Blood processing. Technician using a computerised sealing system in a mobile unit. Donated blood (lower right) is sealed, catalogued and typed so that it can be transported to hospitals. Mobile units travel to prearranged areas, such as shopping centres and work places, so that potential blood donors can attend at their convenience. Donor blood is given to patients in transfusions to replace lost blood, for example during surgical procedures or after accidents.
