Workers at the blood drying unit at Cambridge University remove bottles of dried plasma from the vacuum drying chambers, in which they have remained for three days. A small amount of moisture still remains, even after the three days, so the bottles are placed in secondary vacuum chambers for another two days, along with a drying agent, Phosphorous Pentoxide.
