Use of flexible plastic film isolators in performing potentially hazardous necropsies.
  1. P C Trexler,

    A number of necropsies were performed with the body completely isolated in a flexible film isolator in order to determine the practicability of such a method in protecting the post mortem room staff from the risk of infection from the corpse. It is considered that necropsies can be carried out using such an isolator without hindrance to either manual skill or vision and that a high degree of safety is achieved. The isolator may also be used to carry out necropsies on decomposed bodies.
