Center for Disease Control – Cryogenics Lab (135)

The Cryogenics Lab for the CDC at Lawrenceville, GA was primarily a storage of Aids Serum. The CDC planned to collect all the different known existing strands of the AIDS disease, so that they could study them. The Cryogenics refrigerators are capable of freezing below -150 degrees (150 degrees below zero, Celsius). Stainless steel nitrogen piping was installed along with a large exterior nitrogen tank. Two new electrical generators were also installed with parallel switching gear to supply back-up power to the entire CDC facility at Lawrenceville, GA.
