Description:Using a Unopette®, this historic 1965 photograph depicted a laboratory technician performing a finger-prick in order to extract a donor’s capillary blood specimen, which was to be tested for the presence of cyanmethemoglobin.
Modern day protocols now call for the laboratorian executing such tasks, to wear additional personal protective equipment (PPE) including safety goggles, and a face mask. PPE, as defined by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, is “specialized clothing or equipment, worn by an employee for protection against infectious materials.”
