Radioactive research. Male technician handling a bottle of radioactive liquid in a sealed cabinet known as a glovebox. The gloves and glass help to protect the worker from any ionising radiation produced by the liquid. The materials enter the glovebox via an antechamber (not seen here). Ionising radiation can cause tissue damage and biological defects so contact must be kept to a minimum.
