  • Low Cost and Accurate Incubator for DIY Biology

    Hi Jon, Congratz! Great to hear that your incubator is working. And thanks a lot for the photos.This work is a part of my PhD research where I study the challenges and opportunities for utilizing open-source hardware platforms to support community driven science practices. I would love to hear more about your work and your experience of working in this project. Let me know if you are interested in having a short over-the-phone/skype conversation with me. Your thoughts will be immensely helpful for my research. In the meantime I can ship you the power module if you still want to try it out.Thanks.

    Hey sorry for the loooong delay in replying.140F is definetly doable. With this 75W bulb I tested up to 70C (160F) without melting the styrofoam.

    Hey Billy,It might effect photosensitive cultures. We have never worked with fungi.

    Hi, the one I used is not listed in DigiKey anymore. But you could find one from Amazon.

    Hi Jon, thanks for trying out my Instructable. It seems your circuit is ok. What version of Arduino you are using? I think we might need to tweak the Arduino code a bit if you are not using an UNO or Nano. And are you within the US? If not please let me know the frequency of your mains power too.
