Genetic Engineering Home Lab Kit

Great deal for the items in this kit: the 10k microfuge, proPCR machine (Manifest Biology), 3 pipettes, electrophoresis power source are terrific and not easy to find at this price. Gel box leaves something to be desired due to leakiness but nothing loads of glue can't fix. Blue light isn't ideal but suitable for visualization and inspired to build diy blue light box. Bacteria, plasmids, and other consumables will give me weeks of fun and entertainment. Overall, the kit is terrific for the price.

Very happy customer

I received my kit a few weeks ago. It is very complete, including everything I will need to start my biohacking adventures. Consider adding the biohacker class if your skills are, ahem, a little rusty (or if your interest level outweighs your skill set) to round things out.
Great starting kit
