||An incident is described in which a research scientist was exposed to a newly isolated arenavirus, Sabia virus, while purifying the virus from a large volume of tissue culture fluid. The researcher was working in a laboratory which met the standard biosafety requirements. The exposure resulted in development of a Sabia virus infection from which the patient recovered. Following a safety review, a number of new practices and procedures were added to the university's biosafety policy.
