Sunlight-powered prototype sterilizes medical equipment

from MIT via Laboratory Equipment

Using sunlight, researchers and students at MIT are trying to change how medical equipment is sterilized in remote clinics — and a pilot project in Nicaragua has begun to show promising results. In that nation, a mostly rural population of 6 million is served by some 11 hospitals, dozens of health centers, and some 1,300 "health posts" that provide emergency care, obstetric services and the occasional baby delivery. Most of these posts, staffed by nurse practitioners, either lack equipment to sterilize surgical tools and bandages or have kerosene-powered autoclaves. more
