42LAB is the first modular, portable and affordable biotech laboratory for students. With Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education becoming required in OECD countries, most schools struggle to introduce biotechnology to their students due to high equipment cost and troublesome experiment preparation. 42LAB solves this problem by providing a portable modular biotech equipment for students to conduct experiments as well as a companion app which serves as an electronic manual for students and a management tool for teachers. Our vision is to bring biotech experience to every student like what Raspberry pi does for computer science.
