Got a hardware project that should be listed at diybio.org/hardware? Please provide a link to more details in the comments below.

Hello our good friends at DIY BIO! Feel free to add our DIY electrophysiology rigs and micromanipulators for neuroscience experiments: http://www.backyardbrains.com/
i want to test things like water (for pollutants), food (for salmonella and other bacterias), wheat and spices (for contaminants, often used to cheat on final weight), minced meat (for true fat levels) and milk (if the manufacturer is lying about using pure milk, water or reconstituted milk). I live in a developing or 3rd world country where the govt is either too corrupt or too stupid to test the aforementioned before they are sold to the public. So we’re the dumping grounds of products that can’t be sold to a first-world nation. It would be great if I could make an off-the-shelf kit for such testing and publish my results. Thanks.

Hi There. just discovered this place today… Anyway, you might want to have a look at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5045
There is always use for a DIY Orbital Shaker right? A video of it working here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1d4_SQBTFjg
I made a UV hood for my garage lab. It came together pretty easily. Unfortunately I didn’t take pictures as I put it together, but I could provide pictures of the finished product, the measurements of all the cuts, the source for the bulbs, the tested UV output and all the prices. I also tested the acrylic I used for the shield to make sure it was UV opaque so you can be sure you don’t fry yourself.
It’s not as useful for ensuring sterility as a laminar flow hood, but it’s better than just a burner, only costs around 300 bucks to put together and can be used for a bunch of experiments in it’s own right.
I don’t have a web page or anything, would you guys be interested? And how should I go about providing this information to you?
DIY BioPrinter: a high resolution XY platform made from scavenged CD drives, topped with an inkjet print head that can print live cells onto a surface. Team effort by the BioPrinter Community Project at BioCurious.
