Low-Tech Centrifuge Made From An Eggbeater

Idle 12

AshokaTECH writes "A piece of plastic tubing is taped to an egg beater as replacement for expensive high tech equipment that is used to separate blood into different components that can be tested. From the article, 'The cheap, portable and readily-available egg beater can be used at the point of care, meaning that health workers can diagnose illness in remote areas. The technique also uses smaller volumes of blood than regular centrifuges.'"

I'm just waiting to hear that some medical tool company will start producing these for 30 times the price of an egg beater.

Eh? You mean: you wait to hear of a company which will start producing centrifuges (30 times more expensive) to be used for beating eggs in downtown areas (as opposed to remote ones)?
