We are Cell-Free Tech

We are a diverse bunch of highly motivated scientists, engineers and designers. We love working on unusual projects especially if there is some biology involved!

Our Mission Our Values Our location
We want to help everyone, from any background and in any location explore biology. Our projects are available online and we are happy to share a new idea from anyone in our community. We want biology to be as easy to get involved in as possible. That means cheap and easy to use. We are serious about opensource. We document and share as much as possible. Biology is for everyone and we don't keep secrets. We are based in the Microbiology Department of University College Cork as part of the RebelBio accelerator programme. We travel often and visit our collaborators all over the world!
