Giant Microbes Red Blood Cell Erythrocyte
This is the one cell that we see more than any other. This is what gives us red blood.
Now this is a very clever little chappie. Without this cell in your body you cannot survive, as this is the fellow that carries all the oxygen that we breathe around our body. It feeds all of your organs constantly. A normal person has 10,000,000,000,000 of these, so don't worry if you prick your finger, you have plenty more if you loose a little.
Did you know what the blood banks in the UK need to be constantly refilled and we can only keep blood for a maximum of 6 weeks. Then unfortunately it has to be disposed of. Blood banks need our blood to save peoples lives. I had a blood transfusion a few years ago, without it I would have truly died. I can't thank that person enough for giving their blood so I could live. This is a great tool for education and for blood donation awareness. Plus he is rather cute. He looks like someone I work with actually.
