LabSafety: for the Zombie Apocalypse

While I rumi­nate on my Deus Ex: Human Rev­o­lu­tion expe­ri­ence, I have some new lab safe­ty prod­ucts to talk about … hand­i­ly deliv­ered to my inbox.  I’m think­ing of call­ing my Deus Ex posts some­thing along the lines of “I am not Adam Jen­son, Either” ref­er­enc­ing the excel­lent post by Alec Meer on RPS: I am not Adam Jen­son.  I have a bunch of dif­fer­ent rea­sons, but my thoughts are still a lit­tle mud­dled on the game.  Don’t get me wrong: it was good, but was it that good?

Any­ways… on to our top­ic: prepar­ing for the Zom­bie Apoc­a­lypse.  While firearms and melee weapons are pret­ty much stan­dard fare for the well-equipped Zom­bie war­rior, they don’t do you any good if you get infect­ed.  It would be handy if you had some pro­tec­tion.  Good news!

Full Face Respirator Mask

Full Face Res­pi­ra­tor Mask

The 3m Full Face Res­pi­ra­tor Mask is a good start.  You don’t want to get caught with an air­borne Zom­bie Virus … and even if it isn’t, it always seems bad to me when blood spat­ter is near the eye, nose and mouth mem­branes — if a bite is going to infect you, I’d be wor­ried about blood on the face too.  Besides with the decid­ed­ly pink­ish fil­ters (maybe the colour denotes what they fil­ter?) the mask gives a seri­ous­ly bad-ass look to any Zom­bie Killer.  Don’t get caught with­out protection.

Chemical Suit

Chem­i­cal Suit

On the oth­er hand, full body pro­tec­tion for only $20 is hard to pass up.  A full body suit (looks like the gloves, tape and boots  are extra, but still…) pro­tects you from blood spat­ter all over.  As above,  you don’t want to get blood on your last paper­cut to be your own per­son­al infec­tion vector.

Add a shot­gun or a flamethrow­er, and you’re set!
