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: https://biology-club.makespace.org/
Bring your own project to work on (anything involving lab hardware is welcome), take the opportunity to work through Biomaker
training with others (https://www.biomaker.org/
) 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.
