Blood analysis machine. Machine used for the automated testing of donor blood. This machine finds the blood group of a sample and tests it for the presence of antibodies to cytomegalovirus (CMV) and the bacterium that causes syphilis. During transfusions the donated blood must be compatible with the patient's blood group. Incompatible groups can cause fatal immune reactions. CMV is a common virus that does not cause symptoms in healthy individuals, however it can cause serious infection in premature babies and those with a weakened immune system. Syphilis is a sexually transmitted infection, which can also be transmitted via the blood.
Science Photo Library was founded in 1981 by Michael Marten, one of the authors of "Worlds Within Worlds", a book exploring different ways to observe the universe - from electron micrographs, to images of earthrise taken from the Apollo spacecraft. When Marten started receiving requests for the beautiful images in the book, he had an idea of setting up Science Photo Library.
Since then, Science Photo Library has continued to work alongside world acclaimed photographers and the leading science and medical experts to provide a central source of the best science and specialist imagery available. Although the collection started with scientific images, it has grown to encompass all aspects of science and their impact on everyday life.
