rather than allowing air from within the hood to reenter the laboratory area. Note that he was wearing an airtight, self-contained, positively pressurized suit, which kept him free of possible contamination, while he carried out his experiments.
