About This Project
Temperature-sensitive reagents are common in biology labs, and often
need to be stored in expensive ultra low temperature ULT refrigerators.
This is one of the highest cost barriers to setting up a biology lab and
makes research incredibly difficult in low resource settings. An enzyme
cooler stored within a standard freezer can be a viable alternative. We
plan to design, build, and test an open-source enzyme cooler that can be
built for as little as $25 without sacrificing performance.
