a Drop of Blood Lab - Synthetic Blood Typing
Note:  this lab is divided into two parts.  In Part 1 you will be making a slide of synthetic blood to view under the microscope.  In Part two you will be typing blood and determining which donor could safely give blood to our patient.  You MUST do the two activities above before doing this lab.
Note: you did this lab in the Human Biology Unit.  You do not need to do it again, but you may need to review it and apply what you learned to help solve this crime.
