3D printers used to fight malaria

Malaria kills 1300 children per day. Doctors say that early diagnosis is key to surviving malaria, but getting test kits to rural parts of the developing world, where malaria is deadliest, can be difficult. Now engineers and doctors from Vanderbilt University have come up with a 3D printed malaria test kit. The test kit gives diagnosis in minutes, and could be a game changer for ridding the world of malaria. Trials of the 3D printed kits are currently underway in Zambia.
