Description: Caption:
This 2013 image, depicts a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) scientist using a pipette to transfer H7N9 virus into vials for the purpose of sharing with partner laboratories for research. Note that she was wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), which included gloves, a full body smock, and a head covering, consisting of a face shield, and a head covering, providing her with clean, filtered air. Note that her activities were taking place within the confines of a negatively pressurized flow hood, which by drawing air into the hooded cabinet, prevented the escape of contaminants back out into the laboratory environment.
