Description:This historic 1967 image depicts a former Centers for Disease Control (CDC) laboratorian using what was an early anaerobic enclosure within which he was carrying out experiments, which demanded that the atmosphere be oxygen-free.
Many pathogens require environments free of oxygen, and therefore, when studying these organisms in the laboratory, such circumstances must be artificially constructed. This was a very early model of an air-tight enclosure, which contained no oxygen. Equipped with portals, it allowed the scientist to interact with materials inside the unit, while standing in his protected laboratory environment.
