Children hospital N19, Kharkov. Clinical laboratory. My grandma spent almost 30 years working here, just until she retired in the age of 76. In the childhood they often used to bring me here. I played around with retorts, test-tubes and looked at the pool water through the professional microscopes. Nothing changes till then. There is no new equipment and everything is done the same old way, just like before.

Pipettes and test-tubes.

To add some order, they made the laborarory staff mark their workplaces. Necessarily in Ukrainian.
