Blood storage. Gloved hands packing bags of processed donated blood into a box, ready for medical use. The bags contain red blood cells in a solution. The blood plasma, whose contents includes various suspended white blood cells (leucocytes) has been removed. The blood is therefore labelled "Leucocyte Depleted." After processing, the red blood cells will be frozen. Donated blood is used in hospitals to replace blood loss, especially in treating bleeding disorders such as haemophilia.
