An open-source, motorized, and modular microscope built using LEGO bricks, Arduino, Raspberry Pi and 3D printing. The microscope uses a Raspberry Pi mini-computer with an 8MP camera to capture images and videos.
OpenFuge describes all the materials and gives step by step instructions to the assembly of a centrifuge that is able to deliver 6000 G’s of force and to rotate at 9000 RPM, while being able to hold 4 eppendorf tubes.
The 5 dollar PCR machine is a project from David Ng.
he created a very interesting design for the PCR machine. Instead of using eppendorfs, he is using teflon tubes and three different heating elements, which allows for cheaper (he has a working PCR machine for 5 dollars!
DremelFuge is a very simple and clever centrifuge, buit perhaps not the safest one (be careful if you end up using it!).
It takes advantage of 3d printing technology to print an adaptor that goes on to a Dremel (a precision tool that has really high rotation rates).
A very neat picospritzer initially created by Joe (PI at Raimondo Lab) using basically a solenoid valve, microcontroller and a power source.
Was later further developed by Chris at the Baden Lab, and collaboratively published as a peer reviewed article.
