Project: Tepnel DNA purification Robot

We received a donation of a Tepnel DNA purification system from a lab that was being decommissioned at the University of Exeter. It boots up and initial tests seem good.

We have the manual in pdf and we need to obtain or make up the buffers and consumables to start using it properly.

I think to make best use of it, it would be good if there was a project lead with some mini-prep experience to take on the role of maintainer.

Any volunteers?

    Hi,my name is carl. i have no experience nor any scientific eduaction as i never went to college. Im now 32 and over the last 2 years i have developed a strong interest in science, typically biology. Im a little reluctant to start the whole college/ uni proccess due to the time and effort to pass exams etc. After reading a report in last months focus magazine i learnt about the diybio lab and how it would be a great way for me to activly take my interests further.
    Im intreged by DNA sequenceing and the complexity of cells.
    Im would like to know if i would be able to join the community and would i have the opportunity to look at my own cells and extract my dna etc.
    also would there be any opportunity to get involved in other peoples projects.
    Please get back to me.
    Tgank you.
