High-security biological laboratory. View of a researcher at work in a high-security (level 4) laboratory. The researcher sits at a laminar flow cabinet while pipetting biological samples. He wears an air-proof, fire-proof integral suit and helmet of polyethylene chloride. He receives oxygen through a yellow coiled air tube. A level 4 laboratory is used for highly dangerous biological research, for instance on viruses. The bomb-proof steel laboratory contains air-locks, decontamination rooms, 24-hour security and contamination alarms. Photographed at Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, USA.
