Hi All

RSVP to the next Biomaker meetup on 18 May @ 19:30 in the Makespace Classroom. Plans for the evening include:
  • Teardown and repair of a spectrophotometer for measuring absorbance of liquid at different wavelengths
  • Continued development of a low-cost programmable incubator
  • 3D-printed mazes for slime moulds
Thanks very much and hope to see you there!


What is a Biomaker Meetup?

Monthly in-person, informal meetup/hangout @ Makespace for anyone for repairing, designing and building lab equipment. Join the Biology Club email group for updates and discussions:

Bring your own project to work on (anything involving lab hardware is welcome), take the opportunity to work through Biomaker training with others ( or join one of the Beneficial Bio community projects to benefit researchers in resource-limited labs in Africa and Latin America and closer to home in community labs like Biomakespace:
  • Dismantling and repairing PCR machines (like the COVID test ones but less fancy)
  • Using an Arduino(-like) device to turn a £120 beer fridge into a programmable incubator to grow biological things and make useful reagents for the laboratory
Free biscuits, friendly dogs and chat included.
Next Meetup: 18 May 2022
