In this historic 1967 image, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) laboratory technician, was seated at a biological safety cabinet, while he appeared to be pipetting an unknown liquid from a glass beaker. The ventilated hood was able to evacuate the hooded area air, by drawing fresh air into the hood, thereby, keeping it out of the laboratory environment. Modern day protocols, now call for the laboratorian executing experiments under the hood, to wear personal protective equipment (PPE) including safety goggles, gloves, and a facemask.
