Caption: Blood bank. Technician removes a tray that holds samples of frozen blood from a cold storage facility which uses liquid nitrogen as a refrigerant. Freezing, or cryo-preservation, is a means of storing blood for future use in transfusions. Freezing and controlled thawing of blood is also used to produce cryoprecipitates, residues which contain high levels of a desired blood component.
