Simplicity: Paper based microfluidics, diagnostics for all
Paper-based microfluidic devices, new opportunities for diagnostics in the developing world.
The Simplicity approach of recent research done at the Whitesides group in Harvard has led to a series of simple and cheap microfluidic devices based on simple paper or DIY solution to build a centrifuce from an egg-beater. Shortly after publication in Lab-on-a-Chip and PNAS they started a non-profit organisation "Diagnostics for All" dedicated to creating low-cost, easy-to-use, point-of-care diagnostics designed specifically for the 60% of the developing world that lives beyond the reach of urban hospitals and medical infrastructures.
