A centrifuge made of paper and string and powered by hand can separate plasma from whole blood in 90 seconds and permit the diagnosis of malaria in 15 minuntes at the point of care. The centrifuge generates speeds of 125,000 rpm, with a theoretical maximum of 1,000,000 rpm.

An editorial on what will be soon required from papers sent to the Circulation group of periodicals, and probably soon to all reputable biomedical journals. Bolli advances that the internal and external validity of manuscripts has space for improvement!
