This is our interesting project 👇🏼
During some of our early tests in the lab, in the midst of the first COVID break in Argentina, we were missing a simple but key piece of equipment (a magnetic stand for Eppendorf tubes), which was hard to get at that time due to the lockdown.
Wait a minute! 💡
The price (~300 USD) also seemed excessive for such a simple gadget. So Ignacio and Joaquin took on the challenge as a side project. They had the stand 3D printed and added some commercial neodymium magnets, for a total of under 20 USD. The results were so great that they later made a version for 96-well plates!
