I am curious the thoughts/experiences of others on this, as it relates to safety for this specifically. I was told to do this, got one back (it doesn't quite fit in the the box upon adding the rubber strips, so may have the people over at the print lab try it again to tweak and improve it). The "ink" used I believe I was told is a bio-based plastic (from maize). I tend to be on the paranoid side for safety. Since electricity is involved, I am a little apprehensive about potential adverse reaction(s) being catalyzed. I suppose, though, the risk would be less than using acrylamide with an "unknown" component (not that everything now is used has been appropriately studied and approved), but we do still use ethidium bromide for NA staining (really should switch to something less controversial). If on the surface it worked fine, and the price was much less, would you have no problem using such an item?
