Relates to: Abandoned Hospital / Laboratory
Indicators: Pressure seal doors, intricate vent system.

Machine used in hospitals and laboratories where the air is drawn INTO the building through the doors.

Should someone working on a biological / irritant chemical or agent release the agent into the atmosphere (by leak, broken cylinder, accident, etcetera) then the irritant or bio agent will not "escape" the facility since the air is drawn INTO the building.

There is normally a central extractor fan with filter and ioniser. Care should be taken in these areas that:
1. There is no agent left lying around.
2. There is no possibility of the doors sealing you into an airtight compartment.

Often found in laboratories attached to infectious disease hospitals.
