BioFabLab RUC

An open laboratory, greenhouse and kitchen for prototyping with biological matter and materials at Roskilde University.

BioFabLab RUC is the biological part of Fablab RUC. We set up the BioFabLab facilities to be able to prototype with living matter, and combine this with electronics, digital fabrication, robots and coding. We build experimental installations and work with wild-type strains fungi, bacteria, insects and aquaponics, water treatment plants and biomaterials.

The BioFabLab consists of, a kitchen laboratory, a greenhouse and a classical chemistry / biology laboratory. (see labs & equipment here)

If you want to use the facilitates or get support for a project don't hesitate to get in touch.

Our main themes of work are:

  • Introduction to biology & Ecology
  • Open source hardware for science and labs
  • Biodesign & Ecosystem design principles that suport design or creative proccesses across diciplines
  • How to grow everything
  • Citizen Science / DIY Research: (getting the knowledge in scientific papers out, through the questions of the general citizens form their everyday life)
