A simple salad spinner will save lives this summer, if everything goes as planned by two Rice University undergraduates.

The spinner has been turned, so to speak, into a rudimentary centrifuge that medical clinics in developing countries can use to separate blood without electricity.

Lila Kerr, a Sid Richardson College sophomore, and Lauren Theis, a Wiess College freshman, will take their Sally Centrifuge abroad for testing this summer as part of Beyond Traditional Borders (BTB), Rice's global health initiative that brings new ideas and technologies to underdeveloped countries. Kerr will take a spinner to Ecuador, Theis will take one to Swaziland and a third BTB team will take one to Malawi.
