Re: [DIYbio] Low cost lab equipment (NB fridges/ice machines)

Hey Tom,


I have a couple of thermocyclers if you are interested.  Where are you located?

Hi All!

I just wanted to ask if anyone has advice on using domestic fridges in labs? I was advised to avoid defrost cycles (since the temperature can ramp up to a few degree below zero). Would there be any other advice? We are considering buying a separate fridge and freezer as an insurance policy in case on breaks. Otherwise has anyone used anything in the past or got advice on this?

I was also curious if anyone had any old equipment or advice on places that might have: thermocycler, tabletop centrifuge and shaking incubator? If anyone has an old bioreactor we are also interested in that as well!

We have just moved our labs (we make cell free extract if anyone is interested! cell-free.tech) and we have a great new location but... It is completely empty apart from a laminar flow hood. We have a limited budget for relocation and startup and are looking to save as much as we can by buying disused or minor repair equipment.

Any advice you might have would be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance.
