    The poster says, “Laboratory of Protozoology and Arachnology” and some of the samples seem to suggest that that’s what it is.

    Why was it abandoned?

    C6H5OH = Phenol
    K2S2O3 = Potassium thiosulfate

    Trypanosoma theileri: Trypanosoma are of the class kinetoplastida, a monophyletic[1] group of unicellular parasitic protozoa. The name is derived from the Greek trypaô (boring) and soma (body) because of their corkscrew-like motion. Trypanosomes infect a variety of hosts and cause the fatal disease sleeping sickness in humans.

    Great place to shoot a sequel to SAW III.

    Nobody is responsible for it?
    This is what makes Russia so frightening.

    In picture http://englishrussia.com/images/abandoned_lab/32.jpg there were mentioned manufacturing/best-before dates 27.9.93/4?.94 in the bottle.

    Abandoned due to soviet union collapse perhaps? Funding cut off?

    Great souvenirs by the way!

    Some pretty morbid and scary posts today.

  7. jf long says:

    just love the abandoned yolka!!

  8. Texas1 says:

    That’s true but most of the Russians on here have the wrong belief that somehow Russia is cleaner than the US.

  9. ODP says:

    I like how the first poster says that its a library…..but I don’t see any books. They wouldn’t have taken the books, but left vaccines.

  10. Delicious says:

    I bet there are no abandoned vodka distilleries.

  11. Aiwan says:

    such places shold be kept in silence and few shold know about them.

    Great find! But those dead organisms look freaky.
    Make sure no one vandalizes the building and take, save some of those chemicals\tools before someone steals them or something.

    During the Soviet times the government invested a lot of money into research, but as it collapsed, they closed many labs. Scientists got their wage cut in half. Although the situation has improved, it is cheaper to have new labs with new equipment than to restore old ones and salvage\repair apparatus. And brain drain to western countries has decreased the amount of scientists, etc. there.

    Those pictures really tell you how “antique” Soviet stuff looks. I have seen USSR-made flasks and mixers from late 80’s, which look like something from the 1700’s.

    I’ve been in abandoned hospitals in Detroit that have the same amount of chemicals. I don’t have a degree in Chemistry; but the number of chemicals are equal…

  16. daddy says:

    Thats where Binladen gets his chemicals!

  17. David Webb says:

    Note the two dead rats right there. My professional instinct would be to LEAVE.

  18. K says:

    ROFL yeah right

  19. gogu says:

    interesant…

  20. DFSL says:

    Someone said that if this was located in the US, the EPA would take care of it. WRONG. There are lots of old hospitals and asylums with chemical and medical equipment, and patient records and belongings left behind in the USA, Grat Britain and Europe. If you don’t believe me, visit my favorite page http://www.opacity.us You can elighten yourself using Google too.

      I also love Mott’s work at opacity.com. However, it really does not appear to be true that the abandoned facilities in the US or UK are this bad.

      I have gone through the entire site, and so far as medical samples and drugs go, there are no examples that are anything like this bad. There are several examples of cleaning materials. And there’s a couple of isolated examples that are moderately concerning, for example a bottle of hydrochloric acid at “Kingsley” in England — a kid who found that could burn himself, but it isn’t exactly virulently toxic. There are some more serious examples at West Middlesex Hospital, but they were not strictly speaking abandoned: this was a disused, guarded building on an otherwise very active campus. There are several other examples like, e.g. a bin of medical waste at Kings Park — but Motts links to a newspaper article noting that clean-up there is known to not be complete, the issues are publicly discussed, and it is subject to constant police patrols with 17 arrests in 2007.

      When it comes to abandoned confidential files, the problem is certainly much worse — the example of “Clairvaux” TB Hospital is particularly shocking. However once again, it is not strictly speaking abandoned: this is a disused building on an otherwise active campus, were he had to avoid a lot of CCTV cameras and other security (plus, apparently, EMS building entry training) in order to get in.

      Again, the Danvers file room looked bad, but Motts inspected the abandoned files and none were sensitive. This one also had very tight security, and if read my notes right it is the one where he was nearly arrested himself.

      So all in all, there are certainly some problems, but it is much, much better than these Russian examples.

    8th picture from below, it that test tube there seems to be a half transparent-white spider like creature ….

    Possibly a russian lab to create their own Uberzoldat.

    I also love Motts’ work over at opacity.com, but I’ve been over the whole site and I can’t agree that any of the examples he finds are anything like comparable to this.

    There’s plenty of examples of minor stuff like cleaning products or a small jar of acid left behind. And there’s a few examples like, say, West Middlesex where he found histological samples in formaldehyde. But West Middlesex is not, strictly speaking, abandoned; it is a disused building in a very active campus with a lot of security. At “Kings Park” he found a number of empty medical waste bags, but also one that hadn’t been emptied. However, while “Kings Park” was completely shut down, it wasn’t completely abandoned: it was heavily patrolled, with 17 trespass arrests in one year, and was scheduled for demolition and redevelopment.

    The situation with files was worse, especially in older facilities that were closed before HIPAA came into effect. The worst case was “Clairvaux”, where Motts found large quantities of personal information — in one case, just piled up feet deep in a room. However, “Clairvaux” is, once again, not strictly abandoned; it is one partially disused building (still being used for EMS “hazardous building entry” training) on an otherwise active campus with extensive security including CCTV coverage and security forces that Motts had trouble evading.

    I couldn’t find a single example like this one: a building totally open to all comers with no clean up at all, and scores of highly dangerous samples left behind.

    (Apologies if this appears twice: I read the thing about caching, but waited a lot more than 5 minutes without my comment appearing.)

  24. I have probably been looking around online for like the last 20 minutes for a site like yours. So i just want to give you a big thank you and tell you too keep up the hard work. Have a great weeken! =) Thank you!
