Researchers Successfully Transport Blood By Drone

By Kelsey D. Atherton  

Would you trust a drone with your blood? A new study by Johns Hopkins shows that, at least for testing purposes, a small drone can safely transport a small amount of blood without damaging it. The study was a proof of concept, with perhaps the secondary goal of getting “blood” and “drone” into a headline together. It’s also potential good news for patients who need medical care in rural areas, as safely transporting blood through the sky spares the dangers or delays due to impassable roads.
