This one’s for the molecular and cell biology and pharmaceutical chemistry crowd: what’s on your current wishlist?
If you had a US$250,000 equipment budget, what would you buy to outfit the lab?
Assume that your department has all the big ticket items like real-time PCR, confocal microscopy, flow cytometer, histology gadgetry, >500MHz NMR, MALDI-TOF, LCs, etc.
And, no, not for scientist salaries – instrumentation/capital equipment only.
I just want to know if there are any newfangled whizbang thingamabobs out there that I haven’t seen in the last year or two, perhaps along the lines of the Luminex Bead-Lyte technology.
