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.'"
