Captured in 1964, this image depicted a number of seated laboratory technicians, who were seated in a laboratory environment in the process of performing biochemical tests, which included the plating of microbial organisms on Petri dishes. The lab was inside the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) field station located in Phoenix, Arizona. See PHIL 21639, for an exterior view of the facility. Originally, the Phoenix field station specialized in the study of diarrhea and dysentery, concentrating on vector-borne diseases transmitted by flies, which included polio. The field station eventually became heavily involved in the study of hepatitis, as well.
