Staff of the blood drying unit at Cambridge University at work in the laboratory. In the foreground, one worker is pushing a trolley full of bottles of dried plasma from the drying chambers to the area where they will be fitted with their metal caps, complete with hypodermic needles, before returning to the drying process. In the background, another worker slides a tray of bottles through a hatch into the room where the caps are put onto the bottles. This hatch has two doors and excludes 'draughts of dust-laden air' from the main laboratory.
