Tekla Labs will be announcing a 3D Printed Design Competition at Ace Monster Toys. Some of the designs already produced by them and their affiliates will be presented. They will demonstrate the Cell-Scope (CellScope Inc.), a cell-phone based microscope constructed of 3D printed parts as well as off-the-shelf components, and a centrifuge built from an egg-beater! More plans and information are available at: http://teklalabs.org/ and more information about the Cell-Scope is available here:
Tekla Labs is a University of California student run organization whose goal is to address the needs of researchers in developing countries in need of quality lab equipment. Tekla Labs is developing the plans necessary to build and test this equipment out of commonly available local materials or cheaply imported materials. Though in its early stage, Tekla Labs has already generated excitement from laboratories in such diverse places as Egypt and Panama.
