As he removes it, the slot it came from is full of blood. He places it inside a container. Then as he hits the button to close the compartment, the slot has no blood in the next shot, and no implying he cleaned or decontaminated the slot. (00:08:00)

Trivia: When David is cutting his hair, he is singing, "The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo." This is a reference to the film, "Lawrence of Arabia." In Alien: Prometheus, David had a fondness for that particular movie and emulated Peter O'Toole, who played T.E. Lawrence. In the movie, Lawrence sang that song while riding on a camel in the desert.

Question: Why does David use his real name at the end instead of Walter's to gain access to the colonists and embryos? Wouldn't that been noticed in the log or something? He is pretending to be Walter in the first place and with the last log entry he uses the name Walter.

Answer: It doesn't matter anymore at that point. He has full control of the ship and can change anything he wants. Including the logs, if it's necessary.
