Open source Real-Time PCR Thermocycler for making DNA diagnostics.
Turning DNA into data just became affordable, and biohacking will never be the same. This project is an open source Real-Time PCR Thermocycler, a powerful technology that can detect foodborne contaminants like E. Coli and Listeria, as well identify fraudulently labeled food products. It’s used to diagnose infections such as HIV, Malaria and even Ebola. Chai Biotechnologies has recently completed a successful Kickstarter to launch building this device around BeagleBone Black.
