Biomakespace Build Night: Open-source Lasercut Incubator for Microbiology

  • Biomakespace Clifford Albutt Building Hills Road, CB2 0AH Cambridge UK (map)

>>> Register here

One of the most used instruments in a microbiology laboratory is the microbiological incubator, it is used for bacteria growth, incubation of cells and tempered storage. Sammy Mahdi will present a Biomaker Challenge project that aims to create a incubator that can be fabricated in a typical makerspace environment at a low cost while achieving the same performance as commercial units. The incubator features a parametric CAD design to allow the users to modify it depending on their volume requirements. Finally, the proposed incubator has two power options: mains-powered mode and battery powered mode for portable instrumentation in remote environments

We will build a couple of incubators in the lab after the presentation!

Mondays at the Biomakespace are an opportunity to meet people, find out new things, share progress and ideas. We also meet on Thursdays, this is our work day for volunteers! If you'd be interested to help out, read the current openings for volunteers online:

##How to find the Biomakespace

Postal Address: Biomakespace, Biomedical Innovation Hub [lifford Albutt Building], Biomedical Campus, Hills Road, Cambridge, CB2 0AH

Finding us: We are located within the Biomedical Innovation Hub. Follow signs to the Clifford Albutt Building (see image), walk up the steps and ring the Biomakespace bell on our meeting nights. The bell is white with a blue button and a Biomakespace sticker, it will be by the 'normal' door on the right, not the circular doors.
