As part of construction of the Clinical Center department of transfusion medicine’s Cell Processing Facility on the east terrace of Bldg. 10, one of six germfree modules is lifted into place at the CC on May 5.

The modules were delivered by semi-trailers to the site along Memorial Drive, between Bldgs. 10 and 5, then hoisted by a large crane.

Workers spent the day nestling the units into position.
