    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.

    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?
