OpenPCR – Open source, hackable PCR machine

I’ve recently come across an exciting project, OpenPCR that aims to build a PCR machine by using simple elements that you can buy anywhere. You can pre-order the machine for 512$.

We want to produce an open design for a PCR machine. Our goal is to start this project up quickly and get a working prototype made for Maker Faire. After that, add on applications such as SNPs or PCR kits or synthetic biology.

A DIY Xerox machine for DNA: A fast, computer controlled PCR machine that uses normal PCR tubes and may be built mostly with off the shelf components + free schematics. It does thermal cycling as well as boil, cool, and freeze (4C) samples.

Please help them!
