This week's Tuesday meetup at the Biomakespace will have an interactive hands on session on low tech DIY microfluidics.
We will take you through building your own low tech microfluidics using just plastic and paper and discuss wax paper, paper tape and plastic tape microfluidics. We will do this by working through some fun activities and discuss the best approach for different purposes.
About Lab It Tuesday
Tuesdays at the Biomakespace are usually an opportunity to meet some new people, find out new things, share progress and brainstorm ideas. In addition to this, we are now starting a series of talks delivered by scientists, artists, startups and experts from the local life science and technology clusters here in Cambridge and surrounding areas.
The meetup is usually between 7 and 9 pm, where the first hour is for speaker talks and the next hour is determined either by the speaker when some talks have follow on activities, or by the audience where it becomes an informal hour of discussing projects being planned at the BioMakespace, laboratory training on specific topics or equipment, discussing an interesting paper etc.
For those amongst you, who would like to get involved behind the scenes and help support the running of Biomakespace, come and talk to us on Tuesdays at 7 pm or turn up at our Thursday meet ups (7 pm) at the same venue .
