  • Microfluidics of single bacteria?
    Hi DIYbio community! I'm wondering if anyone is aware of a high-throughput microfluidic chip for long term time-lapse microscopy of individual bacteria. Most chips I come across are intended to monitor the growth of bacterial communities. I want to monitor individual bacteria. Thanks in advance
  • DIY Laminar flow hood
    I'm trying to put together the equipment I need to start on a DIYBio project, and I was wondering if anyone had some advice on putting together a laminar flow hood for sterile work? I have plenty of space to set it up, but I not sure what's the best way to construct it or what kind of filters
