COLUMBUS, Ohio (Feb. 3, 2014)—In a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) building on the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia, large metal vats are arranged in the middle of a room like a set from a sci-fi movie. Inside each one, 40,000 vials are filled with an array of specimens such as blood, urine, tissue and DNA, many of them unique in the world, invaluable, and irreplaceable.
