The Story of your Blood

Dr Archie Prentice, Dr Deepti Radia, Dr Joel Newman

Blood has long been used as an aid to diagnosis but now more than ever it can be key to establishing the cause of disease. From glass bottles to complex plastic systems, the storage of blood has evolved and so too have the processes used to analyse the small blood sample given at your GP’s surgery.

This lecture relates to series from the Royal College of Pathologists: A History of Pathology in 50 Objects.
