Have you been naughty this year? Monopolized the lab’s PCR machines throughout the year, frustrating your colleagues? You can make it up to them by buying the lab another PCR machine.

As we reported earlier this year, the OpenPCR kit includes everything you need to build your own PCR machine for $512. The kit includes laser-cut case, a pre-assembled circuit board, a 16-well heat block, and lid heater. The kits are currently available for preorder. Any DIY biologist would be on their best behavior if they knew Santa was leaving one of these kits under the tree.
