A nice laser-cut Tardi-GelBox for electrophoresis with a tardigrade on it! Cast your agar-gel, pour the running buffer (salt water), add your DNA samples, plug into a DC power supply (15 - 100V) and enjoy...
The design was cut with a laser-cutter. All the stuff in black lines is for cutting, the red stuff should be rastered area. The design is for 3mm Plexi. If you want dual colour, rearrange the stuff and make the sidewall with the tardigrade and the sidewalls of the gel-carrier in another colour.
Easy to assemble. Use acryl-glue and make sure it's water tight (that's the tricky bit :-)
As electrodes you can use a platinum wire. If you dont have one, a pencil could do the work aswell, for that you need to drill a small hole at the side-bottom of the box, stick in the graphite-pencil and hot-glue it to be water tight again.
