This 1963 image, depicted a view inside one of the laboratories, located at the former Southeastern Radiological Health Laboratory (SRHL) in Montgomery, Alabama, which is now known as the National Air and Radiation Environmental Lab, and is part of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This laboratory technician was in the process of performing what is known as a differential blood cell count, categorizing the blood cells by their type, using her left hand on the counter’s buttons. Each of the counter’s buttons represented another cell type, which included red blood cells (RBC), also known as erythrocytes, and various types of white blood cells (WBC), including neutrophils, eosinophils, and lymphocytes.
