Hannibal took himself to his lab by back routes. Nothing secret, of course, just stairs and elevators that just weren't generally used by the public. He didn't want to risk the idiotic fumbling of a stranger while he was carrying something so potentially hazardous. He did not relish living through another zombie outbreak, no matter the source.
There were moments when his lab butted up against his office and sometimes even shared a door. There were other days when it was on the other end of the hallway, depending on where the City thought it might work the best, he supposed, or it just playing more games. Today he came upon the door long before he ever made it close to his office. He supposed he was glad for that. Hannibal keyed in the code on the special pad that also read his fingerprints, and stepped inside.
He donned a protective suit before he ever even looked at what he was holding. Only when he was sure that he was safe did he take the samples over to his equipment and begin the work. It didn't take him long to isolate the difference in Maggie's blood from every other specimen he'd ever seen. This certainly wasn't of his world, or this one.
Hannibal quickly compared the blood with the saliva and found nothing. He ran a few other tests just to be sure. When he was satisfied with the results fully, he put everything into the biohazard bag and walked it to the incinerator. As an extra measure of safety, he also burned the protective suit.
A little more than thirty minutes had gone by when he returned to the room. Slightly longer than he'd told her it would be, but he didn't think that she would be upset, given the measures he'd taken to assure what he was going to tell her. He picked her chart up again as he walked through the door and scribbled some notes on it. Nothing that would reveal what he'd looked for to anybody but himself. He wished to have a visual record of his findings as well as the one in his brain.
"The good news, Ms Garcia, is that the virus does not appear to be anywhere but in your blood. The bad news being that it does appear in your blood, and doesn't seem to be any less than what you described."
