  • Oh wow! I didn't realize they had come down in price so much on EBay. I'd still like to make one and source and document it for others, but at those prices I can go ahead and get started with splicing AND have a working base model to compare against mine against. Thanks @glims!
  • The lightbulb PCR is pretty cool. That's a good idea, I'll have to look into that or a similar air heat/cool to see if it can be as effective as an thermoelectric cooler. I've got someone who can mill and shape the aluminum for the most part, but to bore the tapered wells to a tolerance of 180µm needs a custom bit. (Been…

Basically the two big things to worry about is injecting directly into a vein (always aspirate to check first). And using too much lidocaine (more than 3mg/kg). And a good general…
