Biohazard was a term used to describe any biological condition or agent that that posed a threat to the health of living organisms, whether animal or vegetal. Biological hazards could be the results of an accident, a natural disaster or a bioweapon designed with deliberate, malicious intent. The Blue Shadow Virus, the swamp gas, and the Imperial bioweapons Project I71A were examples of bioweapons causing hazards. There existed many types of survival gears that allowed to protect one's body against such biological threat. Those included the multipurpose enviro-suits, the biohazard hood, and hazmat gear There also existed vehicles, such as SoroSuub Corporation's S-130 Shelter speeder, that were designed to protect its passengers from biohazards.
