Spc. Darius Torres, a medical laboratory technician from Public Health Command-Pacific, simulates how to process a vector sample while Milagros Solá, a microbiologist form PHC-P, observes the process at the Environmental Molecular Biology Laboratory at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash. Many of the procedures to process vector borne disease samples are similar to how clinic samples are processed for COVID-19, making Torres and Solá’s skill sets invaluable during the pandemic.
