Developing countries might look towards this $2 contraption to help safe lives. From what we can gather, it’s simply a piece of tubing attached to the end of a manual egg-beater and spins fast enough to separate the blood enough for Hepatitis B and cysticercosis tests. A user can even do multiple blood tests by taping more tubes to the beater. It just goes to show that a little ingenuity can go a long way. Maybe next time, somebody will produce an atom smasher from a meat tenderizer. Yeah. There isn’t anything like tender atoms. Hmmm.
