Syringe Pump

 

The lab was in need...

The lab Dr. D-Flo works in needed two syringe pumps for biological experiments. Commercial syringe pumps can cost upwards of $3,000! Dr. D-Flo built two of Naroom's open source syringe pumps for $200 each. While building Dr. D-Flo realized that these pumps could be used for a food 3D Printer. What exactly does that mean? Follow his youtube channel to find out!
