This scene was captured inside the Uganda Virus Research Institute, located in Entebbe, Uganda, and depicted a laboratory technician seated at a Baker SterilGARD®III, Advanceº, Biological Safety Cabinet, while working with samples that were part of the country’s July - August 2012, Ebola outbreak investigation. Note the personal protective equipment (PPE) being worn by the laboratorian, including a filtered breathing system, covering all bodily surfaces, in order to avoid viral contamination. The hood works by applying a negative pressure to its interior, thereby, preventing contaminants from escaping into the laboratory environment.
