MIT Media Lab Creates Easy-to-Use Amino At-Home Biolab

Computing was a hobby for geeks in the 1980s. Much like that tinkering with biology is becoming a hobby for many. The MIT Media Lab has developed the Amino, a new biolab that permits just about anyone to grow a variety of cells in a controlled environment.

According to officials with the MIT, the system is designed for ease of use and holds capabilities comparable to professional laboratory incubators.

To make things easy, the research team behind the project developed the idea of the Amino App. The app combines living cells, DNA programs for the cells to run, and the growth liquid that spurs or retards growth.

Users can create these Amino Apps by changing the input variables. The system automates much of the process that still normally needs trained individuals and multiple devices.

Biolab support biological research on small plants, small invertebrates, microorganisms, animal cells, and tissue cultures. It usually includes an incubator equipped with centrifuges in which the preceding experimental subjects can be subjected to controlled levels of accelerations.
