The answer to this is E, all of the above. When people undergo aseptic technique, this means that you will go through certain procedures in order to prevent yourself from being contaminated.

Some people become confused with sterile and aseptic. Sterile means that all of the microbes will be removed but aseptic means that only the disease-causing organisms will be removed. There are some procedures that can only be done in certain rooms in order to prevent the possibility of diseases from spreading.
