Description:Caption:
This scene was captured inside the Uganda Virus Research Institute located in Entebbe, Uganda, and depicts 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.
