Do-it-yourself robotics kit gives science, tech, engineering, math students tools to automate biology and chemistry experiments
March 22, 2017
Stanford bioengineers have developed liquid-handling robots to allow students to modify and create their own robotic systems that can transfer precise amounts of fluids between flasks, test tubes, and experimental dishes.
The bioengineers combined a Lego Mindstorms robotics kit with a cheap and easy-to-find plastic syringe to create robots that approach the performance of the far more costly automation systems found at universities and biotech labs.
Step-by-step DIY… read more
