Open Source PCR Hack Night

Dear All,

We are VERY pleased to be able to announce the first of our open source DIY Bio lab equipment hacknights. The upcoming hacknight will be focused on building an open source PCR, we currently have a prototype which cycles but if you have a PCR you're working on please feel free to bring it as well and work alongside us!

This event will be run in conjunction with OMGBio and the Micro Controller Hack night (run by Hol) at Sudo Room.

The overview of the evening will include:
Principles of PCR

Principles of Temperature Control

Aims are to get temperature cycling of 1C per second with accurate measurements at the current rated power

We'll be using Peltier for cooling and we'll be using Nicrom wire for heating (although this is up for discussion). If you have any questions please feel free to contact Ryan, Marc or Hol!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
