Ok, following on from the chat.

Components to have your own lab.
Maybe someone out there can find better prices than the ones I can find.
Here's to hoping.

If someone can find where to buy the Lava Amp, would be most appreciated.

Vortex Mixer
I'm thinking if you can find any old blender where you can attach a few tubes will do the trick.
What's the difference between a Vortex Mixer and a Centrifuge?

Hehe, it'll most probably still do the same job as a proper Vortex Mixer

Magnetic Bead Stand
- Need more info on why this is needed and what it does?
- Limited information online

Buying a lab via Ebay for less than $1000


Maybe it'll be good to know what Das Lab use for Eterna's synthesis?

How are we going with the procedures and the list of consumables?
Also as a far off idea, would your lab be able to sell consumables?

@berex -- I don't think we're allowed to sell consumables, unfortunately. I like the idea of having those interested start looking for good prices for consumables and compile answers in a central location.

We made a list of stuff here: Google Spreadsheet with Consumables

Perhaps you could make a copy and start filling in additional notes/questions? I and others can also check in with our current serial numbers (this might take a few weeks since we're getting eterna experiments completely back on track after a few weeks of experimental delays).
