Lab equipment for molecular communication

You may have seen our PLOS ONE paper about tabletop molecular communication, which received loads of media coverage. One of the goals of this paper was to show that anyone can do experiments in molecular communication, without any wet labs or expensive apparatus.

For molecular communication researchers, hobbyists, or anyone else who wants to do experiments like ours, my PhD student, Nariman Farsad, is making our apparatus available as an easy-to-use kit. (Full disclosure: the equipment is distributed through a small business founded by Nariman; I have no financial interest in the business.)
