Breezes can supply air currents needed to carry aerosols away from the immediate work area. An isolated one-room building with free airflow through openings on all sides is good for doing tuberculosis work. Technicians should work facing and close to a large open window on the downwind side so that a good airflow comes from behind the technician and exits immediately outside, away from others. Fans also can direct airflow. Cloth or paper strips hung in the openings will show the airflow direction.

The human eye sees bright objects against dark backgrounds more easily. As a result of improved object viewing, a small object, such as a bacterial cell, can be seen at lower magnification with fluorescence microscopy than by brightfield microscopy. This means that lower power objectives and ocular lenses can be used that provide larger fields of view. For example, a ×20 objective will show approximately four times the field area as that shown using a ×40 objective. Thus, a technician can examine more area of a slide specimen in a shorter time.

M. marinum can infect punctured or scraped skin that is exposed to the organism, usually in open water or water in fish tanks. Acid-fast bacilli are found in exudates from these ulcers, but the ulcers frequently heal with no complications. 1 Safety Technician safety is a major concern in tuberculosis laboratories because tuberculosis is very infectious. Aerosol droplets containing acid-fast bacilli that are breathed into the lungs cause tuberculosis infection. Aerosols are created by coughing, sneezing and talking, or by certain laboratory operations like stirring or mixing liquids, breaking bubbles, or vibrating laboratory tools while working with liquids.
