How to build a molecular biology lab? - Conditions for a molecular biology lab, notes? (Jan/08/2006 )

Hi everyone,
I'd like to know how to build a molecular biological laboratory and wish help from all of you.
Thanks for your help.


Hi lecasper,

There is a short discussin on this a while ago.

Which area will you focus on?


I just set up our labs molecular biology section from the ground up. What is it you wish to do in your lab. Perhaps I can help you decide what you need.


You can first meet your neighbouring lab, get details of all the vendors and dealers. Be sure to get -20 and freezers first. Just go around in a lab and make list of all small equipments you will be requiring. If it takes longer to get orders delivered order Restriction enzymes and antibodies early.
