Well just off the top of my head we will need/want:

  • A source of Deionized water
  • Bunsen Burners (So tanks of propane or butane)
  • An incubator for storing of growing samples(DIY this w/arduino temperature control?)
  • A freezer for long term storage(Genes, etc)
  • An autoclave(possibly optional, but would need alternate way to sanitize)
  • A pcr machine
  • A microscope or two( To view our results!)
  • Test tubes(I believe we already have a good amount)
  • petri dishes(Do we have these?)
  • Agar
  • Gloves, goggles, safety gear, lysol, antibacterial agents.

Again, this is just off the top of my head, and I plan on taking stock of what we have at the lab in the bio-hacking drawer and making note of it on here.
