eBay as a way to equip your lab...

We have some old lab equipment we are getting rid of much of it will be recycled into other University departments. Some will be sold to equipment resellers like Biagen, Alliance Analytical, and Harlow Scientific. Some of it may even end up in the skip. But there may be one other place to advertise.



I took a look at what lab equipment was available and was quite surprised. My personal favourites were the Affy system, Robo Cycler PCR machine and the 377 DNA Sequencer.

I'd like to think you could equip a reasonable lab without leaving the comfort of your armchair. Imagine having this lot in your garage.
