Tekla Labs strives to meet the unmet laboratory equipment needs of scientists and schools in resource-poor settings worldwide. Through the in-kind donation of a Dozuki platform, they have launched an interactive website that makes instructions for do-it-yourself (DIY) laboratory equipment available to scientists across the world. In an effort to expand the impact of Tekla Labs, they are now using their website to create a global community of DIY builders and scientists in the developing world, creating a sustainable source for innovation that empowers science anywhere. In addition to this, their upcoming competition, BuildMyLab, will invite designs for laboratory equipment from makers worldwide. Finally, Tekla Labs will advertise in popular maker magazines to reach a wide audience of potential contributors. They are collaborating with other initiatives to identify specific equipment needs of scientists in the developing world to improve science infrastructure worldwide.
