A training film based on biological warfare defense aboard a U.S. ship in the United States. Damage control personnel work with an air sampling kit to take air samples. A man puts a liquid in an impinger and prepares two molecular filters. He takes out a tube containing a nutrient which is the food for bacteria. He fits a filter on one of the impinger and removes cotton plugs. The man connects the impinger to a pump. The pump draws air through the impinger and BW (Biological Warfare) agents are trapped in the liquid. The impinger is inverted, the liquid goes through the filter and bacteria is caught on it. The man removes the filter and the liquid is kept in a container. The liquid from the impinger is also preserved. Samples are sent to a hospital ship by a helicopter for analysis. Laboratory testing of the samples. A man injects an animal to identify the BW agent. A doctor aboard the ship examines the laboratory results.
