SynBio Stammtisch

Each time, we are around 10-20 people from all different backgrounds and share our perspectives and experiences on Biotechnology and Synthetic Biology while enjoying some fantastic dinner. Every time we choose another restaurant and we will update the location in the days before the event. This event is hosted by our partner synbio.info.

Bio.Kitchen Lab Intro Course

According to good lab practices, everyone must take part in the introduction and laboratory safety course. However, we will make it fun and show you all the awesome thing’s that you will be soon working with!

The OT-One S Standard is revolutionizing affordable lab automation and redefining the basics of liquid handling robots. It is as simple as a pipetting robot can get.
