Featured Project Portfolio

A researcher from the University of Manitoba approached us to find an easier way to prep lab specimens. They needed to extract the marrow from a large number of mouse femurs. This required securing the mouse bone in a standing position in a centrifuge.

How we did it

We 3D modelled a sleeve to fit into standard centrifuge Eppendorf tubes that can be easily and cheaply 3D printed for prototyping.
