  12. Ussing Chamber (measures electrical currents through tissue)
  13. Magnetic Wire Recorder (NOT magnetic tape, as used in casettes)

  15. Fiber Trim (a diet pill)
  16. The Corn Thresher
  17. pH scale

    Yes great! Denmark has many great inventors and even scientists like Niels Bohr. We mustnt forget Handball which is a sport played world-wide.
