SCP-016 is to be considered extremely dangerous. Tests so far show that the specimen is capable of infecting almost any organic being and start reproducing. This process is lethal within 3 minutes for all species tested so far (including humans). When collected, the specimen is capable of producing forces great enough to rip a human apart in an instant. In 2001 a containment breech resulted in the deaths of 14 personnel and tests after containment showed significant mutation in the escaped strain.
Containment Protocol Alfa: The most effective way to keep SCP-016 from reforming is to create heavily turbulent airflows in the containment chamber. This is done with 8 industrial fans placed in the rooms corners. The neural network of SCP-016 is disrupted by current and to keep SCP-016 from exploring weaknesses in the walls of the chamber, an electromagnetic field has been put in place that reaches about 10 cm into the room.
