In 2008-2009, 13 students and three faculty members from the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Illinois Tech built a full-scale working replica of the Brigham-Kolff dialysis device in a special project class. This second generation dialysis design was built between 1947 and 1970 by Edward Olson in Ashland, Mass., and was based on the original Willem Kolff rotating drum dialysis machine from 1943. This particular project was modeled after a 1954 machinehoused in the National Museum of Health and Medicine in Silver Spring, Md.
