Open source and low cost Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis [PFGE] equipment. It uses a standard commercially available electrophoresis chamber, 3D printed parts, a servo motor and simple electronics. Has a custom cooling system using a small pump and peltier cooler elements. Run parameters set and monitoring by bluetooth communication to an smartphone running a custom Android app. It separates DNA molecules up to ~2 Mbp (10 Mpb to be tested), costs USD ~$500 (about 1/50 of commercial ones).
