After two weeks of intensive hands on training, the 2nd Open Labware workshop is close to conclusion. Here, at the Department of Physiology in the University of Ibadan, Nigeria, participants from seven different countries are learning about open source technologies, 3D printing and electronics in order to build laboratory equipment. Each group is going to leave with a fully functional 3D printer, Arduino kits and one piece of equipment developed by them during the course, including centrifuges, microscopes, orbital shaker, 3 axes micro manipulator and PCR machines.

Many thanks to the Volkswagenstiftung for their continued support in making this possible!
