OMIS is a 3D tool for performing small-scale chemical synthesis and analysis. The system is Arduino-based and consists of an automated syringe pump run by a cheap stepper motor and reaction vessels. The design is meant to allow for fabrication” in one day”, and can pump fluids at rates between 60 and 300 μL/min. The paper, […]
We’ve been over-covering DIY syringe pumps for awhile now, but this LEGO based solutions is a lot more than just the delightful idea to use LEGOs for syringe pumps. NanoJ-Fluidics consists of three parts, a LEGO based, multiplexable syringe pump system, a liquid exchange system to cell culture dishes, and an electronic and software control […]
We’ve covered making your own syringe pumps before, but we’d like to draw your attention to this amazing write up by DropletKitchen to make push-only syringe pumps. Since this is the second post from DropletKitchen, consider perusing their various projects.
While we love the syringe pumps from SyringePump.com (really!), consider making your own syringe pumps instead with the Open Source Syringe Pump Library. If you want the with it, here’s a more professional looking arduino-based setup.
Welcome to the first Technical Tuesday! Where we try to dive a little deeper into the actual costs involved in particular scientific techniques. We hope to show where you can save money, and what you might lose by saving that money. Today’s topic is protein purification by columns thanks to Dr. Marc Ridilla who provided […]
