bioDIY on Euro Maker Faire: stem cells from the placenta

I am a big fan of bioDIY or home/garage biotech, the idea that tinkering could be extended to biological entities to. Just take a look at MAKE magazine current Backyard Biology Issue. I’ll be in Brussels at Wednesday at Maker Faire (list of Makers here) with the project: how to isolate stem cells from your baby’s placenta in a rent lab, or at home. Detailed instructions about the project will be published later so the information is restricted here.

There is plenty of room indeed for every biotech geek.

Bonus question for my stable readers: what can be the connection between private storage of placental derived stem cells and the continuous regeneration treatment called pimm?
