Cathal Garvey in Cork, Ireland, developed this 3D printable centrifuge attachment for a rotary tool, dubbing it the “Dremelfuge.” What an awesome alternative to an expensive piece of lab equipment, congrats on paving the way for DIY science! If you don’t have access to a 3D printer to print your own, he’s made it available for purchase on Shapeways, where it’s still cheaper than a traditional centrifuge. [via @bre]
